Andrian Candu: Pavel Filip to repeatedly propose the new Government candidatures to President Dodon

“Pavel Filip will repeatedly propose the candidatures without any change and President Dodon will, according to the Constitution, approve them. If he violates the Constitution, there is the Constitutional Court. We will address the Constitutional Court to come up with a solution to unlock this situation,” said Candu.

Yesterday, President Igor Dodon announced that he had rejected the candidatures of the ministers announced by the leader of the Democratic Party, Vladimir Plahotniuc. According to the head of state, most of the proposed candidates have demonstrated “inconsistency, lack of professionalism and regrettable opportunism in previous functions and activities.”

Reminder: On December 19, the leader of the Democratic Party of Moldova (PDM), Vlad Plahotniuc, announced that 7 members of the Government will be replaced in office. Thus, two new prime ministers and a former president of the Constitutional Court will be part of the new governmental gasket.

Democrats replace seven Ministers in the Moldovan Government, Iurie Leancă- new deputy PM for European Integration

On December 19th, the leader of the Democratic Party, Vlad Plahotniuc, announced about replacing seven Ministers within the Government of Moldova. This move was made right after the Prime-Minister Filip congratulated his Cabinet for “professionalism and seriousness”. Strange, right?

The new Ministers are the following:

  1. Iurie Leancă– former PM during 2013-2014, Foreign Minister in Filat’s cabinets, current Vice Speaker of the Parliament, leader of the European People’s Party of Moldova- replaces Andrei Galbur;
  2. Deputy Prime-Minister for Reintegration, Cristina Lisnic– current director of the European Integration Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs- replaces George Balan;
  3. Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration, Tudor Ulianovschi– current Ambassador of Moldova to Switzerland- replaces Andrei Galbur;
  4. Minister of Economy and Infrastructure, Chiril Gaburici– former PM in four months of 2015, former director of Moldcell- replaces Octavian Calmîc;
  5. Minister of Justice, Alexandru Tănase– ex-President of the Constitutional Court, former Minister of Justice in Filat 1 Cabinet, founder of the Liberal-Democratic Party- replaces Vladimir Cebotari;
  6. Minister of Agriculture, Regional Development and Environment, Liviu Volcovici– current rector of the Agricultural University of Moldova- replaces Vasile Bîtca;
  7. Minister of Healthcare, Work and Social Protection, Svetlana Cebotari– current director of Blood Transfusion Center- replaces Stela Grigoraș.
