Moldovan President Maia Sandu announced her intention to sign a decree on early dissolution of the parliament, Moldpres reports on Thursday, April 15.
Thus, she commented on the decision of the Constitutional Court of Moldova to dissolve the parliament, which today stated that all conditions were met for this.
“Soon I will sign a decree dissolving parliament and calling early elections. <...> Early elections should be organized as soon as possible, but it is necessary to take into account the epidemiological situation, ”Sandu said at the briefing.
On March 29, Sandu went to court with a similar initiative. In her opinion, all the legal conditions for this were met, but both attempts to dissolve the government failed.
Earlier, the Constitutional Court of the country recognized as legitimate the nomination of the leader of the Action and Solidarity party, Igor Grosu, as a candidate for the post of prime minister of the republic. Manole clarified that the decision is final and not subject to appeal.
The parliamentary majority also proposed the candidacy of the Moldovan Ambassador to Russia, Vladimir Golovatyuk, for the post of prime minister. In turn, Sandu refused to discuss it.
In December 2020, Moldovan Prime Minister Ion Chicu resigned to allow early parliamentary elections in the country.
In January, Maia Sandu announced that the former Minister of Finance of Moldova Natalia Gavrilitsa, who is the vice-chairman of the Action and Solidarity party created by Sandu, has been appointed as a candidate for prime minister. The country’s parliament refused to support this appointment. On February 11, the Socialist Party and the parliamentary group Pentru Moldova formed a parliamentary majority for the nomination of ex-finance minister Marianna Durlesteanu as prime minister.
