As a law graduate, Dinu Turcanu started his career in 2005, working as a consultancy intern to the then deputy speaker of parliament Iurie Rosca, leader of the Christian Democratic People’s Party (PPCD). For a couple of years, Mr. Turcanu was part of PPCD’s leading bodies; he even acted as the party’s secretary-general for a while.
He tried to enter the parliament on PPCD lists, four times in a row: on 5 April 2009, on 29 April 2009, on 28 November 2010, and on 30 November 2014, but PPCD never passed the electoral threshold.
Since 2012, Mr. Turcanu works as the administrator at Vidicom-Farm SRL, a firm he appears to own 50%. He says the firm has been inactive for years, but still exists and he still runs.
During the period 2017-2018, Dinu Turcanu worked as a program manager at the Balti Free Economic Zone. In 2019 he re-entered politics: he competed for a seat in the Orhei district council as part of the Sor Party team. The attempt was successful and the council elected his as their chairman in November 2019.
