On Monday, 3 July, 2017, during the European Parliament’s plenary session in Strasbourg, a debate on the macro-financial assistance to Moldova was held.

Members of the European Parliament had an opportunity to discuss those conditions before the voting took place. The recent plans of the Moldovan authorities to change electoral system proved to be particularly controversial amongst the MEPs.
