Thank you very much for your prayers.Most of last week I also spent praying and reflecting on the situation created after the Parliament elections. On Sunday we celebrated the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Yesterday I preached about resurrection on a stadium in a village in the northern part of Moldova. Over 30 people came forward to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. I spoke with the mayor of village and sensed the frustration and disappointment he had concerning the elections.
Today, our Constitutional Court, in spite of over 20000 frauds reported by the opposition parties, validated the Parliament elections. On the one hand, I am glad that finally I can say that I am an elected Member of Parliament, but on the other hand I am very sad to see that neither our Constitutional Court, nor international bodies like the European Parliament, US Congress and White House, OSCE condemned these elections as being compromised and fraudulous. Mr. Mirek Topolanek, the Czech Prime Minister, who currently is the President of the EU visited Moldova today, but unfortunately he didn't have the courage or didn't want to address the issue of the elections and street protests in a strait manner in the light of the European values of freedom, human rights and democracy.
The newly elected Parliament will probably meet for the first time next week. It is difficult to say how things will develop. The Parliament must elect the President of the country, which requires 61 votes. The Communist Party has 60 votes. They need one more vote. Hopefully the opposition will stay united, but nobody can guarantee that all 41 MPs from the opposition will stay firm. If the Parliament fails three times to elect the President there will be new elections.
Praise the Lord, the situation is calm now, but pray for the future developments. Pray for the three leaders of the opposition parties. Pray for me, so I can play an important role in the new Parliament. Pray for truth and justice, peace and mercy.
