Moldova to hold referendum to change the country’s constitution on September 5

Moldovan voters will head to polling stations on September 5 in a referendum to change the country’s constitution to end the year-long political logjam, caused by parliament’s inability to elect a president.

The referendum proposed a change in article 78 of the country’s constitution, envisioning the president being elected by popular vote, as the country did since declaring independence in 1991 and until constitutional amendments were passed in 2000.
