Prime Minister Ion Chicu declared the removal of four ministers, members of the Democratic Party of Moldova, from office.

Moreover, Chicu will ask president Dodon to accept the resignation of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration of Moldova, Oleg Țulea. The announcement comes after Saturday, the leader of the Democratic Party of Moldova, Pavel Filip, declared that he would withdraw the Party’s representatives from the government after the presidential elections.

In today’s Government’s meeting, Prime Minister Ion Chicu announced he would also come up with nominations for the Democratic Party ministers’ replacement and hopes that the president will accept the new suggested ministers by the end of the day.

Thus, the dismissed ministers are Sergiu Răilean, the Minister of Economy; Igor Șarov, the Minister of Education; Alexandru Pînzari, the Minister of Defense and the Deputy Prime Minister for Reintegration, Cristina Lesnic. At the same time, Minister of Foreign Affairs Oleg Țulea allegedly submitted a resignation request and will move to Moldova’s ambassador’s position in Hungary.

Moreover, as the Government changes its ministers this week, the second round of the presidential elections will take place on Sunday, November 15. Moldovans will choose between current president Igor Dodon, supported by the Socialists’ Party, and the former Prime Minister Maia Sandu, candidate of the Action and Solidarity Party.
