Moldova’s Constitutional Court ruled Thursday to recognize the “Romanian” as official language in the country instead of “Moldavian”.

The Declaration of Independence, signed in 1990, mentions that the official language of Moldova is “Romanian,” yet, the Constitution adopted by pro-Russian political forces in 1994, declares in article 13 the official language is “Moldavian.”

The case started from the notifications filed by Ana Gutu, one of the complaint authors, and the Liberal Party on the correction of the constitutional realities of article 13 of the Constitution.
