    A popular saying is that you can predict a fine day by its morning. But good governance, when and how is it known? There are two more weeks until the cabinet of ministers will answer questions in the plenary of the Parliament about how they do their work, what they managed to do and what not, if everything goes according to their promises three months ago, when they accepted the positions.

    It will be the first test of the Action and Solidarity Party, since entering the mandate: 100 days have passed since the inauguration of the Gavrilița Government. It will not be easy to report, given that the crises have stormed Moldova. Action and Solidarity Party have what to report, but it also what to blame them of.

    ”This government will not steal, will not distribute public money illegally, will not protect crooks and bandits, we will clean the state institutions of corrupt people, we will do everything to recover the money from the billion fraud and other schemes … This government will work for citizens. We know what we have to do. It will not be easy, but we will manage,” declared, at the investiture, the prime minister Natalia Gavrilița. This commitment made out loud in the plenary of the Parliament resounded, from the central rostrum, as a solemn oath from the Government. Does it remain in force? Let it be up to everyone to judge things as they see and feel them.

    The Action and Solidarity Party ambitions were high three months ago and remain high with the priority on justice and anti-corruption. Neither the accusations of dictatorship, launched by the Socialists, nor the protests also provoked by them in Chișinău and Comrat, nor the threats with early elections could cause the Action and Solidarity Party to give up the reforms in state institutions.

    The Action and Solidarity Party has pledged to do in four years what all previous governments have not done: revolutionize the system of government in Moldova. Is it possible or impossible, considering that no other party that governed didn’t even dare to declare such things, nor to try to do something like this … In the past, it did not go beyond demagoguery and theft. Will it be different with the Action and Solidarity Party? At least, those who voted with them want this, but that does not mean that since we chose them, we should make their statements as flags and triumph under them, without paying attention to what it is really done. The Action and Solidarity Party is just at their first step in governing. Temptations and challenges still follow.

    The Gavrilița government focused, for the beginning of its mandate, on four priority directions: managing the health crisis, starting judicial reforms and the anti-corruption package, increasing the population income and social protection of vulnerable groups, rehabilitating external relations and external financing. Three months is not a term that would allow us to be objective in the evaluation. They are more at the start. How was this start, how is it?

    If we look at the situation of the four priorities, we find, to our regret, that: One – the government has lost the fight against the pandemic. Moldova has registered, in the last seven days, one of the highest death rates associated with COVID-19, in relation to the number of population, ranking 12th worldwide. One man dies in less than 45 minutes in Moldova. Two: no major changes were made to increase the income of the population and the social protection of vulnerable people, except for the increase of the minimum pensions for the age limit to 100 euros. This was to be expected as the government emerged from a budget destroyed by the socialists and their teammates from the Shor Party until the resignation of the Chicu Government.

    For this reason or for others, the Government lost here a second great struggle: the one with prices, which are not controlled by anyone. And the situation continues to deteriorate. What has been achieved? I believe that the first and greatest success was the restoration, in record time, of external financing and external relations, both with the neighborhood (Romania and Ukraine) and with the EU and the USA. Thanks to these relations, Moldova has ensured the overcoming of several crises, including the one of energy security, which we have reached due to Russia’s disloyalty in the new relations with Chișinău. In foreign affairs, relations with Russia remain a problem. Internally – here, the most serious achievement of the Action and Solidarity Party would be to consider, probably, the start of judicial reforms and the restoration of order in the legal system. The detention of Prosecutor General Alexandr Stoianoglo is the start of the fight with the justice mafia and against high-level corruption – this is what the Action and Solidarity Party has formulated as a priority task of the governing program.

    It is possible that certain procedures were not observed in Stoianoglo’s arrest – which is unfortunate, of course, but that is not the root of the problem, the root of the problem being the fight against corruption in the judiciary and in the entire state administration system.

    It’s, I think, the biggest blow ever to the political-mafia system in Moldova. Stoianoglo’s dismissal is not just his downfall. The fall of Stoianoglo means opening the doors to cases of great corruption and the beginning of the end for everything that is unjust in Moldova. Stoianoglo’s arrest, and if he is convicted, means the end not only for Dodon but for all “Dodons” in Moldova who, lacking legal coverage, will have to appear before the law for theft and political banditry which they committed being in state institutions. Stoianoglo’s arrest is demoralizing: voluntary departures from Courts, Prosecutor’s Offices, politics, central and local public administration. Do you think that Dodon withdrew from the Parliament and from the Socialist Party’s leadership because he didn’t feel well where he was? No, he left because the earth is burning under him because he does not want to repeat the fate of Vlad Filat. Dodon prepares to run. And not just him. The big cleaning is just coming.

    From an early age we were taught that a good morning promises a good day. But good governance? When governance is good? Is it when it’s bad with those that are bad and good with the others?
