CHISINAU, December 16 /TASS/. Moldova’s opposition Party of Socialists is going to submit constitutional amendments to parliament to exclude a possibility of the country’s unification with Romania in future and prevent the liquidation of the Moldovan state, the party’s leader, Igor Dodon, told TASS on Wednesday.
"The socialists have already prepared a draft law on amending the constitution. We suggest amending article 142 to exclude a possibility of liquidating the sovereignty and statehood of the Republic of Moldova by calling a referendum," Dodon said.
"We are going to submit the bill to parliament soon. Then we will see who is who," he added.
Last week, the Socialists accused the country’s Ministry of Education of poisoning the minds of students and schoolchildren with an idea of liquidation of the Moldovan state and unification with neighbouring Romania.
To prove their point, the Socialist deputies demonstrably tore a map, which depicted Moldova and Romania as one unified state, in front of their fellow-deputies on December 10. The map was meant for distribution at Moldovan schools and institutions of high learning. The Socialists demonstrably tore the map in the presence of other deputies.
"The Unionists (this is how supporters of Moldova’s unification with Romania call themselves) have grown absolutely fearless. Their representative, Moldova’s Education Minister Corina Fusu, who is a well-known unionist, issued an instruction to distribute didactic materials, including the map, and the neighbouring country’s flags in all educational establishments in Moldova," Dodon told parliament on December 10. He described Fusu’s actions as an open attempt to promote the idea of Moldova’s liquidation.
A recently held public opinion poll has revealed that only 21% of Moldova’s population support the idea of unification with Romania.
