More powers for the current interim government so that it can negotiate international treaties is risky.
This opinion was expressed by vice-chairman of the parliament, Alexandru Slusari, who stressed that in this way the interim executive body can solve the country’s problems but bear minimal responsibility, agora.md reports.
“I am skeptical about increasing powers of the interim government, with regard to the signing of agreements. Let’s not open Pandora’s Box. We must clearly understand the difference between an empowered government and an interim government. Otherwise, the situation might become even worse. It will be convenient for the interim government to rule the country for a year without bearing responsibility,” Slusari said.
He also added that the risks lie in the limited ability of the parliament to control the interim executive power.
On the other hand, PAS deputy Sergiu Litvinenco ruled out the possibility of the risks voiced by Slusari.
“The notice addressed to the Constitutional Court specifies that all actions will be performed in accordance with the law. The treaties are signed by the government and further submitted to parliament. So, no way for Pandora’s box,” the PAS deputy said.
Alexandru Slusari’s reaction followed after President Maia Sandu sent a request to the Constitutional Court on January 11. Among other things, the head of state noted that the government, even when it resigns, should be able to ensure that the country is governed until appointment of the next cabinet. In particular, the current executive branch should be able to reshuffle, dismiss and appoint high-ranking officials and civil servants under certain conditions, and be able to access funds within certain constitutional limits.
