Moldova: New Constitution Against Venice Commission

Posted by Info on 12/03/2010

On 9 March, the four leaders of the current coalition government:Mihai Ghimpu, Marian Lupu, Serafim Urechean and Vladimir Filat , Prime minister announced the decision of the ruling alliance to refuse the development of early parliamentary elections, as provides for by the Constitution, and to initiate the adoption of a new Constitution through referendum.
The leaders of the Alliance also declared that they decided that the current Parliament would operate three years more, even if the constitutional norm provides for its dissolution.

The decision of the Alliance has already raised harsh reactions from the biggest opposition party – PCRM – which, as a sign of protest, since Wednesday, 10 March, would boycott the parliamentary works and initiated a national referendum to give a no confidence vote to the current President of Moldova and the Government. PCRM qualified the actions of the Alliance as ”usurpation of state power”.

Moldovan Premier promised that the draft law on amendments to the Constitution would be mandatory consulted with the Venice Commission.
