Commenting on the Moldovan Parliament's election last Friday of a new President of Moldova, ELDR President and European Parliament permanent rapporteur on Moldova Sir Graham Watson commented:
"The Moldovan Parliament and the new President-elect Nicolae Timofti both deserve our congratulations. A three year political deadlock has finally been resolved."
"It is unfortunate that the largest Communist faction chose to boycott the vote. I hope they can be brought on board."
"I welcome the emphasis that President Timofti has already put on European integration as one of the 'national ideas' that can and must unify all Moldovans. Integration into the European family and eventually the EU has to be the ultimate goal."
