No Quick Fix For Moldova’s Political Crisis

Posted by Info on 30/11/2009

By Louis O’Neill was OSCE ambassador and head of mission to Moldova from 2006-08.

….Serious changes to the Moldovan Constitution are sorely needed, but they should be undertaken with great care and deliberation, not as a quick fix.
What is needed now is one last round of serious, responsible, mature, good-faith negotiations between the AIE and the Communists to elect a president under the existing system. Then, in an atmosphere of (relative) calm, Moldova’s politicians, scholars, and advisers can undertake a comprehensive review of the constitution to create a better system for Moldova’s people and its future leaders.

Otherwise, the country’s politicians will just be perceived as moving, once again, to advance their own interests, and in reality will only be slapping a bandage on a dysfunctional system.
