The Democratic Party’s refusal to have consultations with incumbent President Igor Dodon for avoiding a political crisis is normal as the PDM no longer forms part of the government coalition, said MP Nicolae Ciubuc, who noted that the country is on the edge of a precipice and needs concrete solutions to current problems, which can be identified as a result of consultations on the parliamentary platform with all the authentic parties, IPN reports.

“We do not pursue another goal. The goal is to reach a compromise by inviting all the authentic parliamentary parties, of the current legislature, to a dialogue so as to try and find solutions to the profound crisis that is caused primarily by the pandemic, the economic crisis, the crisis in agriculture. We are practically in a collapse, if we can say so, given the current conditions. The budgetary fiscal policy hasn’t been yet approved. We do not yet have the budget for next year. On the other hand, we know what size has the budget deficit. On the other hand, we see the tendencies of particular political forces that insist on inducing snap parliamentary elections,” Nicolae Ciubuc stated in the program “Emphasis on Today” on TVR Moldova channel.

PAS MP Sergiu Litvinenco said the parliamentary groups can be consulted by the President in two cases that haven’t occurred now.

“I said from the start that from legal viewpoint, under the constitutional provisions, the President invites the parliamentary groups to consultations in two cases: if a candidate for Prime Minister is to be identified, and this is not the case, and when constitutional circumstances for dissolving Parliament appear. The Constitution provides that before signing the dissolution decree, the President invites the groups to consultations,” stated Sergiu Litvinenco.

On November 16, Igor Dodon announced that he decided to initiate discussions with the parliamentary groups for identifying solutions to the situation created in the country. After he managed to have consultations only with the Socialist parliamentary groups, the incumbent President said he anticipated such a reaction and his initiative was a test for the parliamentary groups.
