Moldovans are heading to the polls in an election which is being seen as a contest between pro-EU and pro-Russian parties.
At the moment, the three pro-Eu parties who form the coalition government have around 40 percent of the vote in opinion polls. Some analysts believe they will need to negotiate with the Communist party to hold on to their coalition.
The Communists, who have around 23 percent of the vote and were in power from 2001-2009, are widely seen as a centrist party open to both Europe and Moscow.
Dumitru Diacov, leader of the pro-European Democratic Party said: “It is of course desirable that the Communists could represent a constructive political force. So that we will have a pro-European coalition and a pro-European opposition. And then we will find different possibilities to work together.”
