The Constitutional Court (CC) endorsed the bill to amend and supplement the Constitution so as to enshrine the European course in it that was submitted by 36 MPs, IPN reports.
The Court’s president Tudor Pantaru on December 11 said the CC reminded that Moldova’s aspirations to establish political, economic and cultural relations in other areas of common interest with the European countries and the orientation to the European space of shared democratic values were stipulated in the state foundation act – the Declaration of Independence.
“The Court held that, regardless of the result of the examination of these amendments, the orientation to the European space of democratic values is a principle with constitutional value,” stated Tudor Pantaru.
Based on the aforementioned, the Court ruled that the bill to amend and supplement the Constitution so as to enshrine the European course in it was presented by the authorized subject and does not violate the revision limits imposed by the constitutional provisions.
The bill can be adopted after at least six months of the presentation of the Constitution amendment proposal. The appraisal is definitive and cannot be appealed.
The procedure for amending the Constitution of the Republic of Moldova was initiated by the Democratic Party.
