The Constitutional Court (CC) partially accepted President Maia Sandu’s request to declare some of the provisions of the Law on the Government unconstitutional. The Court declared unconstitutional the provisions that ban the Government whose mandate ended from naming or proposing persons for public posts others than of ministers, IPN reports.
The CC held that until the law is amended, the Government whose mandate ended will be able to name or propose persons for public posts others than of ministers for a definite period of time, until the same or another person is named by an executive with full powers.
Also, the Court declared constitutional the provisions that ban the Government whose mandate ended from dismissing persons holding public posts or public servants, except for cases when the persons have objective reasons that prevent them from fulfilling their duties.
The request to check the constitutionality of the provisions stipulating that the Government whose mandate ended does not have the right to sign international treaties that imply financial commitments for the Republic of Moldova and of provisions concerning the holding of the post of Prime Minister on an interim basis was dismissed as inadmissible.
The CC decision is final, takes effect when it is adopted and is published in the Official Gazette.
