Chisinau, March 16. /MOLDPRES/- In all legislation of the Republic of Moldova, the phrase "Romanian language" will take the place of "Moldovan language". The phrases "official language", "state language" and "mother tongue" will also be replaced. MPs voted today on a draft in this regard in the second reading.
Among the draft's provisions is the consideration of the obsolescence of the text "operating on the basis of Latin script" in Article 13 of the Constitution. Also, within 30 days from the entry into force of the law, the public authorities with the competence to adopt, approve or issue normative acts inferior to the law will make the necessary changes. At the same time, the "Our Language" National Holiday, as it is currently called in the Parliament's Decision on commemorative days, holidays and rest days and in the Labor Code, will be called "Romanian Language".
According to the authors of the document, the conditions that required the adoption of the present legislative amendments result, undoubtedly, from the necessity and obligation to implement some considerations with constitutional value, contained in the documents of the High Court of Constitutional Jurisdiction and which state an indisputable postulate, namely that the state language of the Republic of Moldova is Romanian.
