Moldova Liberal Party tries to initiate a referendum to impeach President Igor Dodon

On January 16th, 10 Liberal members of the Moldovan Parliament announced they initiated a procedure to suspend the President of Moldova, Igor Dodon, and to call a referendum for his dismissal.

The Liberal leader Mihai Ghimpu asks for support from the government coalition MPs, since the initiative needs to be signed by at least 34 deputies, which the Liberal caucus does not have, to be valid.

According to Ghimpu, Dodon violated the Constitution and the Penal Code when congratulating the separatist leader Vadim Krasnoselski on the election as president of the breakaway Transnistria.

“Through this message, he proved that he represents the interests of another state than the Republic of Moldova. We will not accept as chief of state a President who promotes the interests of the Russian Federation. Until now, nobody congratulated or recognized a self-proclaimed president from the left bank of Nistru, not even the Russian Federation. Therefore, we are initiating the procedure to dismiss the president”, declared Ghimpu.

The Democratic Party, which rules the government coalition, answered to the call by asking the Liberal Party to come with details and arguments at the base of the initiate at the coalition meeting. Moreover, the Democrats say they would agree to sign a request to the Constitutional Court to check on the violations of the Constitution.

Dodon’s spokesperson, Ion Ceban, considers the statement of Ghimpu rather “electoral than political” with the aim to restore the minor trust. Ceban stresses that President Igor Dodon is “always ready to come to political court in front of citizens” and ready to repeat his ideas and intentions on the present and future of Moldova.

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.
