The Pro Moldova parliamentary group proposed an amendment to the Government law that would empower the resigning Government to sign international treaties with financial commitment. Candu reminded that Moldova risks losing 60 million euros of non-reimbursable financial assistance from Romania.
The Pro Moldova parliamentary group proposed an amendment to the Government law. Specifically, the draft provides that the resigning Government may conclude international treaties with financial commitment. Pro Moldova leader Andrian Candu spoke about this today, March 9, during a press briefing.
“Today we are registering this bill in the Parliament, which aims to amend the Government law. Through our project, we want to allow the resigning Government to sign international treaties with financial commitment, especially after it is to be ratified by the Parliament. We do not know how long this interim government will be in office. During this time we can lose potential and opportunities to collaborate with our partners abroad”, said Candu.
Candu reminded that Moldova risks losing 60 million euros of non-reimbursable financial assistance amounting to 100 million euros granted by Romania through the agreement signed in 2010, due to the fact that the Interim Government cannot sign international treaties.
On March 4, the Constitutional Court partially admitted the complaint filed by president Maia Sandu, to determine the constitutionality of several articles of law limiting the power of the country’s president and that of the resigning government. The court also stated that the government could not sign international treaties involving financial commitments exceeding the one-year period or for whose value is disproportionate in relation to expenditure necessary for the administration of day-to-day public affairs or for the management of emergency situations.
