From the very beginning, I had no reservations against the idea of open elections of candidates for the parliamentary list of the DPM. I have always said that reform of the political class shall start from within. I have said that this type of real change shall be performed by deeds rather then by words - and behold our list for the Parliament will be drawn up based on the results of Sunday's elections.

Yesterday we kicked off the open election campaign in the DPM. This moment represents fulfilment of a promise that I made when I started reforming the party: that our list of candidates for the Parliament will be decided by people, rather than by political leaders. This is for the first time in Moldova when a party forms its electoral list by means of a popular vote!

What happened was good and was expected to happen - Moldovan Parliament ratified the Association Agreement with the European Union. It's an important step for Moldova, for all of us. Moldova's future appears more clearly now, and the country's prospects are becoming clearer and better. Congratulations to Moldova!

The same thing I found had not changed seven years ago, when my second son was born, at the same maternity.
