Security and Intelligence Service under Socialists Party Control

Security and Intelligence Service under Socialists Party Control

Two deputies from Igor Dodon’s Socialists Party registered yesterday, on 1 December, a law that transfers the Security and Intelligence Service (SIS) from the subordination of the president to that of the parliament. The same deputies, a year ago, drafted an opposite law that transferred SIS from the parliament’s subordination to that of the president.

In 2019, after the parliamentary elections, the two socialist deputies drafted an amendment by which the institution’s activity was transferred to the president’s subordination.

The authors claimed that

“being the protector of national unity and community values, the president must play an active role and to have effective intervention levers in certain periods of crisis. Based on this function the president of Moldova must possess a series of attributions, allowing him to initiate, organize, or lead any action aimed at defending sovereignty, national independence, unity, and territorial integrity. With this bill, we want to return those natural responsibilities that the supreme leader of the armed forces must have”.

After Igor Dodon lost the presidency, the newly unofficially formed parliament majority made by the Socialists Party and Shor’s Party wants to take under control the Security and Intelligence Service. On December 1, 2020, the same deputies from the Socialists Party, Vasile Bolea and Grigore Novac registered an opposite bill, this time transferring SIS from the presidency to the parliament. The authors claim that

“This project has as its primary objective the adaptation of the national security system to the democratic value framework specific to a parliamentary republic, giving the need to strengthen parliament’s control over the national security system”.
