, Moldovan voters went to the polls to elect the country's 101 members of parliament for the next legislative term. As widely expected, the Party of Action and Solidarity (PAS) of incumbent President Maia Sandu emerged victorious, securing 53% of the popular vote and a close-to-constitutional majority.
The result represents a historic mandate and most likely the beginning of a new chapter in Moldovan politics, centered around a business-friendly and reformist PAS government.
