Chisinau, 8 November /MOLDPRES/ - The faction of the Party of Socialists (PSRM) registered a motion of censure against the government led by Maia Sandu in parliament today. The document was recorded immediately after the cabinet had taken responsibility in parliament for the draft on amendment of the Law on the Prosecutor General’s Office.    

The motion was read by PSRM lawmaker Vasile Bolea in parliament’s plenum and is to be considered by the juridical commission for rules and immunities and will be afterwards discussed at the next parliament meeting.

“In June 2019, the government sworn in office in difficult conditions of political uncertainty re-brought the citizens’ hopes in the states’ institutions. The citizens hoped that the management of the state’s affairs would be more efficient and the transformations for the better will not let themselves to be long awaited. Instead of changing the wrong direction in which the country was moving, the current government became a cabinet which, though its inaction in various directions of social and economic activity, harms the interests of the present and next generations of citizens. The new draft on the Prosecutor General’s Office, assumed by the cabinet on 6 November, seriously endangers the independence of the prosecutor’s office and politicizes this institution. The Sandu government infringed the elementary democratic principles: it changed the game rules during the game, ignored the good practices in the field of nomination of a prosecutor general, ignored the Constitution and the opinion of the Venice Commission, replaced the parliament on a subject of public interest, avoiding public debates and the most serious thing in the present situation, it betrayed the confidence of the political and international partners,” Bolea said.       

The PSRM MP informed that the formation he was a member of would not tolerate the actions of the cabinet of ministers, which it describes as “responsible for the failure of the justice reform.” “The new draft law assumed by the government worsens even more the difficult situation in the justice sector and puts an end to the state’s efforts to reform the Prosecutor General’s Office according to a European model. The principle of separation and balance of the executive and judicial powers is infringed by this document assumed by the government,” Bolea added.   

While the PSRM MPs were unveiling the motion of censure in parliament’s plenum, more citizens were protesting outside the parliament building to back the government and the PM.
