Parliament rejected a simple motion initiated by the Bloc of Communists and Socialists on the policies of the Ministry of Justice. There were 28 votes “for” and 53 votes “against” the motion.

The deputies met on Thursday, October 21, in a plenary session to debate the simple motion against the activity of the Ministry of Justice. The Minister of Justice, Sergiu Litvinenco, gave a speech from the rostrum of the Parliament, in which he described the text of the simple motion submitted by the opposition as “a mixture of lies and falsehoods.”

“The motion is a mixture of fakes and lies. A manipulation with semi-truths taken out of context. (…) It is impossible in two months to build the rule of law. (…) Justice does not serve power, but those who seek justice. We have a rotten system and those from the opposition have contributed to it. After you overthrew the Maia Sandu Government, you took control of Justice,” said the Minister of Justice.

The socialist deputy Grigore Novac stated that the reform of the Judiciary and the law on the Prosecutor’s Office is a failure of the Action and Solidarity Party.

“We asked you what is being done in our state. You haven’t done anything so far. (…) You have thwarted the reform of the Judiciary, and the law of the Prosecutor’s Office is a failure of the Party for Action and Solidarity,” stated the deputy Novac.

The deputies of the Shor Party announced that they will not participate in the voting procedure of the simple motion, mentioning that the action could be interpreted as retaliation.

“Mr. Stoianoglo acted against me and Jardan, so we will not participate because it is a conflict of interest, and our decision on this motion will be qualified as subjective (…) But in general, the position of the Shor Party towards the current government is a negative one,” said the deputy Denis Ulanov.

On October 14, the parliamentary faction of the Bloc of Communists and Socialists submitted a simple motion against the activity of the Ministry of Justice. Vasile Bolea, who read the text of the motion, said that the Action and Solidarity Party and Justice Minister Sergiu Litvinenco “did everything they could to subdue justice.” Bolea accused the majority of “political subordination of justice.”
