Russian media quoted Communist party officials as saying Wednesday that Vladimir Voronin will step down as president of Moldova to become a member of the country’s parliament. [...]
The political stalemate in Moldova continued despite the general election in July, the second in four months, that reversed the swing in favor of the pro-Western opposition coalition.
The coalition announced at a press conference in Chisinau last week that Marian Lipu, the Democratic Party chief, would be nominated as president, and Vlad Filat, head of the Liberal Democratic Party, as prime minister.
However, it is far short of a 61-seat majority in the 101-member-parliament required to nominate a successor to Voronin.
