History: In 1812 parts of Moldova and Bessarabia were annexed by Russia and the area was incorporated into the Soviet Union in the 20th century (since 1940: Moldovan Soviet Socialist Republic). In 1990 Moldova declared its sovereignty within the Soviet Union, and in 1991 its independence. In 2014 Moldova and the EU signed an association agreement.
In the parliamentary elections on November 30, 2014, the pro-Russian PSRM emerged as the strongest force with 20.5% of the vote and 25 seats. The pro-western PLDM got 20.2% of the vote and 23 seats. The third strongest party was the PCRM with 17.5% of the vote and 21 seats. It was followed by the parties PDM (15.8%, 19 seats) and PL (9.7%, 13 seats). PLDM and PDM agreed on the formation of a minority cabinet under the leadership of the previous Prime Minister I. Leancă. I. Leancă lost the vote of confidence on his government in parliament on February 12, 2015. Then the businessman Chiril Gaburici (* 1976) nominated as the new head of government. On February 18, 2015, Parliament expressed its confidence in its PLDM / PDM cabinet. During the vote, Gaburici also received the support of the PCRM. On May 3, 2015, thousands of people protested in Chişinău against corruption and a lack of transparency in connection with the loss of around € 900 million through transactions by three banks. Prime Minister Gaburici announced his resignation on June 12, 2015 after allegations of forging his high school diploma. Natalia Gherman (* 1969), Deputy Head of Government and Foreign Minister, succeeded him on June 22, 2015 on a temporary basis. Finally, the pro-western parties PDM, PL and PLDM agreed on the formation of a new coalition cabinet under the leadership of the PLDM politician Valeriu Streleţ (* 1970), who was sworn in as the new Prime Minister on July 30, 2015. Domestic political conditions did not stabilize, however. On September 6, 2015, tens of thousands protested against the corruption of the oligarchs and rulers in the capital. They called for the resignation of the government and the president, new elections and the punishment of those responsible for the banking scandal. The protest was organized by the independent citizens’ platform “Dignity and Truth”. Further demonstrations followed in the following weeks. In connection with the banking scandal, the judicial authorities arrested former Prime Minister Vlad Filat on October 16, 2015. On October 29, 2015, parliament withdrew its confidence in the Streleţ government by 65 votes out of 101. The motion of no confidence by the pro-Russian parties was also supported by the MPs of the PDM belonging to the government camp, on whose course the oligarch and early parliamentary vice-president Vlad Plahotniuc (* 1966) has a great influence. After the fall of Streleţ, the PL politician and previous deputy prime minister Gheorge Brega (* 1951) temporarily took over the office of head of government. Efforts of PDM, Plahotniuc to make it prime minister failed. Finally, on January 20, 2016, the pro-European parliamentary majority elected the previous communications minister and PDM politician P. Filip as the new head of government with 57 out of 101 votes. The election sparked riot-related mass protests in which protesters demanded new elections.
