Radical Right-Wing Political Parties and Groups

Radical Right-Wing Political Parties and Groups Unionists from the movement Tinerii Moldovei on the streets of Chisinau.

The Romanian movement «Noua Dreaptă» (The New Right(wing)) is an organisation that promotes extremist and xenophobic ideas, emphasising the principles of the legionary movements. Members of the organisation glorify legionary movement leader Corneliu Zelea Codreanu and the fascist criminal Ion Antonescu. Therefore, the organisation is prohibited in both Romania and almost in Moldova, as the Ministry of Justice has not registered its charter. In November 2009, shortly after the accession of the new government the Ministry of Justice of Moldova officially registered the National Christian movement, part of the movement «Noua Dreaptă». The Minister of Justice at the time was a protégé of the Liberal Democratic Party, Alexandru Tanase, who is the chairman of the Constitutional Court now.

The National Liberal party of Vitalia Pavlichenko is of nationalistic ideology.

The Civic Platform «Acţiunea 2012" ("Action 2012"), established in 2011, has positioned itself as a coalition of non-governmental organisations and initiative groups supporting association of the Republic of Moldova with Romania and advocating for "the implementation of the main goals of past, present and future generations - the union of the Romanians on both banks of the Prut River into a single Romanian state".

Liberal (Liberal-reformist) party, represented in the parliament today, can be attributed to the nationalist forces. Despite the fact that the party has positioned itself as a right-wing liberal, it's their legislative initiatives aimed at discrimination against minority languages and the rejection of the Moldavian as the state language in favour of the Romanian, that qualifies them as a nationalist.

In 2014, a new movement emerged in Moldova – Tinerii Moldovei (Moldovan Youth) – which also actively promotes unification with Romania. Meanwhile, there are mayors of cities and local councillors who are sympathetic to their views. Among them is Chisinau mayor Dorin Chirtoaca, vice-chairman of the Liberal Party, regularly speaking in support of the Romanian nationalists, and pronouncing Russophobic speeches.
