CHISNAU, July 24 /TASS/. Moldova’s new government which is being formed by the recreated ruling pro-European coalition (For European Integration -3) will soon fall over differences among its pro-European leaders, Moldova’s former vice-premier Igor Dodon told TASS on Friday.
"The cabinet of ministers of Maia Sandu will stay till autumn. The parliamentary majority is fragile because of contradictions among the leaders of the three parties which have formed it over the distribution of ministerial portfolios," Dodon, the leader of Moldova’s opposition Socialist Party which is holding a quarter of parliamentary mandates, said.
"For example, these guys from the alliance will find a pretext to accuse her of inability to solve economic and social problems. I know Sandu’s character. She will slam the door if she sees that she cannot cope with the situation for lack of support in parliament," Dodon said.
According to him, there is high probability that Moldova will face new presidential elections which can be announced if the government is not approved by September. "To be more precise, early elections will take place next spring because they will be unable to elect the president," Dodon went on to say.
Negotiations on forming a new government have been under way for a month against the background of a high-profile scandal linked to the stealing of $1 billion from banks under the previous governments formed by pro-European parties.
They led to the resignation of Premier Chiril Gaburici on June 12.
