CHISINAU, January 15. /TASS/. Ion Paduraru, who was nominated by Moldova’s President Nicolae Timofti as candidate for prime minister, has withdrawn his candidacy.
"I have taken a decision to withdraw my candidacy so that the president could continue consultations with the parliamentary majority on a premier’s candidacy," Paduraru said at a briefing on Friday.
Paduraru was nominated by President Timofti on Thursday against the decision of the parliamentary majority that had proposed the candidature of businessman Vladimir Plahotniuc, a deputy leader of the Democratic Party of Moldova.
Earlier on Friday, Moldova’s parliament majority formed around the Democratic Party of Moldova proposed the candidature of Minister of Information Technologies and Communications Pavel Filip for the post of prime minister. Filip’s candidature had won support from 55 out of 101 lawmakers.
Under the Moldovan Constitution, the president nominates a candidate for prime minister who is given 15 days to form a new cabinet and present his program to the parliament for approval. The president may dissolve the parliament and appoint early elections in case the lawmakers fail to vote confidence to the government within 45 days. This period expires in Moldova on January 29.
