CE Venice Commission About Moldova

Posted by Info on 24/06/2011

The Venice Commission of the Council of Europe made the conclusion that the Republic of Moldova should hold early parliamentary elections and give up the idea of organizing a constitutional referendum.

The Venice Commission is of the opinion that the Article on dissolution of Parliament applies to the situations set out in the Article on the election of the President, and that a dissolution of Parliament “can therefore not take place twice within one year, even if Parliament fails to elect the president twice. According to the Commission, the words “in the course of a year” should be interpreted as meaning one year, counting from the last dissolution of Parliament and not within one calendar year. This means that Parliament could be dissolved at the earliest on 16 June 2010. The Commission underlines that following this date, dissolution must take place within a reasonable timeframe”.
