The Socialist Party decided on February 27 that they should enter into a dialogue “with all the parliamentary parties” to overcome the political crisis and propose to president Maia Sandu to negotiate and sign the decree appointing Mariana Durleșteanu for the prime minister post until March 9. Socialist leader Igor Dodon says that if the decree is not signed by March 9, the Socialists will convene again to establish “more determined political actions” that could lead to the “reduction” of the presidency to „decoration”.
Igor Dodon announces that during this week the Socialists will hold talks with the parties in the Parliament in order to identify the solutions for overcoming the crisis.
Someone is playing politics and trying to monopolize the state power. Some are discussing a referendum on the president’s resignation. The last thing that concerns us now is Maia Sandu and her position. The Socialist Party will not initiate any referendum for her resignation. Dialogue remains the only solution to end this crisis. This week, the Socialist Party will continue the dialogue with the parties in the Parliament in order to identify solutions for overcoming the current political crisis,” said Dodon.
He claims that the Socialist Party wants a “constructive dialogue” with president Maia Sandu.
“Both the faction and I are ready to talk with Maia Sandu. We ask her to get out of isolation and have a dialogue with the parties. If we had sat down at the negotiating table in December, we would have solved everything,” said Dodon.
The Socialists ask the president to sign by March 9 the decree appointing Mariana Durleșteanu, for the prime minister position and say that if this does not happen, then they will come with “other actions ”
“We are fighting chaos and we are fighting to have a government. By March 9, the president must nominate Ms. Durleșteanu for prime minister. If this does not happen, we will take more decisive political actions, even if this will mean that the position of president will become decorative, as it was until 2016,” said Igor Dodon.
