Dodon believes it is quite realistic to address the country’s future parliament, to be elected November 30, a motion in favour of severing the agreement of association with the European Union until a national referendum on Moldova’s geopolitical vector. The leader of Moldova’s Socialists said that his party had already assumed the obligation to propose a draft resolution to this effect be included in the agenda at the very first meeting of a new national legislature.
State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin said the Russian legislature regarded Moldova’s Socialist Party as a reliable partner. It was aware that the party’s credibility with the electorate was growing, and so was its influence on the political situation inside the country.
“We are very positive about and appreciate your position on such issues as the rights of Russian speakers, the status of the Russian language and Orthodox values, the intricate problem of Trans-Dniestria and its status and its future development,” Naryshkin told Moldovan legislators.
“The sole way of preserving Moldova as a sovereign state is to stop the harmful agreement on European integration and on free trade with Europe, which is already ruining the economy, and to proceed towards the Customs Union together,” Dodon said.
A member of the Moldovan parliament’s commission for economics, budget and finance, Zinaida Greceanii, mentioned the findings of latest opinion polls indicating that 80% of Moldovans believed the country’s current development policy was wrong.
