The last meeting of the Municipal Council of Chisinau has been put off because of no quorum. Acting Mayor Silvia Radu called the council members to be more disciplined next time.
“I would like to personally ask the council members to be in time during the next meeting because they get money for this job and because they must prefer the interests of the Chisinau residents to their own political interests,” Radu said.
The members from the Party of Socialists, Our Party and Liberal Party have refused to attend the council’s meetings. “Illegitimate mayor, old corrupt agenda, land plots, rent, buildings, bonuses for those who don’t work,” the leader of the Socialists Ion Ceban says on his page in the social network.
Only 6 out of 51 members were present during the last meeting. Radu said that if the boycott was aimed against her, she was ready to discuss the situation. “Let them file a petition that they don’t want me to be present at the meetings. I would have been absent had they asked me not to come because the interests of the Chisinau citizens are more important to me than my personal ambitions,” Radu said.
She urged the council members to forget their political contradictions and to deal with the problems concerning the residents of the Moldovan capital.
As EADaily reported earlier, on Nov 6, Acting Mayor of Chisinau Nistor Grozavu said that former President of Gas Natural Fenosa Moldova Silvia Radu and member of the European People’s Party Ruslan Codreanu had been appointed as deputy mayors and that he had resigned as mayor. So, now acting mayor is Radu and Grozavu and Codreanu are her deputies.
