The Constitutional Court decided on Thursday that the circumstances for Parliament’s dissolution are met. President Maia Sandu is to dissolve the Parliament and to announce the date for early parliamentary elections.

The Constitutional Court decided on Thursday, April 15, on the existence of circumstances that would justify Parliament’s dissolution. The circumstance that justifies the Parliament’s dissolution is its incapacity to form a Government as the term of three months expired and two attempts to form a Government failed.

“The Constitutional Court noted that the three-month term of the Government’s formation dates back to the resignation of former Prime Minister, Ion Chicu. The term expired without the formation of a Government. The court found the circumstances that justify the dissolution of the Parliament,” said the president of the Constitutional Court, Domnica Manole.

President Maia Sandu is to dissolve the Parliament and announce the date for early parliamentary elections to be held.

President Maia Sandu: 

“The Constitutional Court decision paved the way for early parliamentary elections. Early elections are imminent. The time has come to put an end to one of the most corrupt Parliaments in the history of Moldova. I will soon sign the decree for the dissolution of the Parliament and the establishment of the date of the early parliamentary elections,” stated President Sandu.

The president of the Dignity and Truth Party, Andrei Năstase, came with a reaction after the Constitutional Court’s decision claiming that his party is ready for early parliamentary elections. According to Nastase, the members of the platform are campaigning for “free and fair early elections.”

The president of the Socialist Party, Igor Dodon stated that the Court’s decision is a usurpation of power.

“Most Constitutional Court judges, three out of five, by today’s decision, usurped the Supreme Court of Moldova, in the political interest of the country’s president, thus seriously violating constitutional rules, their own decisions are taken in recent years, the recommendations of the Council of Europe and the Venice Commission,” Dodon stated.

On March 30, President Sandu submitted to the Constitutional Court the notification regarding the ascertainment of the circumstances that justify the dissolution of the Parliament. On March 26, 54 deputies from the Socialist Party, Shor Party, the For Moldova platform, and the Pro Moldova group signed a declaration opposing the dissolution of the Parliament. On March 25, the attempt to form the Grosu Government failed due to lack of quorum after the Socialist, Shor, and For Moldova, deputies left the sitting of the Parliament.
