About the future Socialist Prosecutor General and Prime Minister, the judges that have cheered up and IMF monitoring

IPN Flow Synopsis for November 13, 2019

Dog does not eat dog


Chișinău Court of Appeal suspended the Superior Council of Magistrates ruling, by which the judge of the Supreme Court of Justice Oleg Sternioală was stripped of immunity, taking into account the argument that the CSM meeting of November 4 was illegal, considering that CSM members were dismissed from office on September 27. (Earlier, the CSM issued a reply, specifying that the decision of the Extraordinary Assembly of Judges of September 27 was void.).

Stop dallying with serious things

After the chair of PSRM Zinaida Greceanîi said that the party led by her was ready to form a new parliamentary majority with ACUM Bloc, but with another prime minister, while the ACUM Bloc MPs reiterated that they were ready to support only Maia Sandu for prime minister position, with the current set of ministers and the same reform agenda, the Socialist Party announced that they would support president Igor Dodon’s initiative regarding creating a minority government. Moreover, presidential adviser Ion Chicu, ex-minister of finance, was put forward by Igor Dodon for the position of Prime Minister.

Indeed , the people deserve better

“Despite the unfortunate dismissal of Prime Minister Maia Sandu's Government, the priorities of the United States of America in its bilateral relationship with the Republic of Moldova have not changed.” “Moldovans deserve leaders who will work for the good of the country and will free it from the corruption that has prevented Moldova from reaching its potential,” is mentioned in a Facebook post of the Embassy.

Black on white, nothing to read between the lines

The International Monetary Fund stands ready to support the continuation of the reform process in Republic of Moldova but is also “monitoring the situation closely to assess implications of recent developments for the IMF-supported program and the outlook for external financing.”

Operational Group of Russian Forces in the background?

The Embassy of the Russian Federation in the Republic of Moldova has stated that it is closely monitoring the dynamics of the political process in Moldova and that it "advocates for maintaining internal political stability in the interests of the citizens and rule of law in the Republic of Moldova".

Every man wishes the water to his mill

Chairman of the National Security, Defence and Public Order Committee of the Parliament, Chiril Moţpan believes that “Dodon at any cost wanted control over the Prosecutor General, who would otherwise have initiated (well-grounded!) criminal proceedings and endangered his personal safety, which would have substantially reduced his chance to run for president."
