Reports, analyses and information relating to the legislative election held in Moldova on 24 February 2019.
The 101 seats in the national Parliament was elected according to a mix system introduced in 2017, by which 50 members are elected on party lists and the 51 other members in individual constituencies. The electoral threshold varied depending on the type of lists and turnout must be at least 33% to ensure the election's validity.
The election campaign was tainted by allegations of violence and abuse. Media sources also reported on the elimination of hundreds of fake Facebook accounts, ahead of the parliamentary election.
The electoral results produced a hung parliament - while the opposition Socialist party gathered the highest amount of seats (34), it was still not enough to obtain a parliamentary majority. The incumbent Democratic party obtained the second highest number (30), while the ACUM platform became the third biggest force in Parliament (27 seats).
