The Wilson Center’s Kennan Institute invite you to “Maia Sandu and Her Party’s Landslide Victory: More Than an East vs. West Narrative,” a virtual event which will take place on Friday, July 30 between 1:00 and 1:30 pm. The event will feature as speakers William H. Hill, Global Fellow and Former Professor of National Security Strategy, National War College and David Smith, Entrepreneur & President, Moldova Small Enterprise Alliance and will be moderated by Jill Dougherty, Global Fellow and Former CNN Foreign Affairs Correspondent.

Please note this is a pre-recorded conversation and audience questions will not be collected.

In mid-July, Moldovan President Maia Sandu’s Party of Action and Solidarity (PAS), running on a reform and anti-corruption platform, won a decisive victory over the pro-Russia Communist and Socialist Bloc in Moldova’s parliamentary election. The election resulted in the PAS netting 63 out of 101 seats, the largest single-party majority in more than a decade. What were the driving factors behind the PAS’s victory and what might the election signal about Moldova’s evolving politics? David Smith and William Hill join Jill Dougherty for a conversation analyzing the outcome and impact of the election.
