The Moldovan Constitutional Court will take over the Presidency of the Conference of European Constitutional Courts for a three-year term, according to a Constitutional Court’s note.

“For two days, on February 24 and 25, the Constitutional Court’s president Domnica Manole will participate online in the 18th Congress of the Conference of European Constitutional Courts, in which the Constitutional Court of Moldova will take over the Presidency of the Conference European Constitutional Courts for a term of three years,” it is shown in an informative note of the institution.

The Constitutional Court of Moldova has been a member of the Conference European Constitutional Courts since 2000. The conference brings together representatives of 41 constitutional courts or institutions with similar competencies and provides member states with a platform to share their views on institutional, and structural issues, and good practice in the field of public law and constitutional jurisdiction.

At the last Congress of the Conference in 2017, the Constitutional Court of Moldova was elected to exercise the Presidency from 2020 to 2023. Due to the pandemic situation, the Court will begin its three-year term on February 25, 2021, after the Constitutional Court of the Czech Republic, the current President-in-Office of the institution, who is also the organizer of the 18th Congress.

The theme of this year’s Congress is: “Human rights and fundamental freedoms: the relationship between international, transnational and national catalogs in the 21st century.”

During 26 years of activity, the Constitutional Court’s decisions have aroused much criticism and reactions in society. In June 2019, the Constitutional Court judges resigned, after taking several decisions in favor of the former leader of the Democratic Party, Vladimir Plahotniuc. The Constitutional Court declared the elected Parliament and the voting of the new Government unconstitutional. The decisions coincided with Democratic Party’s position which declared illegitimate the Parliament and the Sandu Government.
