Igor Dodon comments on decision to suspend him from off

President Igor Dodon said the Constitutional Court’s decision to suspend him from office was taken after he refused to sign a package of anti-popular laws that were adopted by the outgoing parliamentary majority, IPN reports.

In a posting on Facebook, Igor Dodon wrote he refused to promulgate the new broadcasting code that institutes press censorship despite the Constitution’s provisions, according to him, the law to sell the site of the former National Stadium to the U.S. Embassy, the law on the renaming of May 9 as Europe Day, and two laws on the transfer of the General Carabineer Inspectorate under the Premier’s management, which undermines the constitutional duties of the President as the supreme commander of the Armed Forces, as Igor Dodon underlined.

President Dodon said he will not give up and these laws will be repealed after the parliamentary elections, while the Constitutional Court will have a new composition.

The Constitutional Court took the decision on December 10 following a requisition filed by Speaker of Parliament Andrian Candu and Democratic MP Sergiu Sârbu. Now the Speaker or the Premier will issue the decree to promulgate the five invoked laws.
