Exit Poll Says Communists Fall Short

Exit polling by the Institute of Public Politics suggests President Voronin's Communist Party got 41.7 of the vote, well short of a majority that would allow them to control either the legislature or the presidential vote single-handed.

The rest of the field looks like this, according to the exit poll: Liberal Democrats at 17.4 percent; Liberal Party at 16 percent; Democratic Party at 12.5 percent; and Our Moldova at 8 percent. No other parties looked likely to get into parliament.
