The electoral instability falls into the continuous shifts in paradigms, systems, values and economic performance which countries around the world still experience. We believe it is common sense that the election process in a democratic country has an important impact (even a manipulation effect) on its economy. In this context, this paper aims to test the interferences between the political cycle and the business cycle in Romania and Republic of Moldova. The paper aims to verify if the government has an expansionist policy before the elections, which leads to a lower level of taxes and unemployment and contributes, at the same time, to the increase of the consumption per inhabitant, of the GDP and of the subventions granted by the government, followed by a restrictive one.
