The Parliament’s representative to the Constitutional Court requested to replace constitutional judge Nicolae Roșca in the meeting centering on the President’s application to ascertain the circumstances that justify the dissolution of Parliament. According to the Parliament’s representative, judge Nicolae Roșca in 2017-2019 served as a lawyer for Maia Sandu and was a member of the party that was headed by the President, IPN reports.
“Subsidiary to these circumstances, President Sandu, holding earlier the post of Prime Minister, took part in his appointment as a constitutional judge. For these reasons, we ask the High Court to examine and accept the replacement request,” said the Parliament’s representative.
The request was formulated after President Maia Sandu stated her position. CC president Domnica Manole said the replacement request should have been made earlier as, at the application examination stage, this request cannot be accepted.
