The parliamentary majority, which includes the Socialist Party (PSRM), the Shor Party and other MPs, could vest the incumbent government with expanded powers if President Maia Sandu refuses to nominate the prime minister they have nominated. This stated the PSRM faction chairman Corneliu Furculita on the air of the TV channel Primul in Moldova, noting that more than 70 MPs are ready to support this proposal. But he did not specify which factions’ deputies support the majority that PSRM and the Shor party created.
Furculita noted that more than 70 MPs said they were ready to support this initiative.
“There are already proposals that if Ms Durleshteanu or another candidate proposed by the majority is not nominated, then the current government, which now has limited powers, will work. However, the support of the parliamentary majority – more than 70 deputies who will have the necessary completeness of decision-making – will allow the government to work normally in this situation, including making amendments to the budget and signing international treaties, if necessary,” Furculita said.
He noted that there have been cases in the EU countries when the parliament and government “have been working with limited powers for quite a long time.”
Recall, Maia Sandu said on TV she would not hold consultations with parliamentary factions and would not nominate a candidate for prime minister who is supported by a “corrupt parliamentary majority”.
It should be noted that on February 11, the PSRM deputies headed by Dodon proposed to nominate the former Minister of Finance, Mariana Durleshteanu, as prime minister. A new coalition was created to approve her candidacy in parliament. It includes 54 deputies. Among them are deputies from the PSRM, the Shor party, the Pentru Moldova group, the independent deputy Alexandru Oleinic, and others.
