    Last Communist regime in Europe facing defeat

    The last remaining Communist government in mainland Europe appears set to lose power after the ruling party in Moldova failed to gain a majority in parliamentary elections.

    Amid frantic behind-the-scenes horse-trading, four West-leaning opposition parties which between them won more than 50 per cent of the vote said today that they intended to unite to form a government in the former Soviet republic.

    If they carry out their promise, they will prevent the Communists from remaining in office - leaving the island of Cyprus as the last remaining European state with a Communist government.

    “Democracy and truth has finally been victorious,” said Vlad Filat, leader of the Liberal Democrats.

    I didn't even know this country existed or was communist.

    There will be a new election soon. The coalition will be far too fragile, it only has 53 of 101 seats, that combined with the fact that this is a 4 party coalition (they will be too weak and unable to agree on legislation) means the government will soon become impotent and fall.

    I don't really know if you can call them "Communist".
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    Uh oh. I bet the White House will have their officials' visas revoked now.
