The United States welcomes the Democratic Party’s announcement that it is withdrawing from government in favor of Prime Minister Maia Sandu and the coalition formed by the democratically-elected parliament.

We are encouraged that both the new coalition and the former government have committed to a peaceful transfer of power reflecting the will of the people of Moldova.  We call for restraint during this time of transition.

The United States will continue to monitor developments in Moldova closely and remains committed to working with all Moldovans as they build a more prosperous and democratic future.
