Current legislature was most irresponsible and volatile ever
For the first time in the history of the Republic of Moldova, the current Parliament betrayed the concept of sovereignty and didn’t honor the obligations assumed before the people in the election campaign. The Parliament’s activity was redirected to a very narrow group of people who set a series of tasks for the volatile parliamentary majority that lacks any credibility, in an ultimatum-like way, public policy expert Ștefan Gligor said in the public debate “Place of Parliament of 20th legislature in life of society and in history of Moldovan parliamentarianism” that was the 98th installment of the series of debates “Developing political culture through public debates”, staged by IPN News Agency and Radio Moldova.
The expert stated there were allegations as to the fact that the current majority was formed by bribing MPs. This fact wasn’t investigated by the prosecution bodies, probably because they are busy with the harassment of the local public authorities, intimidation of civic activists and their chasing,” stated Ștefan Gligor. The expert said Moldova’s Parliament is now not really a Parliament. “The current Parliament would have been an institution if it had respected Moldova’s legislation and done legislative work in the people’s interests. If we analyze by chapters the activity of the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova, through the angle of lawmaking, we will see that the obligations assumed before the development partners were more seriously violated with each adopted package of laws, and the security, stability and financial welfare of the oligarchic group that now controls the Republic of Moldova became more powerful,” he noted.
“If you ask me about the place of the Parliament of the 20th legislature in the history of the Republic of Moldovan, I can say this is definitely that Parliament that managed to annihilate the concept of sovereignty for the first time. For me, this is a definite fact. There is a big difference between the current Parliament and the Parliament of 2001-2005 as that legislature was voted by the people and that majority was generated by the people’s massive support. Now we have a Parliament that was voted based on particular promises, but was later reshaped according to private personal interests. This is betrayal of the obligations assumed by the MPs before the people and implementation of a plan of mainly legislative activity that favors a narrow, group interest,” stated Ștefan Gligor, nothing the current parliamentary majority that followed this scenario should be prosecuted.
