Legislative proposals, including those to limit the president powers were hastily and non-transparently adopted on December 3 without following the necessary parliamentary procedures.
In addition, the vote was supported by those involved in corruption and banking fraud in 2014, which is fraught with the risk that the legislation may serve selfish interests. About his informed the statement of the press secretary of the EU foreign policy representative Peter Stano, ipn.md reported.
The statement says that these legislative proposals were introduced just two weeks after the election of a new president in Moldovan. The elections were held with the expectation that the future president would be able to fulfill his functions in accordance with the Constitution and according to which he was elected. Therefore, it is important that any changes in these presidential functions and powers are followed by the necessary legislatively enshrined procedures, including democratic control.
Peter Stano clarified that the European Union expects all decision-makers in the Republic of Moldova, an EU-associated state, to respect the rule of law and guarantee democracy in line with the expectations of the population and the basic principles of the ambitious Association Agreement between the EU and Moldova. “The partnership of the European Union with the Republic of Moldova will continue to be aimed at providing tangible benefits to the citizens of Moldova,” he said.
The PSRM, the Shor Party and the For Moldova group voted several bills on December 3, in an atmosphere of chaos and disorder, including the budget law, fiscal policy for 2021, and the transition of the ISS from the presidency to parliament.
