Constitutional Court Orders Moldovan Parliament To Disband – Small Country = Big Mess

Posted by Info on 22/09/2010

The ruling of the Constitutional Court is binding and final, coming into force after its official publication. Now the acting president of Moldova can and must sign a decree to dissolve the parliament and set a date for an early election.”
The new parliamentary election is expected in late November.

Moldova’s parliament has been deadlocked between the Communist Party and an alliance of liberal and national parties. The opposition between the two sides prevented each from succeeding in making its candidate become the new president, who is elected by MPs in Moldova. Both attempts – on October 23, 2009 and on December 7, 2009 – failed.

Then a national referendum on amendments to the Moldovan Constitution held on September 5 brought no result either: it was declared invalid due to low voter turnout. The citizens were to decide if the president should be elected directly, or – as it is now – by the parliament.

The pro-Western coalition came to power in July 2009 following eight years of Communist rule. Back in April 2009, after the communists gained victory in the parliamentary vote, the international observers declared the elections were fair.

In spite thousands took to the streets of the capital Chisinau. The protest rally turned violent and the crowd stormed the presidential palace and parliament, burning and damaging everything on their way. Days of unrest resulted in hundreds or people injured. In July 2009, a second election was held bringing the opposition to power.

After ex-President and Communist leader Vladimir Voronin’s resignation in September last year, the Parliamentary Speaker and Head of the Liberal Party Mihai Ghimpu has remained acting president declared earlier : God’s will – his land would be inhabited by Romanians and Russia – by Russians, France – by French people, Germany – by Germans“
One wonders what the president plans to do with the rest of Moldovans as there are next to Moldovan/Romanian 78.2%, als Ukrainian 8.4%, Russian 5.8%, Gagauz 4.4%, Bulgarian 1.9%, other 1.3%;

Poorest country in Europe – Moldova with its corruption / nepotism – country run by family – “here we go again.”
