The Our Party leader, Renato Usatii, said that forming the parliamentary majority would now be difficult, since “the Russians are against the Dodon-Shor coalition, and someone from abroad have also forbidden Nastase to join the coalition.”
“Igor Dodon was in Moscow on Saturday, where he was clearly told, “If you keep the coalition with Shor in any form, then you will have a severe headache. Therefore, now Igor Dodon needs to give up Shor. As for the unofficial coalition with Nastase, the majority needs someone else. Although, Nastase was also told that they would make him not an astronaut, but a tanker, so he called Dodon yesterday and said that there would be no “weddings”, Usatii said as part of the Politics with Natalia Morari program on TV8.
In his opinion, PSRM can create a coalition with the PDM, “Democrats plus Dodon are practically the majority, plus Andronachi with Niciforciuc and Pro Moldova. Dodon didn’t lie when he said, “Let Maia Sandu not be in a hurry, because early elections will depend on us”, Usatii concluded.
Recall, on February 11, 2021, when the candidate nominated by President Maia Sandu for the post of Prime Minister, Natalia Gavrilita, presented the program of her government at the plenary session of parliament, PSRM leader Igor Dodon announced that he was proposing another candidate for this position – Mariana Durlesteanu. Shortly thereafter, a parliamentary majority of 54 deputies was formalized and declared its support for the Socialist candidate. These are the PSRM and Shor factions, ex-democrats from Pentru Moldova, independent MP Alexandru Oleinic, as well as ex-PDM MPs, currently independent, Evgeny Niciforciuk and Vladimir Andronachi.
President Maia Sandu re-nominated Natalia Gavrilita for the post of Prime Minister which was declared unconstitutional by the Constitutional Court on February 23.
