Mihai Popșoi, PAS group MP, ACUM bloc, became the chairman of the Inquiry Commission for the elucidation of the factual and legal circumstances regarding the unconstitutional coup attempt of the Democratic Party committed via the Constitutional Court and the General Prosecutor's Office. Vasile Bolea, PSRM group MP, was named deputy chair of the commission.
The change in the commission management was triggered by the election of Vladimir Țurcan, the former chairman of the commission, as Constitutional Court chair. During the Parliament meeting, the MPs took note of the resignations of the MPs Vladimir Turcan and Victor Gaiciuc and declared their seats vacant.
When the new commission management appointment proposal was put forward, PDM MP Sergiu Sîrbu raised objections regarding a possible conflict of interest of some members, who are also witnesses in the case opened by the Prosecutor's Office. The rapporteur Sergiu Litvinenco denied any conflict of interest.
Sergiu Sîrbu added that this case and the existence of the commission are an attempt to intimidate the opposition and proposed an amendment to change the name of the commission to "the commission for elucidating the circumstances in which the events of June 7-14 occurred". The President of the Parliament, Zinaida Greceanîi, rejected the Democrat's proposal, stating that the purpose of the meeting is to change the leadership of the commission, not to modify the commission itself.
