Parliamentary elections were held in Moldova on 6 March 2005.[1] The result was a victory for the Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova, which won 56 of the 101 seats.[2]

Electoral system[edit]

The Parliament was elected by proportional representation in a single national constituency. In 2002 the electoral law was amended to change the electoral threshold, which had previously been at 3% for independent candidates and 6% for political parties and electoral blocs.[3] For electoral blocs of two parties it was raised to 9%, and for blocs of three or more, it was raised to 12%.[3]
