The Socialist Party and the ACUM bloc are available to enter into further negotiations this weekend regarding the initiative of Sandu Government’s assumption of responsibility for amending the Prosecutor's Law. Alexandru Slusari, Deputy Speaker of the Parliament, PPDA MP, and Grigore Novac, Socialist MP, have announced this.
The Socialist MP claims that the following scenario is possible: if the Sandu Government withdraws its assumption of responsibility initiative, the PSRM withdraws its censure motion. "This is real and we can sit down at the negotiating table and begin the justice reform. Thus, we are ready to offer help, tips," said Novac on " Glavnoe " show, TVC21.
The Socialist maintains that, after the eventual fall of the Government, the PSRM will propose to the ACUM bloc a new collaboration, in a new form.
Alexandru Slusari argues that snap election was discussed in the context in which the ballot represented a price to pay for the judiciary reform. "If this is a price to pay for the justice reform and there is no other solution, we are ready to go for any option and I believe that this position will be supported by all the members of the bloc. We perfectly understand, after two election campaigns in a single year, what snap elections mean. We do not want elections; we want the justice reform. We weren’t the ones that submitted the censure motion, we will not vote with the Democrats for this motion and we are not to be held accountable for the snap elections," contended the PPDA MP.
The MP says that within the ACUM block the possibility of further negotiations with the PSRM after the dismissal of the Government has not been discussed, but Alexandru Slusari maintains that he hardly imagines such a situation. "This censure motion puts the country in a very difficult situation," added Slusari.
Moreover, the deputy Speaker of the Parliament declared that under no circumstances Andrei Năstase would be put forward as a candidate for the position of prosecutor, as speculated by the Socialists.
On Friday, November 8, the Socialist Party filed a censure motion in Parliament as a result of the Government’s assuming of responsibility for amending the Prosecutor's Law.
