The recent elections in Moldova are prompting political games. The ruling Democratic Party chaired by the oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc probably will form a government with the Party of Socialists. The pro-European bloc ACUM likely will remain in the opposition. This points to the possible further regression in Moldova’s relationship with the EU. In ongoing works under the Eastern Partnership programme after 2020, Poland may promote stricter conditions on further economic cooperation with the EU depending on the implementation of pro-European standards by the Moldovan authorities.
