Moldova pro-EU parties take narrow lead in elections

A round of intensive political horse-trading is on the cards following Moldova’s parliamentary elections.

No party appears able to form a government although, after a partial count, the three pro-EU parties do have a narrow lead over their pro-Moscow rivals.
