Vlad Plahotniuc: We are happy for the electoral success of our partners from Romania, PSD

Vice-President of the Democratic Party of Moldova, Vlad Plahotniuc, posted a message on congratulating the Social-Democratic Party of Romania on the massive win in the Parliamentary elections.

“We are happy for the electoral success of our political friends and partners in Romania.
The good result of PSD constitutes a proof that citizens appreciate the social-democratic ideas and reforms.
I wish Romania had political balance and stability, in order to continually ensure an economic and social progress”
, posted the “executive coordinator” of the governing coalition on his Facebook page.

Some think that the leadership of the Democratic Party would be soon 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”, similar to the one in Romania.

Plahotniuc’s close relation with the Social-Democratic Party of Romania has become public in 2014, when his Democratic Party declared support for Victor Ponta in the Presidential elections. There were even some reported frauds facilitated by the Moldovan Democrats, such as mass transportation and bribing of voters, at the Presidential elections in 2014 and the recent Parliamentary elections from December 11th 2016.

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.

Filip on the Eastern Partnership Summit in November: It will be a crucial one

The Eastern Partnership Summit, scheduled for November in Brussels, will be a crucial moment not only for the future of Eastern European countries but also for the future of the whole of Europe. Moreover, the place of the Republic of Moldova is in the European family, our aspirations must be therefore encouraged and welcomed in the official statements. This is the opinion of the Prime Minister of Moldova, Pavel Filip, which is found in an editorial for Euronews.

The prime minister believes that if pro-Russian socialists came to power, they would abandon their intention of European integration and so a positive signal from Europe to Moldova would be very much appreciated.

“The sanctioning of our constitution’s external strategic vector is, we believe, an adequate response to those who question our intentions, and the Eastern Partnership Summit would strengthen this option. The EU is a symbiosis of democracy, the rule of law, prosperity and development, and our major task is to prove to Moldovan citizens that it can not be achieved without one another. Decisions are important not only for the eastern countries but also for the future of the EU,” says Pavel Filip.

“At the same time, amid reconfigurations, progress and national sensitivities, we argue that the European integration door should be kept open for those who meet the standards. Such an approach would serve both the EU’s goals and ours. We believe in the power of the Eastern Partnership Summit to bring together clear strategic directions and pragmatic ideas, to enhance cooperation and to make it more effective. The principles behind the creation of the EaP should only be reinforced.” declared Filip at the speech’s end.

PAS to PDM: “Schools are shutting down because people are leaving a corrupt country”

PDM leader Vlad Plahotniuc came with an ironic reaction to PAS president Maia Sandu, who filed a complaint with the Prosecutor General’s Office against the leader of PDM.

Reminder: On September 21, PAS lodged a complaint with the Prosecutor’s Office in which he demanded the criminal prosecution of the citizen Plahotniuc Vladimir for committing the crime of usurpation of state power.

“If Maia Sandu is watching us right now, I’m announcing her that I’ve also taken over today’s colleagues’ attention at the party meeting. Now she’ll have new evidence to play the political denunciations,” Vlad Plahotniuc ironically declared in the weekly briefing of the party.

“Coincidentally, the topic on the agenda today is Education, the serious problems that are happening because of the closing of schools,” said PDM chairman, further announcing that the ruling party proposed a moratorium on the closure of schools in the country.

Plahotniuc also made the impression of blame on the previous government, which has suffered multiple failures, at which the Action and Solidarity Party said that a man who has become the symbol of corruption, injustice, suffocating the state, democracy and human rights has no moral quality to appreciate change and reform.

“No matter how much the less-fated citizen would want to steal the future of the country, he will not succeed. The man who manipulates and disinforms infinitely does not have the moral right to talk about education,” says the party’s message.

The PAS noted that, regretfully, the educational system has serious problems, and this is because the country was seized by a band of thieves who dealt with their own interest and depleted the state.

“Schools are shutting down because people are leaving a corrupt country. Schools will open when corruption is closed,” declared PAS.
