President Maia Sandu signed the decree dissolving the Parliament on Tuesday, April 28, and announced the date of the early parliamentary elections – July 11, 2021.

“A few minutes ago I signed the decree dissolving the current Parliament. With this decision, we opened the way for the citizens to be able to elect a new Parliament, which will serve the interests of the country and the people. Power is now in the hands of the people, “Maia Sandu said in a press briefing.

The decree on the dissolution of the Parliament was published. President Maia Sandu signed the decree dissolving the Parliament on Tuesday, April 28 and announced the date of the early parliamentary elections – July 11, 2021. It happened after the Constitutional Court also ruled on April 28 that the establishment of the Socialist – Shor state of emergency is unconstitutional.

With this decision, we opened the way for the citizens to be able to elect a new Parliament, which will serve the interests of the country and the people. Power is now in the hands of the people, “Maia Sandu said in a press briefing.

The deputies in the Parliament and the Socialist leader came with reactions after the Constitutional Court’s decision and the decree of the President to dissolve the Parliament.

The Socialist leader, Igor Dodon stated that the ”parliamentary elections were inevitable, for several reasons, but we should have postponed them due to the pandemic.”

“These parliamentary elections were inevitable, for several reasons, but we should have postponed them due to the pandemic. (…) In elections or by any other legal method, we must show that we will not give up our country to NATO plans, or, unfortunately, this is what everything is reduced to in Moldovan politics: Moldova will become a military platform, for NATO or not. We say firmly – No!,” Says Dodon.

According to the Socialist leader, “the ambassadors of Western countries intervene in the internal affairs of Moldova, and the Romanian ambassador openly offends the Moldovan people, its language and history.”

Democrats posted a note on Facebook announcing that they had taken note of the two decisions, stating that “in the early parliamentary elections, the Democratic Party will promote solutions to the real problems that the country is facing.”

Adrian Candu, the leader of the Pro Moldova group, stated that he hopes “that this time the election will be organized correctly, without deception and rigging of laws, in compliance with national and international electoral rules.”

Those from the For Moldova platform published a note on Facebook in which they expressed their position only towards the decision of the Constitutional Court to cancel the state of emergency.

“The pressures on the Constitutional Court, in order to make decisions based on political interests, are not even hidden anymore, they are committed openly, in front of everyone.

Constitutional Court Declared the State of Emergency Unconstitutional
