CHISINAU, January 20. /TASS/. Moldova’s opposition is getting ready for a new protest outside the parliament in Chisinau on Wednesday as the lawmakers have announced a surprise move to discuss plans to approve the cabinet led by Pavel Filip.
The opposition Party of Socialists of the Republic of Moldova, the Our Party and the Civil Platform DA (Dignity and Justice) plan to prevent the move.
"We are all gathering outside the parliament’s building. We will not accept the government of oligarchs that they try to approve secretly," said Igor Dodon, the leader of the Party of Socialists of Moldova.
The nomination of Pavel Filip, the deputy chairman of the Democratic Party, as a candidate for Moldova’s prime minister was a compromise in the standoff between President Nicolae Timofti and this political force that has formed a parliamentary majority consisting of 55 lawmakers.
The democrats originally intended to nominate the first deputy chairman of the party, Vladimir Plakhotnyuk, dubbed as "grey cardinal of Moldova’s politics" by local mass media. However, the president did not back the candidate.
Timofti’s decision came amid mass protests in Chisinau. The opposition has said Moldova is a country seized by oligarchs and seeks to hold early parliamentary elections.
