The second round of the presidential elections in the neighboring Republic of Moldova, the former Soviet country with a predominantly Romanian-speaking population, is held on Sunday.

Competing are the pro-Russia socialist Igor Dodon and the pro-West reformist Maia Sandu.

Some 3 million citizens are expected to the polls to elect their president, for the first time after 16 years in which the president was designated by Parliament.

Pundits say that the stake of the ballot is not just political, but also geo-political.

Dodon wants his country to join the Russia-Belarus-Kazakhstan Union, while Sandu stands for reform and European integration.
