Marian Lupu leaves position of president of the Democratic Party of Moldova

On December 10th, Marian Lupu announced his resignation from the position of president of the Democratic Party of Moldova at the session of the Political Council of the party.


Lupu declared that he would not compete for the position of party president at the Congress of the Democrats on December 24th. He would still remain “beside PDM” and would still involve in new development projects of the party.

Marian Lupu, previously speaker of two Parliament assemblies, had been a candidate in the recent Presidential elections, but retreated from the race two three days before the election day to support Action and Solidarity Party’s Maia Sandu.

Newsmaker.md‘s sources think that the leadership of the Democratic Party would be taken by the oligarch Vlad Plahotniuc, who de-facto controls the party, and even the name of the party might change to the “Social-Democratic Party”.

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
