“There is not a single area where the interim deputies of the Action and Solidarity party have demonstrated significant results.
Moldovan citizens are paying a heavy price for the total inaction of the ruling party, for the incompetence and irresponsibility of the leaders of the Action and Solidarity party,” the party said in the statement.
