In February 2019, parliamentary election took place in Moldova. On June 8, the Constitution Court ruled to disband the Parliament, as it failed to shape the government within the 90-days-long period. Under the Moldovan law, President Igor Dodon must immediately disband the Parliament and appoint the snap election.

Dodon stated he would not dissolve the authority just yet.

At the urgent session of the Parliament on June 8, the MPs elected the government. Maia Sandu was appointed Prime Minister. June 9, the Constitution Court of Moldova decided to hand the presidential authority over to acting Prime Minister Pavel Filip. The reason was that Dodon failed to act and appoint the snap parliamentary election in this situation.

As acting president, Filip immediately ordered to disband the Parliament. He also signed the decree on holding the early election on September 6.
