Parliamentary elections were held in Moldova on 25 February 2001.[1] The result was a victory for the Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova, which won 71 of the 101 seats.[2]

Electoral system[edit]

Parliament was elected by proportional representation in a single national constituency. In 2000 the electoral law was amended to change the electoral threshold, which had previously been at 4% for both political parties and independents. For independent candidates the threshold was lowered to 3%, whilst for political parties and electoral blocs it was raised to 6%.[3]
