Hundreds of people took part in a rally in the Moldovan capital, Chisinau, on September 17 to denounce a new electoral law. The crowd chanted slogans such as "We will not give up" and "Victory!" Reaching the headquarters of the Moldovan public television, the protesters called for an increase in television time provided to the opposition. The rally was organized by two opposition parties who say the recent changes in the electoral legislation favor the country's two largest political parties while supporters of the new rules insist they will make politicians more accountable. Already signed by Moldovan President Igor Dodon, the law is due to be first applied in the next parliamentary elections in November 2018. (RFE/RL's Moldovan Service)
