Until August 29 the outgoing president of Moldova must issue a decree to convene the eighteenth Parliament for the first sitting
The Constitutional Court (CC) dismissed the PPCD’s request to recount the votes as groundless. The Court’s decision on the July 29 elections passed on August 14 does not refer to the applications filed by the PL and AMN, whereby they dispute the way in which the seats of MP were distributed. The AMN’s representative to the CEC Nicolae Raileanu said that after they will hold discussions inside the party they will probably appeal to the ECHR.
The CC does not have legislative powers, the Court’s president Dumitru Pulbere has told the reporters. “The representatives of the AMN and PL do not challenge the norms from the Electoral Code, but the way in which the seats were distributed. It will be the new Parliament that will introduce the necessary amendments to the electoral legislation,” Pulbere said.
The representative of the PPCD Radu Busila said that his party will comply with the CC’s decision. “The decision of the Constitutional Court cannot be challenged,” Busila said, adding that the PPCD will continue its political fight outside the legislative body.
Dumitru Pulbere said that until August 29 the outgoing president of Moldova must issue a decree to convene the eighteenth Parliament for the first sitting. The Government of Moldova will resign under a Cabinet decision.
The first sitting is chaired by the oldest MP. The sitting will be attended by the CC president, who will present the final report on the validation of the July 29 elections. After the constitution of the Parliament, the parliamentary groups are formed and the head of state is elected. The president of Moldova nominates the candidate for Prime Minister. Under the law, the candidate for Prime Minister has 15 days to present the government program and the nominal list of the Cabinet members to the Parliament.
