President Dodon refuses to approve 7 new Ministers, Democrats ask Constitutional Court for suspension, interim appointing

Published

On December 28th, President Igor Dodon refused for the second time the approval of the seven new ministers appointed by the Democratic Party. His veto was motivated by the lack of integrity declarations of the newly appointed officials.

As a result, a group of MPs from the Parliament’s juridical commission submitted a complaint to the Constitutional Court of Moldova asking to examine the circumstances of imposing an interim President to appoint the respective Ministers. According to the Moldovan Constitution, a President can reject a law or a decree from the Government only once with a motivation.

“We requested the High Court to solve this institutional blockade generated by the deliberate refusal of the President to repeatedly appoint some members of the Government. We count on that the complaint will be examined urgently”, declared the Democrat MP Sergiu Sîrbu.

In October 2017, the Court ruled that Dodon could not exercise his rights after vetoing the appointing of the Defense Minister Eugen Sturza. Thus, the Parliament speaker Andrian Candu, as an interim President for some hours, could appoint Sturza.

“The year 2018 is of crucial importance to our countries. In the Russian Federation, elections will be held for the position of president of the country. I wished great luck to Mr. Putin in this coming election. I consider him a remarkable leader in the history of the Russian Federation that has turned his country into a state of great world power,” declared Dodon.

Andrian Candu: Pavel Filip to repeatedly propose the new Government candidatures to President Dodon

Published

on

“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.
