Dorin Chirtoacă in 2009

His mother is Valentina, sister of Mihai Ghimpu. During high school he studied in Iași and graduated in 2001 from University of Bucharest Faculty of Law. Between 2001 and 2003 Chirtoacă worked for Surprize, Surprize ("Surprises, Surprises"), a show broadcast on TVR1. Then he worked for the Helsinki Committee for Human Rights in Moldova (2003–2005) as Program Coordinator.[3]

Dorin Chirtoacă has been the vice-president of the Liberal Party of Moldova since May 2005. Due to low turnout the 2005 Chișinău election was invalidated, but he became the mayor of Chişinău in 2007. He defeated his Communist Party Veaceslav Iordan opponent in the 2007 municipal elections, which resulted in a clear victory for a loose anti-communist coalition in the city of Chișinău (61.17%).[4] He was considered to be the most important opponent of the communists in the April 2009 election and July 2009 election.

Chirtoacă won reelection as mayor of Chișinău in June 2011, narrowly defeating the candidate from the Communist Party of the Republic of Moldova, Igor Dodon.[5] He received 50.6% of the vote to Dodon's 49.4%.
