Vote of no confidence in Moldovan Ministry of Justice policy finds no support in Parliament
KISINEV, 24 November – RIA Novosti. Parliament Speaker Igor Grosu said on Thursday that a simple no-confidence vote on Moldovan Ministry of Justice’s policy found no support in Parliament, with 53 lawmakers voting “against”.
The Moldavian Communists and Socialists Bloc submitted a motion of no confidence in the Parliament last week on the policy of the Ministry of Justice. The author of the initiative, political power deputy Vasily Bolya, said that it is unacceptable for the executive branch, represented by Minister Litvinenko, to try to control the judiciary. He stressed that there is a need to put things in order in the justice system, but that the minister could not cope with it. Socialists urged Litvinenko to resign.
“23 deputies voted in favor and 53 against, I state that a simple no-confidence vote on the policy of the Ministry of Justice failed,” he said.
At the same time, Litvinenko himself told parliamentarians that he would resign only after “all thieves have been punished and their property confiscated.”
A simple vote of no confidence is a resolution that reflects the position of parliament on domestic or foreign policy. It can be opened by at least 15 deputies, simple voting is done within 14 days.
Earlier, the presidential administration announced that the official Telegram channel of Moldovan President Maia Sandu had been hacked. Litvinenko’s posts about corruption allegations appeared constantly. The authors of the message also assured that they received the personal correspondence of the head of the Ministry of Justice from his phone, which is located on a private website. On Friday, the same website published the personal correspondence of Dorin Recean, Sandu’s National Security Advisor. Parliament Speaker Igor Grosu blamed the opposition and Russia’s FSB. The prosecution opened a criminal case.
