The political processes of the last few days were tense, but not fatal for the ruling coalition, wrote the President of the Republic of Moldova, Igor Dodon, on Facebook, after the socialists submitted the censorship motion. The head of state said that "there is enough space and time for the unconstitutional initiative to be withdrawn". He added that "the ACUM bloc still has room for reflections. It needs to understand that the General Prosecutor cannot be politically subordinated and that the ruling coalition should not be sacrificed on the altar of personal ambitions".
According to the president, "citizens don't expect confrontation of ambitions and interests from the government, but concrete results in the field of the economy, in the social sector and in regard to promoting efficient, fair and coherent reforms in order to establish the rule of law". "I urge all the parliamentary groups of the ruling coalition to be calm, thoughtful and lucid during this tense period. Please don't to set the house on fire out of anger" wrote Igor Dodon.
The head of state said that "a reasonable agreement can still be reached in order to get out of the deadlock and to avoid the collapse of the parliamentary majority and the triggering of snap elections". "Show political acumen and don't be rigid about promoting personal projects. First of all, respect the Constitution", the president called.
The Socialist Party submitted a motion of censure on Friday, November 8, following the government's assumption of responsibility for amending the Law on the Prosecutor's Office. The Permanent Bureau will meet within the next three days in order to decide when the next plenary session will be held, then the motion will be examined.
