The Party of Socialists’ candidate for the office of President of Moldova, Igor Dodon, threatens that he will mount violent protests if attempts are made to remove him from the presidential race. The politician developed the issue in the talk show “Pahomi” on Realitatea TV channel.

"I warn them that they will remain without shoes. About 500,000 people signed in my favor. They will all come to Chisinau to protest. So, they should not play with the fire and exclude us from the campaign," said the Socialist leader.

Igor Dodon also said that he would not withdraw from the election campaign, regardless of the pressure, and expressed his confidence that he would win the presidential elections.

"I keep my word and will not leave. Over 40% of the voters are already ready to vote for me," stated the Socialist candidate.

Maia Sandu, the candidate of the Party "Action and Solidarity", requested the Central Electoral Commission to check the origin of the financial resources of the Party of Socialists after RISE Moldova last week published an investigation saying Igor Dodon is financed by an offshore company.
