The European People’s Party of Moldova (Romanian: Partidul Popular European din Moldova, PPEM) is a centre-right political party in Moldova. The party is led by Iurie Leancă, who was Prime Minister of Moldova from 2013 to 2015. For the duration of this premiership, Leancă was a member of the Liberal Democratic Party of Moldova (PLDM).

History

The government of Moldova which emerged from coalition talks after the 2014 parliamentary election did not command a parliamentary majority and relied on support from the Moldovan Communist party (PCRM). The PLDM, led by former Prime Minister Vlad Filat, conceded Leancă's departure from office to the PCRM as part of this arrangement. Leancă, who was elected on the PLDM list, resigned from the party in response and launched the PPEM to continue advocating positions, notably Pro-Europeanism, he feels his former party has failed to uphold by entering into informal cooperation with Moldova's Communist Party.[1] Besides Leancă, former deputy Prime Minister Eugen Carpov and Nicolae Juravschi are the party's other MPs. The party participated in the 2015 local election as the European People’s Platform Electoral Bloc — Iurie Leancă with the Liberal Reformist Party, Democratic Action and Democracy at Home.

Ideology

The party leadership has expressed opposition to Moldova's communist legacy and opposes even informal cooperation with communist parties. From this perspective anti-communism can be seen as party of the PPEM's platform.
