The head of the Socialist parliamentary group Corneliu Furculiță said his party will address the international community if the Constitutional Court takes a decision against the supreme law’s provisions concerning the dissolution of Parliament. The MP considers there are no reasons for dissolving Parliament when there is a candidate for Prime Minister who is supported by a parliamentary majority, IPN reports.
Corneliu Furculiță noted that Zinaida Grechanyi requested the Constitutional Court to take into account the Venice Commission’s opinion on the dissolution of Parliament of the summer of 2019. Then, the experts of the Venice Commission said the legislature cannot be dissolved if there is a majority that is ready to assume governance.
“The Republic of Moldova is a parliamentary state and if the President does not fulfill her constitutional duties, invoking the people’s wish to have snap elections or the electoral promises, a dangerous electoral precedent is set. I do not rule out the possibility that the same situation will exist after the parliamentary elections. The PAS group will not have a majority and will be unable to invest the Government. What will happen then?” Corneliu Furculiță stated in the talk show “Friday with Anatolie Golea” on RTR Moldova channel.
Moreover, the Socialist MP said that if the High Court decides that there are circumstances for dissolving Parliament, the PSRM will ask for international mediation in this case.
“If the decision of the Constitutional Court is not in accordance with the Constitution, and we had such precedents, all the necessary measures will be taken to enforce the law. We will insist that the consultations should no longer be mimicked and a candidate who is supported by the parliamentary majority should be nominated,” noted Corneliu Furculiță.
On April 15, the Constitutional Court will examine President Maia Sandu’s request to ascertain the circumstances for dissolving Parliament given that two attempts to vote in a Government failed.
