Moldova: Corruption arrests rock pro-EU coalition

Source: Reuters

"A minister in Moldova's pro-European government and two of his deputies resigned on Monday, after their party withdrew from the ruling coalition over the arrest of its deputy chairman on corruption charges. While the now two-party coalition retains a de facto majority in the 101-seat parliament, the Liberal Party's exit threatens more instability in the ex-Soviet nation, which has seen three governments fall since 2015. On Friday, the Liberals quit the coalition in protest at the arrest of Chisinau mayor and Liberal deputy chairman, Dorin Chirtoaca, for alleged abuse of office linked to the distribution of parking contracts in the capital."
