Czechia Forces A Political Collision Into Overtime
14 October 2021
In Moldova, building a pro-Russian regime is much more difficult than a pro-Western one. If the Eastern Partnership were a strictly geopolitical project, Moldova could be considered its true success story.
At the beginning of July of this year, Prime Minister of Moldova Ion Chicu wanted to introduce a package of amendments to the budget, using a formula that allows the government to take responsibility of a law.
In such a situation, laws do not pass through the normal parliamentary path, but the government introduces them independently. If no motion of censure is passed within a certain time, the new law enters into force.
Such a strategy resulted from the fact that the coalition of the Socialist Party (PSRM) and the Democratic Party (PDM) lost their majority in parliament due to the outflow of MPs to the opposition.
