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?

According to Plahotniuc, the party wants to make the Government “technocratic” and to focus on professionalism rather than the political character.

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.

President Igor Dodon declared that he would be willing to sign the resignation letters of the current ministers but that he would reject the new ministers, suggesting some should stay in prison, not in the seat of Vice Prime-Minister.

So far, Igor Dodon has been suspended three times because he has repeatedly refused to sign decrees to appoint several ministers proposed by the Democratic Party.

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.

Dodon refuses to appoint the two ministers. PM Filip will ask the CCM to suspend the president

The political spectacle continues. President Igor Dodon sent a letter to Prime Minister Pavel Philip informing him that he did not accept to nominate the two candidates for the positions of Minister of Health, Labor and Social Protection (Silvia Radu), as well as agriculture and food industry (Nicolae Ciubuc), proposed by the Democratic Party.

“I think everyone has to deal with what they’re better at. One needs to understand the difference between paracetamol and aspirin,” the head of state said.

Moreover, Igor Dodon believes that this is done in order to launch these candidates in the election campaign later on.

In reply, Prime Minister Pavel Filip said that President Igor Dodon’s refusal to accept the two proposed ministers is a new violation of the Constitution.

“We will address the Constitutional Court to call for a solution to this institutional blockage that the head of state is trying to provoke,” the prime minister declared.
