On Sunday, Moldova held elections for all 101 seats in the country's parliament. Four independent candidates and 21 political parties participated in the ballot.

The vote split up the country into two distinct political camps, with the ruling pro-EU alliance of Liberal Democrats, Democrats and ex-Liberal Reformists running against pro-Russian opposition parties of Socialists and Communists who are calling for Eurasian integration.

On Tuesday, the Socialist party said it would not enter a pro-European coalition, saying it planned a referendum on joining the Russia-led Customs Union after its victory was confirmed. According to Socialist leader Igor Dodon, his party would submit a bill to parliament rejecting the Association Agreement with the European Union, signed earlier this year, and seek entry to the union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan instead.
