Court orders vote recount in R. of Moldova

Moldova’s Supreme Court on Friday ordered a vote recount for the country’s recent parliamentary elections, the RIA news agency reported. The recount would review the results of a November 28 parliamentary election won by the Co­mmunist Party. The Commu­nists, though clear victors in the vote, had submitted a brief to the high court alleging election law violations giving their pro-Europe op­ponents excess seats in parliament. Vio­lations included voters casting multiple ballots and errors in ad­ding up ballot totals, Commu­nist lawyers said. Interna­tional observers rated the election generally free and fair. If the election results are up­held, Moldova’s 101-seat parliament will be split 42 seats to the Com­mu­­nists, 32 seats to the centre- right Liberal Democrats, 15 seats to the centre-left Democratic Party, and 12 seats to the centre-right Liberals.
