"On October 20, the voice of the people will clearly say in which direction we want to take the Republic of Moldova. The sovereign decision of the citizens will also be enshrined in the Constitution. This country project is not the project of a person, it is not the project of a political party. This project belongs to all citizens and is for future generations. For the first time in the last decades, we live not only the hope of a better future, but we feel that now we have the chance of a better present and the duty to bring the Republic of Moldova into the European Union", declared Igor Grosu.

It will be organized on October 20, 2024, and citizens will answer the question: "Are you in favor of the accession of the Republic of Moldova to the European Union?".
