The electoral bloc ACUM refused the socialists’ invitation to discussions. The PSRM reaction

Published

on

The electoral bloc ACUM rejected the invitation to dialogue received from the Party of Socialists of the Republic of Moldova (PSRM). At a press conference, the leaders of the bloc, Maia Sandu and Andrei Nastase, reiterated their commitment of not making any alliances with the Democratic Party of Moldova (DPM), the PSRM and the “Șor” Party.

“We have assumed, with maximum responsibility, a single partnership – that with the Moldovan citizens. The DPM and the PSRM are further disguising their alliance that has been established for years. We are waiting to see the outcome of the affair between Plahotniuc and Dodon who want to use the electoral bloc ACUM in an obscure coalition,” declared Andrei Năstase.

At the same time, the electoral bloc ACUM proposed several bills “for the elimination of the oligarchy in the state”, asking all members of the future Parliament “who care about the citizens of the Republic of Moldova” to vote on them during the first meetings of the Parliament.
The proposed bills include the adoption of the Parliament Declaration on the captured character of the state institutions, the adjustment of the normative framework necessary for the dismissal of the General Prosecutor, of the head of Information and Security Service (ISS), as well as of the National Anti-corruption Center (NAC), of the members of the Central Electoral Comission (CEC) and of some other key institutions’ figures.

Additionally, the cancellation of the mixed electoral system, the adoption of the Magnitsky Law, and the creation of 3 parliamentary committees for investiating the Great Bank Robbery investigation, the consequences of implementing the law on capital amnesty, and the money laundering schemes LANDROMAT were proposed.

Năstase also declared that the bills proposed by ACUM will be discussed in Parliament, not at the head offices of political parties.

After the official refusal of the bloc ACUM, the PSRM representative, Ion Ceban, announced that a new meeting of the party will be organized in order to decide the PSRM next actions. He declared that the Socialists will announce their political agenda, most probably, after the first session of the newly formed Parliament. “Until that moment, we will evaluate the most appropriate scenarios and solutions that are required in the current situation,” said Ion Ceban.

The Socialists qualified the decision of the ACUM as an irresponsible one, accusing them of adopting the “ostrich policy”. “They have misled their own voters, to whom they promised to relaunch the ruling elite and the country’s economy,” claimed Ceban.

Igor Boțan, the executive director of the Association for Participatory Democracy ADEPT, considers that the proposed bills by the bloc ACUM is a counteroffer for the DPM, rather than for the PSRM. According to him, a political statement between parties is needed before voting on the proposed bills in the Parliament, as IPN reports.

Romanian historian A. Gosu about the Moldovan crisis: “Russia has found itself on the same side of the table as Americans and Europeans”

On Friday, the Interim Government of Chisinau, formed by oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc’s Democratic Party, gave up the government invested by Parliament, led by Maia Sandu. The formation led by Vladimir Plahotniuc called for early elections and argued that the current executive is illegal, citing precisely the decisions of the Constitutional Court last week, which, not long ago, were canceled.

Shortly after the Democratic Party announced it was withdrawing from the government, several private planes and charters for Moscow, Odessa, and London (with DPM members in them) took off from the Chisinau airport, writes Digi24.

Moldova’s Prime Minister, Maia Sandu, promised, in the first statement after the Democratic Party left, that all people guilty of the country’s crisis all these years (led by Plahotniuc) will be punished according to law.

Out of fear, the main criminal left the country “for a few days”. According to a press release, the reason is to see his family. His party’s members did not name the country in which Plahotniuc left. However, it is a well-known fact that Plahotniuc has two children living in Switzerland, where the leader of the DPM also owns a villa on the shores of Lake Geneva.

Plahotniuc stole $560,000,000 from the Russian banks.

Indeed, Moscow has long ago announced charges against Plahotniuc (February): Plahotniuc has organized an international criminal group with another businessman (Veaceslav Platon) in order to withdraw the money illegally. The last washed tranche – the famous Moldovan “laundromat” – was somewhere between 23,000,000,000 USD. This money – some of them – went to Romania, Latvia, England, the final destination of money being Western banks and the United States.

Plahotniuc got in trouble after he was involved in wreckage between various criminal groups close to Moscow’s power circles. He helped – including through Romania – to launder billions of dollars and ended the friendship with Russia, explained to Digi24 Armand Goşu, a former Soviet space expert.

Russia will internationally trace oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc, who in the meantime, escaped the country. The information was confirmed by the Deputy Prime Minister of Moscow, according to statements made by one of the ‘ACUM’ bloc leaders, Andrei Nastase. In the name of the Democratic Party leader, there is a criminal case opened by Russian investigators.

“Oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc could not stand alone in front of this” monstrous ‘coalition’,” says Gosu.

For the first time since the Crimean crisis, Russia has found itself on the same side of the table as Americans and Europeans.

Also because of Plahotniuc, on the other hand, Putin is now conquering the hearts and minds of Moldovans – an essential battle in today’s hybrid war – in which Romania lost, adds historian Armand Gosu.

Plahotniuc, with support from Bucharest, managed, in a fairly good manner, to manipulate foreign embassies for years and Western chancelleries, which gave them the illusion that Chisinau is a pro-Western regime.
