Opposition parties prepare no-confidence motion against Moldovan government

Opposition parties prepare no-confidence motion against Moldovan government
By Iulian Ernst in Bucharest October 21, 2015

Moldova's Communist Party (PCRM) and the largest parliamentary party, the Socialist Party (PSRM), have announced plans to file a no-confidence motion against the government of Prime Minister Vladimir Strelet. However, in order to pass the motion they will need the support of other parties in the parliament.

While the two parties might cooperate on the no-confidence motion, it is unclear yet whether they would form the core of any new parliamentary majority. Rather, PCRM would more likely support a minority coalition of PSRM and the Democrat Party, in case those two parties could reach such an agreement. Vladimir Voronin, the PCRM leader, stressed on October 20 that his party would not enter any ruling coalition.

The 79 MPs who voted to lift the parliamentary immunity of the leader of the senior ruling party PLDM, Vlad Filat, last week should vote for the no-confidence motion against the government, Voronin said. Strelet and his Liberal Democrat Party (PLDM) have vocally supported Filat, Voronin explained. The 79 MPs, out of 101 in parliament, included members of the two junior ruling partners, the Liberal Party and Democrat Party, which have until now pledged their support to the cabinet of Prime Minister Strelet.
