In Moldova, the Constitutional Court has stopped the authority of President Ihor Dodon one more time. Such decision was made on September 24 upon request of MPs of “Democratic Party of Moldova” as point.md. reported.
It is noted that earlier the Constitutional Court rejected the request of Adrian Lebedinschi, the adviser of the president who asked the court to stop the process. According to him, the application was filed by people who do not possess the proper authorities.
The order of the Constitutional Court is connected with the refusal of Dodon to appoint a number of ministers offered by the prime minister. The chairman of the parliament has a right to sign the order on the appointment of the ministers after the suspension of Dodon.
“In this case, the authority of the head of the state can be delegated to the chairman of the parliament or prime minister,” Mikhail Poalelungi, the Chairman of the Constitutional Court explained.
At the end of last week, the MPs of the “Democratic Party of Moldova” appealed to the court as Igor Dodon refused to appoint Nikolai Chubuk and Silvia Rada at the posts of the ministers.
Earlier it was reported that the Constitutional Court of Moldova temporarily stopped the powers of Ihor Dodon, the President of Moldova. The court made such decision on January 2 on the request of the group of the MPs from the ruling coalition.
The similar situation took place in October 2017 when Dodon rejected the nominee of Evgeny Sturza for the position of the Defense Minister for many times. Then the Constitution Court stopped the powers of Ihor Dodon and the chairman of the parliament signed the appointment of Sturza to the post of the Defense Minister.
