    The Supreme Soviet of Transdniestria (Moldovan: Советул Супрем ал Републичий Молдовенешть Нистрене or Sovietul Suprem al Republicii Moldoveneşti Nistrene , Russian: Верховный Совет Приднестровской Молдавской Республики , Ukrainian: Верховна Рада Придністровської Молдавської Республіки ) is the parliament of the internationally unrecognized state .


    With the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1990, there was a conflict in Moldova between the Romanian- speaking part of the Moldovans, whose representatives wanted to unite the country with Romania , and ethnic minorities. On the eastern bank of the Dniester , a separate state called Transnistrian Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic ( PMSSR for short ) was established independently of the central power in Chișinău . From this emerged today's Transnistria, which since August 1991 has officially been called the Transnistrian Moldavian Republic or in Russian PMR / Pridnestrovskaja Moldavskaja Respublika. Igor Smirnov was declared the first chairman of the Provisional Supreme Soviet of Transnistria on September 2, 1990. Since the constitutional amendment in 2009, it has been a unicameral parliament with 43 members who are directly elected.
