Following the approval of the new tariffs, the Chisinau territorial office of the State Chancellery appealed the mayor’s instruction in court, reasoning that ‘’the establishment of the tariffs in the public passenger transport is not within the competence of the mayor, as the power belongs to the Chisinau Municipal Council.’’ At the same time, the State Chancellery asked for the cancellation of the new tariffs.

For his part, Chisinau mayor Ion Ceban described the action as ‘’an attack against the local public administration.’’ According to Ceban, ‘’the State Chancellery should have notified the city hall about eventual irregularities and the institution would have had to answer in a period of 30 days.’’ The mayor asked the institution to withdraw the application submitted to court.
