CHISINAU, December 14. /TASS/. Members of Moldova's opposition Our Party led by mayor of the country's second largest city of Balti, Renato Usatii, staged a picket outside the president’s residence in the capital Chisinau on Monday demanding Nicolae Timofti’s resignation.
The rally draws around 1,000 people who beat the drums and shout: "Down With Timofti" and "President Needs to Resign." Police have cordoned off the entry to the residence.
Last night, the activists of Our Party held a picket outside the presidential residence in Condrita, some 30 kilometers from Chisinau, demanding the resignation of the president and the ruling corrupt regime.
The protesters claimed that the West is urging Moldova’s authorities to set up a new government that consists of former corrupt officials. "We have no independent president, Timofti is told how to behave and what to say. We are ashamed for such a leader, we are tired of shame," Usatii said.
The opposition demands early presidential and parliamentary elections and an investigation into large-scale embezzlement in the country, the politician said.
Moldova has been hit by protests demanding the resignation of the pro-European authorities for a third month in a row. The situation deteriorated after former Prime Minister Vlad Filat, who is the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party, the core of the pro-European coalition, was arrested on corruption-related charges in mid-October.
