The Parliament of Moldova has declined the vote of non-confidence in Pavel Filip’s Cabinet.
Only 30 MPs voted for the Cabinet’s resignation, reports Publika.
The author of the initiative was the parliamentary group of the Party of Socialists.
Filip respects democratic rules and the right of opposition to express non-confidence in those in power but believes that the authors of this initiative aimed just to cause chaos and instability in the country so as to be able to come into power.
The vote of non-confidence was filed by 34 MPs on July 22. 24 of them were Socialists, 7 were Liberal Democrats and 3 were Communists. 4 of the 7 Liberal Democrats were absent when the Parliament was voting on the initiative.
Earlier, the Socialists said that they would file personal votes of non-confidence in Cabinet members.
The parliament has already declined such votes against Education Minister Corina Fusu, Defense Minister Anatol Salaru, Finance Minister Octavian Armasu, Transport and Road Infrastructure Minister Iurie Chirinciuc, Social Labor, Family and Social Protection Minister Stella Grigoras and Justice Minister Vladimir Cebotari.
