Mihai Godea (born January 25, 1974, Pîrliţa) is a Moldovan politician, the President of the Democratic Action Party since 6 November 2011.[1]


After finishing his studies in politics an history, Godea started an activist career in the NGO sector.[2] In 1999 he was appointed as a program coordinator at “CONTACT” National Assistance and Information Center for NGOs in Moldova.[3] Later in 2005, he became the Executive Director of the organization.[4] Additionally, he was engaged in civic activities by holding the secretary position of the Coalition for Rural Economic Development since 2003.[5]

Nevertheless, alongside Alexandru Tanase and Vladimir Filat he founds the Liberal Democratic Action Party in 2007. He conceives the position of the Vice-President of the party. In the period between 2009 and 2011, he was the member of Moldovan Parliament of the XVIIth, XVIIIth and XIXth Legislatures.
