Democratic Party of Moldova is calling all parliamentary political parties to dialogue to unblock  political crisis

Democratic Party of Moldova is calling all parliamentary political parties to dialogue to unblock deep political crisis in which the Republic of Moldova is caught. DPM's deputy chairman Andrian Candu made this announcement after a meeting that the leadership of Democratic Party had with the EU ambassadors, where current political situation was discussed.

"Considering legal provisions of the Constitution and the recent rulings of the Constitutional Court, we are now in a legal blockade. This blockade is dangerous because it may have a negative impact on state institutions that work based on law. During these days, we have also analysed the experience of other countries. We do not have legal solutions, because the rulings of the Constitutional Court are binding and cannot be reviewed or cancelled. In order not to go into this blockade even deeper, the political class must identify political solutions, as all international partners have also recommended", stated Andrian Candu.

To initiate dialogue and to avoid escalation of tensions, DPM invited parliamentary political parties – PSRM and ACUM Block - to discussions. In this sense, Democratic Party set up a team of negotiators, led by DPM's deputy chairman, Vlad Cebotari. Shortly, they will contact colleagues from the three factions to call them to dialogue.

Andrian Candu expressed DPM's availability to discuss a broad spectrum of subjects related to identifying legal ways out of the current political blockade.

Andrian Candu also called politicians to withstand from escalating tensions and from promoting speculations.
