Moldova: Moldova fails to choose President

FOCUS Information Agency - Moldova's parliament has failed in its latest attempt to choose a president, increasing the likelihood of a third general election in less than a year, BBC informed.

The opposition Communists refused to take part in the vote for Marian Lupu, the pro-Western coalition's candidate.

The coalition only holds 53 of the 101 seats in parliament - short of the 61 required to elect a president.

Europe's poorest nation has been in crisis since elections in April sparked massive street protests and riots.
