Dodon explains reasons for convening his “Great National Assembly”

President Igor Dodon says he has the right to convene a “Great National Assembly” if the ruling Democratic Party “continues to worsen the situation in the Republic of Moldova.” The statement was made by the head of state during the show “In PROfunzime” from the TV channel PRO TV Chisinau, quoted by IPN.

Igor Dodon referred to two situations in which he could convene the so-called Great National Assembly: “If they try to unleash a military conflict on the Dniester – a war that we do not need, or if they try to dismiss the president who was elected people. Then, we reserve the right to convene the Great National Assembly, where citizens will be asked to decide what we have to do next.”

“PDM wants destabilization because it would justify its lack of results. Schools are closing, look what’s going on with hospitals, prices, medicines, etc. They need to destabilize themselves, and they keep challenging us, but we will act very calmly”, says Dodon.

Reminder: Dodon announced mass protests on 24 September, when the Republican consultative referendum, initiated by the head of state, was supposed to be held.

BREAKING: CCM has TEMPORARILY suspended Dodon’s presidency. Candu and Filip will either appoint or take over the interim

The Constitutional Court of the Republic of Moldova decided to temporarily suspend Igor Dodon’s presidency.

The Constitutional Court ruled that the President’s refusal constituted the temporary impossibility of exercising the office by establishing the interim. Thus, the High Court declared that the second refusal of President Dodon to appoint Eugen Sturza to the office of minister will lead to the impossibility of him exercising the presidential functions. The interim will thus be provided either by the President of the Parliament, or the Prime Minister.

Reminder: CCM has temporarily suspended Igor Dodon’s presidency after he has repeatedly refused to appoint the candidate, Eugen Sturza, for the ruling coalition, as Defense Minister.

The Republic of Moldova has asked the European partners to examine the possibility of increasing tariff quotas for a range of goods and products exported to the EU, as well as operating changes to the list of products subject to an anti-circumvention mechanism by increasing quotas for wheat, barley, corn, ethyl alcohol.

According to Deschide.MD, The request was made at the meeting of the Moldovan-EU Association Committee, in the Trade Configuration, which took place in Chisinau, is mentioned in a press release of the Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure.
