Pavel Filip retires from the leadership of the Democratic Party. The decision was announced after the meeting of the Executive Bureau of the party. “I remain convinced that if Democratic Party were part of the government today, it would have contributed significantly to make this big crisis that the country is going through easier to solve. I remain convinced that Moldova needs competent people, that Democratic Party still has something to offer our country and that it has the right to reinvent itself and return in force, with another leadership,” said Pavel Filip.

“I am leaving without regrets. As Theodore Roosevelt said, you have to do what you can with the resources you have, wherever you are. That’s what we did at the Government. We did what we could with the resources we had in those circumstances. We increased salaries and pensions, built roads and kindergartens, offered the First House to young people, and examined people from all over the country for free as part of the Doctor for You project. We laid the foundations for digitizing the economy, when we simplified obtaining documents at Public Service Agency, we launched virtual IT parks, developed the Digital Moldova 2020 strategy. I must admit that I am most proud of the achievements in the IT field, because today, IT exports have surpassed traditional export domains. I am proud that this project, which I consider to be a child of mine, was started by us, from an idea I had 10 years ago. There have been years when, economically and socially, the country has moved forward. And I am sincerely glad that I had the opportunity to be part of those changes and benefits brought to people,” Pavel Filip stated.

The Executive Bureau of the Democratic Party decided that the meeting of the National Political Council of the party will take place on October 30, and until then the interim position of president of the party will be provided by Monica Babuc.

Pavel Filip was Prime Minister of Moldova from 2016 to 2019, later he was deputy and president of the Democratic Party.
