Natalya Gavrilita says that in the absence of a parliamentary majority supporting the government’s initiatives, voting for a minority executive government will only prolong the country’s political agony.
Moreover, Natalia Gavrilita claims that her party sees two solutions to overcome the crisis: either the failure of another attempt to elect a government, or holding a referendum, ipn.md reports.
Natalia Gavrilita said that her party does not agree with the idea of creating a minority government headed by Andrei Nastase, since giving power to such a government would further push back the date of early elections.
“I cannot imagine how a minority government lacking support of the parliamentary majority can address the people’s problems. We know from the experience of the Sandu government that when some progress is made in purging state institutions, deputies who are disadvantaged by these achievements in the fight against corruption file a no-confidence vote. Such actions only extend the agony for a month or two,” Natalia Gavrilita said on the air of the program “Politics of Natalia Morari ”on TV8.
Gavrilita says that the head of state is not afraid to initiate the procedure for her removal from office and is ready to go to a referendum.
“However, there is still a way to follow the path of another appointment of the prime minister and his/her non-approval by the parliament. Or go to a referendum. Madam President is ready to take the path of holding a referendum, but are political parties ready for this? The President promised the people changes, and we believe that this change needs to be done now,” Natalia Gavrilita said.
Natalia Gavrilita did not say whether the head of state would initiate consultations with parliamentary factions, as suggested by the Constitutional Court.
“It is quite obvious that there is no stable majority in parliament that could rule for the benefit of citizens during a crisis. And now discussions are going on in parliament, which means that even the parties do not have a solution at the moment to propose it to President Sandu,” Natalia Gavrilita said.
Natalia Gavrilita was the first candidate nominated by President Maia Sandu for the post of Prime Minister. During the first attempt to empower the government of Natalia Gavrilita, her cabinet did not receive a single vote at a plenary session of parliament. After the Constitutional Court’s decision to declare unconstitutional the decree on reappointing Natalia Gavrilita as a candidate for prime minister, President Maia Sandu noted that it will be up to citizens to choose their future via early elections or a referendum. The head of state declined to mention whether she will comply with the decision of the Constitutional Court or not to initiate consultations with parliamentary factions.
