14 ex-Communist MPs joined the Democratic Party caucus in Moldova Parliament

14 former Communist deputies, members of the unofficial Social-Democrat Platform, joined the Democratic Party (PDM) caucus in the Parliament of Moldova. The announcement was made on March 10th by the Democrat caucus head Marian Lupu and the leader of the so-called turncoats Violeta Ivanov.

“Starting from today, PDM has 34 deputies, becoming the biggest caucus in the Parliament”, declared Lupu.

The ex-Communists, new Democrats are Alexandr Bannicov, Anatolie Zagorodnîi, Boris Golovin, Anatolie Gorilă, Igor Vremea, Corneliu Mihalache, Galina Balmoș, Sergiu Stati, Elena Gudumac, Petru Porcescu, Victor Mîndru, Violeta Ivanov, Artur Reșetnicov and Vladimir Vitiuc.

The 14 MPs left the Communist Caucus on 21 December 2015 in order to get the country out of crisis launched by some egoist interests, leaders, although some current Communists reported (with no follow-up) about attempts to buy deputies. The same MPs asked the Constitutional Court to cancel the decree of ex-President Nicolae Timofti to appoint Ion Sturza as Prime-Minister and were absent at the Parliament session meant for the confidence vote for Sturza’s cabinet.

President Dodon’s reaction after suspension: Instead of stopping the violations committed by the government, CC gives a green light to their promotion

“I regret that instead of stopping serious violations committed by the government, the Constitutional Court gives the green light to their further promotion. This raises great questions about the professionalism and independence of Court judges.”

“Those in power and the institutions they control simply do not realize the severity of their actions and the consequences that will arise. But, sooner or later, they’ll have to pay for these violations,” declared Dodon on his Facebook page.

President Igor Dodon says that by the decision to suspend him, the Constitutional Court has committed a double illegality and that his attempt to halt a serious violation of the law has been thwarted “by a so-called acting president”.

A group of Democratic Party deputies demanded temporary suspension of President Igor Dodon

President Igor Dodon is on the brink of his fourth temporary suspension after he repeatedly refused to appoint two candidates as ministers.

Today, a group of deputies of the Democratic Party submitted a petition to the Constitutional Court, requesting “a statement of the circumstances justifying the interim president of the Republic of Moldova in order to overcome the constitutional blockade generated by the deliberate refusal to fulfill the constitutional obligation of the appointment of some members of the Government.”

Reminder: Although Prime Minister Pavel Filip declared he will insist on the two candidatures, Igor Dodon refuses to sign the decrees for the appointment of the new ministers proposed by PDM. Dodon said that Silvia Radu, proposed for the position of Minister of Health, would not be a specialist in the given field, and Nicolae Ciubuc, who was promoted to the Minister of Agriculture, would have problems of integrity.

Silvia Radu, proposed as Minister of Health, Labor and Social Protection
