Home / Politics / Diakov: 16 Primars from PSDE Move to PAS
It relates to primars from Hincesti district, led by the district chair Iurie Levinschi. According to Diakov, this is the third wave of exits from the European Social Democratic Party. Ion Sula, the chairman of the PSDE, has not yet confirmed or commented on this information. The journalists have also requested a comment from PAS. “Mayors serve only the residents of the communities that elected them and should promote their interests first. The aim of PAS is to promote Moldova’s accession to the European Union. We have worked and will continue to work together with officials, mayors, politicians and civil society representatives who share the same vision. Mayors who join PAS do so for value reasons, following the interests of the people who elected them, without conditions from either side. PAS has received requests to join the party from several mayors and high-ranking officials from Hincesti district. All membership applications will be analyzed,” said Adriana Vlas. In the autumn local elections, the PSDE won 133 mayoral mandates and 1,209 local and district councilor seats. In November 2022, the Democratic Party of Moldova became the European Social Democratic Party and Ion Sula was elected its leader. The PDM’s honorable leader Dumitru Diacov did not support the name change.
