President Maia Sandu believes that the parliament’s decision to introduce a state of emergency until May 30 is “an attempt to postpone the dissolution of parliament.” This was announced by the head of state on March 31 on the air of the “Secretele puterii” program on Jurnal TV.
“What happened today is not a concern for people’s health. This is an empty decision. It doesn’t say what the state of emergency means, how these measures will help reduce the number of COVID-19 cases. I think this is an attempt to postpone the dissolution of parliament,” Sandu said.
The head of state also said that she expects a concrete action plan from the government that will reduce the number of coronavirus cases.
“Based on the difficult situation in which we are today, I still want to believe that the government will take concrete measures and say what a state of emergency means. […] If nothing changes, there will be reason to believe that it was a political performance,” Sandu said.
Recall, until now a state of emergency in the field of health was in force in Moldova due to the coronavirus epidemic. At a meeting on March 31, the parliament decided to introduce a state of emergency by May 30. The government made such a proposal the day before. What the introduction of a state of emergency means in practice is not yet known. Only tomorrow, April 1, the government will prepare a list of restrictive measures. It is reliably known that the state of emergency presupposes that no elections can be held in Moldova.
