PCRM says early elections possible

MOLDOVA

The Communists Party (PCRM) does not rule out the possibility of new early legislative elections. This topic was discussed at Wednesday΄s plenary meeting of the PCRM.

The Communist MP Vladimir Turcan said that there is a 50% probability that early elections will take place. “At today΄s meeting, we will not take a definitive decision as we will yet follow how things develop,” he said.

He reiterated that the invitation for the four parties – the PLDM, PL, PDM and AMN – to form a wide coalition is still valid.

Another Communist MP, Mark Tkachuk said that today the Communists assessed the political situation in the country and adopted a resolution that will be made public. “The political style adopted by the Alliance for European Integration (AEI) does not suit us. We will not be to blame if early elections take place,” he said.

Asked if the Communist MPs will go to the sitting that they scheduled for September 4, Tkachuk said that they will go, but if a quorum is not present, the meeting will be adjourned.

The member of the PCRM Vadim Misin recommended the AEI to yield the power up to the PCRM as it is the only party able to take the country out of the crisis.

After the meeting, the leaders of the party gathered to draw up the list of members of the parliamentary group of the PCRM.

The meeting was attended by the departing first deputy prime minister Igor Dodon. Asked why the Prime Minister did not accept the MPs΄ invitation to attend the Parliament΄s sitting, Dodon said that the Government resigned, but presented a report on the social-economic situation in the country a week ago. “I don΄t think it is the opportune moment to go o the Parliament today as they don΄t want to obtain information, but something else,” he said, without giving more details.

The A EI called the Parliament΄s sitting for September 2. The MPs of the PCRM did not attend.
