Igor Dodon after his early return from the Russian Federation: “Everything will be fine”

Published

In the context that the term of the formation of a parliamentary majority is expiring, but also in the context in which the parties have not yet reached a compromise, the head of state claims that there are still chances that early elections will be avoided, writes ZdG.

“In the next two days, we will have a lot of work to do and so there is a chance the early elections will be avoided. Everything will be fine… “, wrote Igor Dodon.

At the same time, the head of state said that the speaker will be elected on Saturday, and work “in another regime” will begin on Monday.

Two weeks ago, President Igor Dodon filed a petition to the Constitutional Court in order to find out when the three months expire (months in which parties that have access to Parliament can create a parliamentary majority). However, during this time, the Court did not expose itself to this issue and there is no information on the date on which the President’s referral is being considered on the institution’s website.

Today, on June 7, the Socialist Party will convene the session of the Republican Council of the party, in order to analyze the decisions of the Bloc ‘ACUM’, but also the proposals of the Democratic Party.

Maia Sandu asks the magistrates of the Moldovan Constitutional Court to submit their resignation letters

Published

on

PM Maia Sandu was disturbed by the communiqué issued by the Constitutional Court. The report issued by the CC said that the reason for the annulment of the decisions taken on 7-9 June is “the situation in the Republic of Moldova, especially the announcement of the transfer of power to the Government of Sandu and the coalition formed in the Parliament Republic of Moldova”. Note that three of the six magistrates of the Constitutional Court come from the Democratic Party.

“The judges of the Constitutional Court continue their delirium, nationally and internationally shaming the institution they represent. In essence, the Court, rather than recognizing that it participated in the desperate attempt of the Democratic Party to maintain its power unlawfully, justifies its decision only by the fact that this is the situation at present in the Republic of Moldova. I call this approach inappropriate from the perspective of respect for the Supreme State Law. The Constitutional Court must adopt acts in accordance with the provisions of the letter and spirit of the Constitution, and not based on the decisions and behavior of the political actors in the country. At the same time, I ask the judges of the Court to submit their resignations immediately if they still have a little honor and respect for the Constitution of the Republic of Moldova and the citizens of this country,” says Maia Sandu.

Romanian Judge Cristi Danileţ, a former member of the Superior Council of Magistracy in Romania, claims that the decision of the Constitutional Court on the cancellation of the judgments issued on 7-9 June is legally unprecedented.

Previously, the Constitutional Court ruled by Plahotniuc, declared unconstitutional the election of the leadership of the Moldovan Parliament and the vote of the new Government, and later instituted the interim president, after having previously decided that the deadline for a new government to vote was 7 June 2019, not June 9, as previously mentioned in the public space. These decisions have given rise to a number of criticisms and, at the request of the Secretary General of the Council of Europe, Thorbjorn Jagland, the Venice Commission was due to comment on the decisions taken by the CC next week.

According to Cebotari, DPM’s decision is a clear signal that the Democratic Party no longer holds power in the country.

“However, our decision will not solve the constitutional blockade,” Cebotari said.

“Regardless of what solutions will be found, as long as we have the decisions of the CC in place, the Government that will be installed will operate illegally, and the officials of the institutions will not be legally able to execute the decisions of such a Government and will be in a situation of legal risk. That is why final elections will be reached, as it’s the only way to solve the crisis created by the binomial Socialist Party–’ACUM’ bloc legally and completely,” finalized the DPM vice-president.

Vladimir Cebotari said that the next move on behalf of the DPM should be expected. However, it might be way too early to call it good news just yet.

Two days ago, the leaders of the bloc ‘ACUM’ Maia Sandu and Andrei Nastase asked the Moldovan citizens to come to Parliament for the  “march of the people” on Sunday, June 16th. President Igor Dodon, too, called on the country’s citizens and his supporters to participate in the march, in support of the new government.

Maia Sandu warned that “the Plahotniuc regime will do everything in its power to prevent citizens from coming to the march of the people. They will try to stop public transport, threaten drivers, block the streets.”

“Prepare yourself! Come early, come to your relatives’s place and stay overnight in town. Offer car seats to those who wish, but don’t have the possibility to join. They stop the cars? We walk! They will hear our every step and see that Moldova doesn’t belong to them, but to the people and children of Moldova,” said Maia Sandu at the press conference.

She addressed all police officers who refuse to obey to Plahotniuc’s orders as well as those responsible for national security and citizens to maintain public order and ensure that no citizen of this country would suffer.

Will Plahotniuc’s remaining army find ways to prevent the event from happening? How many of Moldova’s remaining people will attend the rally? That’s for us to find out on the coming Sunday.

Cristina Balan, the Moldovan ambassador to the US and former DPM vice-president, is ignoring new MFA’s recall for consultations in Chisinau

Moldovan Ambassador to the US Cristina Balan ignored the order of the new Moldovan Foreign Minister in the Government of Maia Sandu, Nicu Popescu, in which she was asked to present herself no later than today, June 14, 2019, at 3 pm, for consultations in Chisinau.

According to Nicu Popescu, this confirmed that Cristina Balan chose to execute the diplomacy of Plahotniuc’s Democratic Party, instead of the state’s diplomacy.

“I reiterated to the US authorities that from now on, all the steps taken by Balan are made on her own account, and do not reflect in any way the position of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration of the Republic of Moldova”, claims Nicu Popescu.

He mentioned that he has decided to submit to the Government of the Republic of Moldova the proposal to dismiss Mrs. Cristina Balan from the position of ambassador of the Republic of Moldova to the United States of America.

Cristina Balan is the former vice-president of PDM, where she was responsible for the DPM’s foreign affairs management. Oligarch Vlad Plahotniuc was elected to this position on May 8, 2018.
