Moldova Political Map


Moldova has a complicated political landscape.

As with most countries, there is a left-right economic axis ranging from hardline communism (total state control over economic activity and heavy redistribution) to economic liberalism (the most minimal role possible for the state & no redistribution).

In Moldova, however, there's an even more important axis, which has to do with ethnic identity. It ranges from those who see themselves as part of the slavonic world through various shades of moldovan identity to those who see themselves as Romanians.

In the image, I've attempted to plot the positions of Moldova's political parties on these two axes. These are just my views, so please let me know if I've got anything wrong.
