Moldovan Referendum Fails

Only about 30% of eligible voters took part in the constitutional referendum in Moldova, which falls below the 33% minimum required for the referendum to be valid. The referendum was supposed to unblock the current political deadlock by introducing direct elections for the Moldovan presidency. The Moldovan parliament, which under the current Constitution elects the President, has been unable to elect one.
