CHISINAU, January 20 /TASS/. The Moldovan parliament on Wednesday adopted the program and structure of a new government led by Pavel Filip by 57 votes out of required 101.
The new premier had to announce the cabinet’s structure and program from the hall because deputies from Moldova’s opposition Party of Socialists had blocked access to the central rostrum. They consider the new cabinet to be illegitimate and demand early elections. The vote took place amidst numerous opposition protests, in which thousands are taking part, outside the parliament building.
The Communist Party of Moldova and the Liberal Democratic Party of Moldova voted against the candidacy of Pavel Filip and his cabinet. They described the parliament’s hasty vote as a "show".
The new Moldovan government was formed by a coalition comprising 56 out of 101 deputies. They include the factions of the Democratic Party of Moldova and the Liberal Party of Moldova that have 20 and 13 mandates, respectively, as well as 14 Communist deputies who quit the Communist Party of Moldova in December last year and another nine former deputies of the Liberal Democratic Party of Moldova. Liberal Democrats used to form the nucleus of the previous ruling coalition called "Alliance for European Integration". Now, they have switched sides and joined the opposition.
