Iurie Roşca (born 31 October 1961 in Teleneşti) is a Moldovan politician who has served as president of the Christian-Democratic People's Party (PPCD) since 1994.[1]


Iurie Roşca graduated in 1984 from the journalism faculty of the State University of Moldova. He then worked as a correspondent for the newspaper Tinerimea Moldovei (The Youth of Moldova), a reporter for the National Television of Moldova, and an upper-level curator at the Dimitrie Cantemir Literature Museum in Chişinău.[2]

Political career[edit]

In 1989 Roşca became one of the founders of the Popular Front of Moldova (of which the PPCD is a successor). He was executive president of the organization in 1989–1994. Between 1990 and 2009 he was a deputy in the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova.
