Socialist MP Grigore Novac said the Socialist group in the April 23 sitting of Parliament will propose adopting a statement on the non-recognition of the Constitutional Court’s decision allowing for the dissolution of Parliament. The representatives of the PAS and PPPDA noted they will not support such a statement that they consider political and without any legal effect, IPN reports.
Grigore Novac said the Socialist MPs will also suggest adopting a statement by which they will seek the resignation of the three CC judges who decided that there are reasons for the current legislature to be dissolved.
“We bank on the support of all those who are against the usurpation of power in the state and the political subduing of the Constitutional Court. The Court should ensure the observance of the Constitution and predictability. We, the MPs, leave, but the CC decision will produce effects in time,” Grigore Novac stated in the talk show “In Depth” on ProTV channel.
PAS leader Igor Grosu replied the PSRM’s initiative is null and void and urged the Socialists not to waste time and to concentrate on the preparations for the snap parliamentary elections.
“What this PSRM-Shor coalition intends to do is a political act without legal consequences. The Court’s decision is perfectly legal. It did nothing but ascertain the conditions for dissolving Parliament. This declaration of the majority coalition will not have any repercussion for the Court’s decision. The PSRM’s bills show they accepted the situation and are getting ready for the election campaign,” said the acting president of the PAS Igor Grosu.
The leader of the PPPDA Andrei Năstase said their party’s parliamentary group will not vote for such a statement. The CC judgment cannot be challenged.
“We always pleaded for snap elections, but proposed a way and a responsible roadmap that can resolve the pandemic crisis in time. The Court’s decision is clear and we should prepare for snap elections. It’s normal not to vote for such a statement as we do not oppose the people’s will,” stated the politician.
On April 15, the Constitutional Court decided that there are conditions that justify the dissolution of Parliament and the organization of snap elections. The President is to sign a dissolution decree and to call snap elections. However, the legislative body cannot be dissolved during the state of emergency that is in force in Moldova until May 30.
