Chisinau, 15 June /MOLDPRES/- The leaders of the Liberal Democratic Party (PLDM) and Democratic Party (PDM), Vlad Filat and Marian Lupu, said on 14 June that they would start negotiations with other parties to set up a majority coalition.
Filat said he would get in touch with the leader of the Liberal Party (PL), Mihai Ghimpu, "to proceed to creating a new parliamentary majority and investing a new government as soon as possible".
"Snap polls would mean a disaster for Moldova", Filat said.
For his part, Lupu said he would start negotiations with "those parties which will openly back the government's priorities". He noted he was referring to the PL and Party of Communists.
Last week, PL announced it would not make coalition with any party of current government "as long as a foreign prosecutor will not be put into service, and those guilty of robbery at Banca de Economii (Savings Bank) will not be punished".
Last week, Prime Minister Chiril Gaburici resigned for reasons that he did not want that "issue related to his education diploma should become national problem".
Thus, the current government, invested on 18 February, remains on duty until appointment of a new premier.
