CHISINAU, June 12. /TASS/. Moldova’s government led by Prime Minister Chiril Gaburici has submitted resignation with the parliament.
"Following the resignation of the prime minister the entire cabinet tenders its resignation," the government said in a resolution passed at its session on Tuesday.
The prime minister announced his resignation plans on June 12. The resignation was prompted by a media scandal in April over allegations that Gaburici had a fake higher education diploma. The prime minister then said he had come under pressure. "I was summoned to the prosecutor general’s office over documents about my education. You know, it happened exactly after I had called for the resignation of a number of officials," he said, obviously referring to tops officials from the prosecutor general’s office, the National Bank and the National Financial Market Commission who were accused of being involved in a banking scandal.
"The government has no appropriate levers while institutions enjoying relevant authorities are in hurry to solve these problems. I don’t want to see affinity groups destroy the country," Gaburici said.
Gaburici took the premier’s office on February 18. In parliament voting, his candidature was supported by the Liberal Democratic and Democratic parties backed by the opposition Party of Communists.
