Moldova switches to winter time

Moldova will switch to winter time next Sunday, October 28, Prime Minister Pavel Filip announced in a news conference on October 24. An order to inform about this has been already signed, IPN reports.

“It is a matter of national interest. If the conclusion that we should not switch to winter or summer time is reached, we will not do it. Until then, we will do as all the European countries do,” stated the Premier.

This February, the European Parliament voted to end the practice of changing time. The MEPs requested the European Commission to make a detailed assessment of the directive that envisions the switching between summer and winter time and to suggest a revision plan if it’s opportune. A definitive decision hasn’t been yet taken.
