The Parliament’s decision to declare a state of emergency until May 30 is a political game. According to the leader of the PDM Pavel Filip, the declaring of the state of emergency in the absence of a set of harsh restrictions cannot have the expected result. For their part, the MPs of the Shor Party said the Government did nothing but implement the recommendation formulated by President Maia Sandu after the meeting of the Supreme Security Council, IPN reports.
The PAS MPs said the Government is fully unprepared for the two-month state of emergency. There is no clear set of restrictions and funds for supposing the citizens and the companies that will be affected by the state of emergency weren’t planned.
“We proposed very pertinent amendments, like creating a common assistance center and an electronic database for the people who want to be vaccinated to know exactly when they can get vaccinated and where vaccination centers were opened. Fortunately, the Government undertook to examine these amendment, but in general it was a simulation,” PAS MP Vladimir Bolea stated in the talk show “Black Box” on TV8 channel.
The Democrats said we are witnessing a struggle for power between Igor Dodon and Maia Sandu and the pandemic crisis is not the top priority of the two politicians.
“These are political games. I think the decisions are taken not by the Government, but by the party and are put into practice very swiftly. If a lockdown is not ordered, this state of emergency is useless. No one cares about the health of the people. We are witnessing a struggle between two politicians, Maia Sandu and Igor Dodon,” said Democratic MP Pavel Filip.
The PPPDA MPs noted the President’s refusal to nominate Andrei Năstase for premiership will cost the country a lot.
“We proposed an anti-crisis Government with very clear powers. If it had been accepted, we wouldn’t have had this circus in Parliament and would have been able to amend the budget law. We failed to obtain € 60 million from Romania and can fail to get €500 million from the IMF,” said PPPDA MP Vasile Năstase.
The MPs of the Shor Party said the effects of the state of emergency will be visible in two-three weeks and the citizens in the period must obey the measures imposed by the authorities.
‘The Government proposed declaring a state of emergency after President Sandu formulated a similar recommendation. We must wait for a period of at least two-three weeks to see results,” said Shor Party MP Marina Tauber.
The state of emergency was declared for the period between April 1 and May 30. The document was adopted by the votes of the Socialist MPs and the For Moldova parliamentary platform that includes the MPs of the Shor Party.
