“Venice Commission sent for two times successively its representatives in order to propose to the government solutions to overcome the deadlock reached by the Republic of Moldova.  But, maximum attention to the way the acting head of state understands to treat the Venice Commission: “it is a recommendation, if we want – we take it into account, if not – we do not take it into account“, declared the CDPP leader, Iurie Roşca, specifying that “It seems to me as an unprecedented attitude“, the attitude of the current leadership of the country towards international organizations.

Commenting the decision of the leaders of the Alliance for European Integration to adopt a new Constitution by means of a referendum, who ignored in this way the recommendations of the Venice Commission, the CPDD leader, Iurie Roşca, declared that “never, either the Council of Europe or the Venice Commission did not issue decisions, but recommendations that have a mandatory character for a country with deficiencies as regards the respect for human rights and functioning of democratic institutions “.

“From the very modest press statements, made by the representatives of the Venice Commission, I understood the following: “it would be preferable to have a dialogue with the opposition and to identify some consensus solutions“. Was there something like this?“, asked Roşca.

The four leaders of the current coalition government: Marian Lupu, Serafim Urechean, Mihai Ghimpu and Vladimir Filat, declared on Tuesday evening, after a joint meeting, that AEI decided to adopt a new Constitution through a referendum.  
Earlier, the President of the European Commission for Democracy trough Law of the Council of Europe (Venice Commission), Gianni Buquicchio declared during a briefing in Chişinău that the overcome of the crisis is priority for Moldova rather than the amendments to the Constitution. The President of the Venice Commission specified that “he insists on the need to observe the laws and current Constitution“. “Every reform should be done by observing the effective norms and laws“, emphasized the European official.
