The “European aspirations” now getting closer to being included in the Moldovan Constitution

The Government of Moldova endorsed the legislative initiative for completing the Constitution by highlighting the European integration aspirations of the country and promoting the orientation of the Republic of Moldova towards the European democratic values.

On 30 January 2018, the Parliamentary Committee on National Security, Defense and Public Order has examined and endorsed the draft of the Constitution of the Republic of Moldova with the provisions establishing the European integration vector. However, Igor Dodon calls it an “act contrary to the will of the people” and announces that, as President of the country, he will block the realization of this initiative “using all legal means for this purpose”.

Moldova’s relations with the European Union were launched with the signing on 28 November 1994 of the Partnership and Cooperation Agreement.

Subsequently, the National Program for Implementation of the Republic of Moldova – European Union Action Plan on the liberalization of the visa regime was approved. On June 28, 2014, the Association Agreement with the European Union was signed.

The procedure for accession of the Republic of Moldova to the constituent treaties of the European Union will be determined by the Parliament by the organic law.

The themes for drafting and promoting the draft law constituted the Constitutional Court’s Decision no. 24 of 9 October 2014.

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.
