CHISINAU, September 21 /TASS/. Moldovan opposition has set a mass protest rally for September 27 to demand disbandment of parliament, reelection of the president and amendments to the country’s constitution in part of rules of appointing the head of state. Moldova’s Party of Socialists and the Patria (Fatherland) Party of Renato Usatii that will head the protest actions on Sunday are also demanding the resignation of the leaderships of Moldova’s Central Bank; the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Central Electoral Committee whom they accuse of corruption.
"We are going to coordinate our actions with the Party of Socialists," Usatii told a news conference on Monday. He added that more than 10,000 people could join the protest next Sunday. The opposition hopes to set up a tent camp outside Moldova’s parliament building. "Our protests are going to be peaceful and will pass without any party symbols. We are inviting other parties to join the protest movement," Usatii stressed.
Protests have been under way in Moldova for the second week. Two rallies assembled thousands of people in Chisinau on September 6 and 13. Last week, the Civic Platform DA (Dignity and Truth) announced plans to create a party for taking part in parliamentary elections. The demonstrators started picketing the Prosecutor General’s Office building; the National Anti-Corruption Center and other state institutions demanding the resignation of their leaderships. About a hundred protesters, absolutely unhindered by police, are taking part in these pickets.
Public protests in Moldova have recently grown stronger because of Moldova’s grave economic crisis, food shortages and rising tariffs for housing and utilities.
