The Central Election Commission (CEC) took note of the vacancy of a number of seats of MP that were allotted to the Party of Action and Solidarity. In accordance with the legal provisions, the Commission will ask the Constitutional Court to validate the seats of MPs of the substitute candidates on the PAS lists, IPN reports.
This way, CEC will suggest validating the seats of substitute candidates Ana Calinici, Evghenia Cojocari, Boris Popa, Ana Oglinda and Dorel Iurcu.
The five seats remained vacant after Natalia Gavrilița was appointed as Prime Minister, Andrei Spînu as Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Infrastructure and Regional Development, Dumitru Budianschi as Minister of Finance, Sergiu Litvinenco as Minister of Justice, while Rosian Vasiloi as head of the General Border Police Inspectorate.
The seat of MP is incompatible with office of President of the Republic of Moldova, member of the Cabinet, ombudsperson and local elected official. The incompatibility also intervenes when any other remunerated posts is held, including in a foreign state or at an international organization, except for teaching and scientific activity performed outside the set program.
