The parliamentary groups are waiting to see the Cabinet and the government program proposed by the Prime Minister designate Natalia Gavrilița so as to decide if they will support the Government led by representatives of the Party of Action and Solidarity or not. The Socialists, who hold a majority of seats in Parliament, said they will decide in the meeting of the National Council whether to give a vote of confidence to the executive led by Natalia Gavrilița or not, IPN reports.
The representatives of the Pro Moldova Party accuse President Sandu of pushing the country towards a large-scale economic crisis by her insistence to trigger snap parliamentary elections at any cost as, in the absence of a fully-fledged Government, foreign loans cannot be raised to cover this year’s huge budget deficit.
“Missis Sandu violates the constitutional norm. The obligation of a President is to make sure that the constitutional norm produces legal effects and the law works. She should not plunge the country into a crisis. The obligation of a President is to contribute to the existence of a functional and responsible Government,” Pro Moldova MP Vlad Cebotari stated in the talk show “Ghețu Asks” on TV8 channel.
In the same program, MP of the Party “Dignity and Truth Platform” Iurie Reniță said the political deadlock can be broken by investing an interim Government that during two-three months could change slightly the situation and would pave the way for free and democratic elections this year.
The Socialists, on whose vote the fate of the Gavrilița Government depends, said that they haven’t yet taken a final decision about the voting in or non-voting in of the new Cabinet. The Socialist MPs will definitely attend the plenary sitting where the government program proposed by Natalia Gavrilița will be debated.
“The Republic of Moldova is hostage to the whims of President Maia Sandu. We, during the Parliament sitting, will put a lot of questions so as to determine the professionalism or non-professionalism of the team created by Missis Gavrilița. In the meeting of the National Council, we will decide whether to vote for this Government or not,” said Socialist MP Grigore Novac.
The representative of the Party of Action and Solidarity noted that the investiture of a new Government, no matter how professional this is, would only put off the snap legislative elections.
“This was the case discussed with Maia Sandu’s Government – that it would work for several months and snap elections would be then triggered. But the Chicu Governor came later and said that it would work until snap elections. This would be the third Government until snap elections. It would be ridiculous already. Telling the people that one more Cabinet will exist until snap elections does not sound credible,” stated MP Dumitru Alaiba.
After the decree to designate a candidate as Prime Minister is signed, this has 15 days to create a team and think up the government program. Later, the candidate asks for a vote of confidence in Parliament. The government is invested by at least 51 votes of MP.
