CHISINAU, January 22. /TASS/. Moldova’s opposition resumed protests on Friday demanding the resignation of the country’s authorities.
People are gathering at tent camps outside the parliament where supporters of the opposition Party of Socialists and the Our Party have been consolidated and also on the central square of Chisinau where the Dignity and Truth (DA) civic platform is protesting.
"Today all the three parties again unite in one column and set off for a march. We will act in line with the law," socialist leader Igor Dodon said, calling on the protesters to remain unprovoked.
"They expect us to stage riots to use force. We will not give them this reason," he said.
On Friday, the protesters expect authorities to react towards the earlier ultimatum on the resignation of the new government of Pavel Filip that they say is illegal. The new premier called on Interior Minister Alexander Jizdan to take more decisive actions against protesters who violate public order.
"I ask you to take care about security of citizens and to show maximum determination on bringing to justice for violent actions and provocations. Do not allow this," Filip said.
Moldova’s police said 12 law enforcers were injured during the clashes with protesters on Wednesday when the new government was approved. Ten police officers have been hospitalized.
