President Igor Dodon said a mixed-member electoral system would suit all the parties, including those that do not pass the election threshold. He denied the existence of an agreement with the Democrats on the change in the electoral system and merger of the two bills. Moreover, he said he didn’t give up the idea of dissolving Parliament and calling early legislative elections. He made such statements in an interview for Radio Free Europe, IPN reports.
Igor Dodon said the mixed-member system suits the parties, while the mounted protests and the messages disseminated now are rather an attempt to strengthen the political positions. This is mainly true about parties that lost the population’s confidence, such as the PAS, PPPDA, PPPN, and PCRM. Even in such conditions, these parties could promote their MPs in constituencies. “That’s why these party leaders should say it clearly that the protests have nothing to do with the people’s interests and that they try to gain political advantages. Yes, they are trying to find a place on the political arena,” said President Dodon
Speaking about the Government’s reform, the Head of State said in the ideal variant, there should be a new Government named by a new Parliament elected as a result of early elections. The dissolution of the Parliament and the early elections remain an objective because the current legislature is not representative for the elections of 2014, when the PDM gained only 17% of the poll and now control Parliament and this is not correct. The number of ministries should be reduced and the ministers should be named according to stricter criteria.
As to Speaker Andrian Candu’s statements that if the President deviates from the constitutional norms, either in the case of Cabinet reshuffles or in the promulgation of laws, he could be one day dismissed, Igor Dodon said not only Candu counts the committed violations and he should not forget that a referendum should be held within 30 days to give a vote of confidence or no confidence to the Head of State.
As regards the possible halt in the EU’s financing, the President said that if such a move causes problems to the Government and will lead to early parliamentary elections, he welcomes it. It is the reforms that should be supported, not the Government and the parliamentary alliance.
Igor Dodon noted that next year, when the government is changed as a result or ordinary or early legislative elections, another alliance will be formed. He already launched negotiations in this regard and at least US$ 500 million or US$ 1 billion will come annually. He avoided saying where this money will come, but said that not mandatorily from the European Union and the International Monetary Fund.
