Protesters against the recent decision to reform the electoral system rallied outside the presidential palace in Chisinau, Friday, protesting the Moldovan parliament’s adoption of a mixed electoral system.

Protesters chanted slogans against the reform, demanding the Moldovan President Igor Dodon come out before the crowd to talk to the protesters.

Moldova’s pro-EU Democratic Party (PDM), under Prime Minister Pavel Filip, proposed the bill for the country to move from a proportional electoral system to a mixed system ahead of next year’s parliamentary elections. It is believed that the new system will favour larger instead of smaller parties.
