MOSCOW, September 28. /TASS/. Protesters in downtown Chisinau may switch to more decisive actions if Moldova’s president does not step down by late this week, leader of the opposition’s Party of Socialists Igor Dodon has said.
"We have different tools that we have prepared, various scenarios, including the possibility of sabotaging different government structures, transport hubs and so on," Dodon said in an interview with the Rossiya-24 TV channel on Monday.
Dodon stressed that the opposition is set to act in the framework of the law. "We will make every effort so that there is no destabilization. This is the worst scenario. We need no Ukrainian scenario here," he said.
Moldova’s opposition leaders, who have been holding large-scale protests in downtown Chisinau since early September, have called Nicolae Timofti a "puppet" president and the leaders of the ruling Alliance for European Integration "chief oligarchs."
The protesters call for the resignation of the chiefs of the prosecutor general’s office, the supreme court chamber, the national anti-corruption centre, the audit chamber, the central election commission, the television and radio broadcasting council and the Moldova-1 public television channel.
The resolution adopted on Sunday says snap parliamentary elections are to be held by the spring of 2016. The protest leaders vowed rallies would be held non-stop until all their demands were satisfied.
