TIMEFRAME expected from 7/30/2017, 12:00 PM until 7/30/2017, 11:59 PM (Europe/Chisinau). COUNTRY/REGION Chisinau

Event

A rally held by opposition parties is currently underway in the Moldovan capital, Chisinau on Sunday, July 30. Held outside of Parliament building, the protest is likely to cause localized travel disruption. The protests have so far been peaceful; similar related demonstrations were also held without any disturbance on July 20 and 21.

Context

The rally is being held to protest proposed reform of the electoral system. The country's pro-EU Democratic Party of Moldova (PDM) proposed the bill for the change from proportional electoral system to a mixed system ahead of next year's parliamentary elections; opponents believe that the system will favour larger parties, including the PDM.

Advice

Individuals in Chisinau are advised to the demonstrations as a precaution, and to allow extra time for any delays in travel in central Chisinau.
