CHISINAU, October 29. /TASS/. Moldova’s parliament on Thursday dismissed the cabinet led by Prime Minister Valeriu Strelet that had been formed by the ruling Alianta pentru Integrare Europeana (Alliance for European Integration - TASS).
The vote of no-confidence in the cabinet initiated by the opposition Party of Socialists and the Communist Party received support of 65 of the 101 members of parliament.
Thousands of opposition activists came to the parliament building in the morning to protest against the powers vested in the cabinet. They marched in a column down the city’s central avenue towards the building of the national legislative body chanting ‘Down with Corruption’ and ‘Put thieves on the jail planks’, ‘Down with Corruption’ and ‘Dismiss Strelet’.
The column was escorted by reinforced police crews.
Many thousands-strong antigovernment actions of protest have been rocking Chisinau for the second months on end. Participants in them are demanding an investigation of a high-profile criminal case over the vanishing of $ 1 billion from the Moldovan banking system.
A split appeared in the Alliance for European Integration after the former Prime Minister Vlad Filat, the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Moldova who is suspected of gross corruption was stripped of parliamentary immunity.
