CHISINAU, October 7. /TASS/. Moldova's parliament will discuss resignations of heads of state supervisory agencies demanded by opposition groups, a deputy from the Party of Socialists told TASS on Wednesday, saying the Party of Communists had helped put these issues on the agenda.
"These draft bills will be put to the vote in priority order at a plenary session on October 9," Vladimir Batrincea said.
The opposition was demanding notably resignations of the heads of the General Prosecutor’s Office, the Central Election Commission, the National Center for the Fight Against Corruption, the Information and Security Service and the National Bank, he added.
Ruling coalition Alliance for European Integration has 51 mandates in the 101-seat parliament so the final say is with them. The Socialists faction has 25 seats, the Communists have 20 and five more seats belong to independent parliamentarians.
Mass rallies involving dozens of thousands continue in Moldova’s capital, Chisinau. These were launched by civic platform Dignity and Truth (DA), whose activists declared Moldova a "country seized by oligarchs" and labelling the ruling pro-European coalition a "junta".
Demands sought the resignations of top officials and heads of supervisory departments as well as insisting on an early parliamentary poll and direct presidential election.
The capital’s centre has turned into a tent camp shared by two opposition forces. They have similar demands but DA activists seek European Union integration, blaming the government for "compromising this slogan through theft".
Allies of the Party of Socialists and Our Party seek strengthening of Moldovan statehood and criticise Chisinau’s association agreement with the EU.
