Published

on

The President of the Moldovan Socialists’ Party (PSRM), Zinaida Greceanîi, agreed with the the President of “United Russia”, Prime-Minister Dmitry Medvedev, to sign a cooperation deal between the two parties.

“Our party has a lot in common with the United Russia party. First of all, we have a common approach to processes of integration in the post-Soviet space. PSRM constantly supports the joining of the Republic of Moldova to the Eurasian Economic Union and the systematical development of this international organization. We support the initiative of the President of the Republic of Moldova, Igor Dodon, to obtain the status of observer in the Eurasian Economic Union”, declared Greceanîi.

Besides signing the agreement between the parties, the leaders decided to intensify the cooperation between the districts of Moldova and regions of the Russian Federation. Moreover, some 100 Moldovan Socialist representatives, deputies, district heads, mayors and counselor would have exchanges of experience with similar structures of the “United Russia” (Edinaya Rossyia) in 2017.

President Igor Dodon shared the declarations of Greceanîi and intentions of his former party, although the law requires him to be out of the activity of any political party.

This is Igor Dodon’s reply after Constitutional Court’s decision that the president can not submit a candidate for the post of PM

Published

President Igor Dodon believes that the election of the Parliament leadership is the only way to overcome the political crisis in the country.

The statement was made for the Russian news agency TASS after the Constitutional Court’s decision that the President of the Republic of Moldova can not submit a candidate to the post of PM in the absence of Parliament’s governing bodies.

“I have mentioned that if until mid-June the governing bodies of the legislature will not be established, I will have to sign the decree of dissolving the Parliament and appointing the date of organizing early parliamentary elections,” warns President Dodon on his Facebook page.

The president stressed that this scenario “is not good” for Moldova, given the risks of stopping investment projects in infrastructure, the emergence of risks in the budgetary system, postponing the creation of the Government and conducting local elections.

We recall that according to the decision of the CC, the impossibility of meeting the Parliament because of the lack of the organ convening it implies the impossibility of the President of the Republic of Moldova to appoint a candidate for the post of PM.

Iulia Petuhova refused to provide information about the countries from which the files were filed, but stated that they wanted to obtain the citizenship in order to benefit from the investment opportunities offered by our country and to develop their business in Moldova.

Please note that the program to obtain citizenship in return for investment was approved in 2018 by the Government. The authorities then said they hoped to attract at least €1,300,000 over the next 5 years.

According to the program, a foreign investor can acquire the citizenship of Moldova if he transfers at least €100,000 or €250,000 in a strategic business area to the Sustainable Development Fund. The program is promoted by an international consortium selected in an open competition. The consortium includes MIC Holding LLC, Henley & Partners Holdings Ltd, Henley & Partners Government Services Ltd, and Henley & Partners International Ltd.

The authorities have promised that Moldova’s citizenship through investments will only be granted to applicants who “meet the best international standards”.

“These Moldovan citizens of the Republic of Moldova will certainly not be EU citizens because they have no reason to invest in a corrupted economy.” – Maia Sandu

Reminder: The law was criticized by the MPs of the ACUM opposition bloc that declared they pose major risks to state security and citizens’ safety. Previously, Maia Sandu said that Moldovan citizens of the Republic of Moldova will certainly not be EU citizens because they have no reason to invest in a corrupted economy.
