Since last year, the most discussed topic in the political arena is the possibility of holding early parliamentary elections. Citizens, exhausted from daily struggle and disappointed with promises, wait for situation to change with early elections. That’s what the people’s elected officials say – “we need early parliamentary elections!” But do deputies really want that?
Doina Gherman, Action and Solidarity Party
All parties, more or less, sincerely acknowledge the need for early elections. Our party is the most consistent in this regard, and the only constitutional path left is the non-election of the Government by Parliament. That is why we went for the radical solution of not voting for the Gavriliţă Government, exhausting the first attempt to invest, and we are willing to repeat it. Dissolving Parliament and holding early elections is not a fad, but a necessity to clean up the political class, as people demand.
Alexandru Slusari, Dignity and Truth Platform
We want early parliamentary elections. We want them not because all the deputies are thieves. We do not accept at all the idea of denigrating all deputies. We want early elections because now we face great danger from the Dodon-Shor alliance, which can create a majority in the Parliament.
Corneliu Furculiță, Party of Socialists
In January, we had discussions on this topic, including with the leaders of the Action and Solidarity Party. We are for early parliamentary elections but in compliance with the provisions of the Constitution. We believe that we need a Government for a short period. Otherwise, we risk the country entering a deep economic and social crisis.
Pavel Filip, Democratic Party
Early elections would now mean another year lost. For half a year, everyone will be campaigning, the other half – creating coalitions. Who will take care of salaries, pensions, etc.? Who takes responsibility if in a few months we end up not having money on wages and pensions? Early elections now would mean going to the polls with the Government of Dodon and Shor and their people in all the key positions. You have seen what some the Government’s members are dealing with: pressures, intimidation on mayors and party members who did not want to support them.
Andrian Candu, Pro Moldova
Pro Moldova does not want to play other’s games and does not want to get caught in the highly publicized trap for or against the early elections. After all, the only party in the current Parliament that has not entered into governing alliances with any political force has the right not to want to participate in the mass disturbance.
Marina Tauber, Shor Political Party
We understand the need for early elections, especially considering that we have in the Parliament almost a third of the deputies who lack integrity and have run from one party to another. We want early elections, but we are also interested in the price that citizens will have to pay. That is why we have insisted and continue to insist that, before we start a new electoral campaign, we must solve the most pressing issues that can no longer be delayed. Such problems, like the vaccination against COVID-19, supporting the business environment, severely affected by the pandemic, as well as identifying solutions to help farmers.
