The leader of the Party “Dignity and Truth Platform” (PPPDA) Andrei Năstase said his party struggles not for the post of Prime Minister, but for ensuring a state of normality and stability in Moldova. According to Năstase, the investing of a Government supported by the pro-European forces in Parliament would be the best alternative to an executive supported by the PSRM-Shor majority that will never obtain foreign financial support, IPN reports.

The politician said the Constitutional Court’s decision concerning the powers of the interim Government was predictable. Such requisitions as that filed by President Sandu affect the country’s image before the foreign diplomats residing in Moldova.

”I addressed the ambassadors of the European states to come with the experience and expertise of the states they represent as to see how the crises are solved in the European states. No European country can allow chaos, anarchy in times of a pandemic,” Andrei Năstase stated in the talk show “Moldova Live” on Moldova 1 channel.  

The politician said that if a Government led by him is voted in, his key priorities will be the farmers’ problem, the indexation of pensions and particularly the health crisis given that the number of infections with SARS-COV-2 is going up.  

“There are heartless politicians. You cannot remain indifferent when there are 1,800 infections during a day. The PPPDA struggles not for the post of Prime Ministry or for a Government of the party. It struggles for normality, for the people’s health, food, economic safety,” stated Andrei Năstase.

He noted the President should obey the Constitution and should initiate consultations with the parliamentary groups so as to identify a candidate for Prime Minister.

“It’s good that Misses President has consultations with civil society, opinion leaders, journalists, but the Constitution obliges her to have consultations with the parliamentary groups,” said the politician.

On March 4, Andrei Năstase sent a letter to all the European institutions and ambassadors of European states accredited to Moldova by which he asks them to become involved by providing expertise so that the political deadlock in Moldova could be broken.
