Maia Sandu is a clear choice for this year’s Emerging Europe Public Figure of the Year award because of her unwavering devotion to democracy and the rule of law in Moldova.
Emerging Europe has recognized Moldovan President Maia Sandu as its Public Figure of the Year.
Sandu, who was elected in November 2020, ran on a platform of reducing poverty and combating the corruption that has wreaked havoc on the economy of Europe’s poorest country.
Last month she delivered on her promise when the Moldovan government formally applied to join the European Union.
“We want to live in peace, prosperity, and be part of the free world,” said Sandu in March. “While some decisions take time, others must be made quickly and decisively, and take advantage of the opportunities that come with a changing world.”
She did it with every one of the few tools she had at her disposal: a legislative election in July transformed Moldova’s political environment. Many people are hoping that the transformation will last.
“This award is recognition for President Sandu’s commitment to democracy and the rule of law, and to the fight against corruption in Moldova,” says Andrew Wrobel, Emerging Europe’s founder.
Since Sandu took office, Moldova has become a country that now offers hope of a better future to all its citizens, ready to take its place at the table of other European countries.
