CHISINAU, March 4. /TASS/. Moldova’s Constitutional Court ruled on Friday general elections of the president will be the best option for the country.
According to the Court’s judges, the parliament-adopted constitutional amendment of July 5, 2000 changing the procedure of presidential elections has triggered a situation that provoked a breach in the constitutional unity.
Thus, the Court cancelled this amendment and other amendments to laws envisaging elections of the president by three fifth of the votes in parliament (61 out of 101). Hence, the Constitutional Court upheld the previous procedure of presidential elections in a nationwide polling.
"We think that that the president of the republic is to be elected by the nation," Alexandu Tanase, the president of the Moldovan Constitutional Court, said, adding that the court ruling is final and unchangeable.
Moldova abandoned the practice of general presidential elections in 2000. This way, the country’s lawmakers tried to restrict the authority of the then President Petru Lucincshi. Analysts say these amendments triggered a series of political crises in the country when lawmakers could not reach consensus and elect a president. It was the reason for early parliamentary elections in 2000, 2009 and 2010.
