Position of Party of communists on political crisis in Republic Moldova, performance of the leader of communists of Vladimir Voronina. The first. We are satisfied by that circumstance, that the Alliance has refused the plans of termless board Moldova. The main caricature of our current political life - Гимпу with its ases in sleeves leaves in a non-existence. At last the society had a hope of changes, there was a chance to take advantage of the democratic right to a choice, chance to return Moldova on a way of stable and worthy development. Mass protests of May have clearly shown to the Alliance scales of increasing internal political escalation and intensity, readiness of our people for protection of the interests. These protests have definitively made sober those who was ready to correct Moldova contrary to the Constitution and the law. We hope, yesterday this problem has been solved. Also it is a huge merit of those who, not having been afraid reprisals and punishments, left on streets of the Moldavian cities. And it means also what such way of democratic, public pressure upon the power remains to the most effective in the conditions of board of similar Alliances.
The second. Yesterday the power one more decision - the decision on change of the Constitution by a referendum was accepted. And this decision has been supported by the Council of Europe. Thereupon the Party of communists declares the following. Preservation of parliamentary republic, election of the President as Parliament we always considered not only as the tool of internal political stability, but also as unconditional European value as the obligation to our European partners - to move in the same direction in which the majority of the European democracies moves. Yes, the opinion of the Moldavian society into this account can be other as show interrogations the majority of our citizens supports direct election of the president. But, as is known, the majority of our society so categorically supports death penalty restoration. Both in the first and in the second case this opinion of the majority was perceived as a reality which demands additional efforts on an explanation, on its change. Was considered, that only long-term democratic practice in a condition to overcome these known public dogmas. For this reason in the heat of political crisis the Party of communists has counted expedient to operate in strict conformity with the European recommendations, leaning on the European norms and standards. In conformity with them our party has offered the project of changes of 78 articles of the Constitution which untied any possible crisis situations in the future.
Yesterday all of us became witnesses of how representatives of the Council of Europe have openly refused an own position. To find out the reasons of such turn, to establish preconditions of refusal of the European structures from own recommendations is not the competence of Party of communists. It is important, that yesterday the Council of Europe has relieved Party of communists of following of one of the most unpopular in the Moldavian society of the European theories. And we for it are grateful to them. If the Council of Europe considers possible not to follow in Moldova to the European standards it means, as the Moldavian democracy in the future will find way out of crises, leaning on own experience and opinion of the people. Since this moment the Party of communists openly declares, that becomes on a position of the active political support of a society in a question of election of the head of the state. That is, we support direct presidential elections.
The third. In the developed conditions, obviously knowing opinion of the Moldavian voters concerning transition to direct elections of the head of the state, the Party of communists suggests not to waste time and means for referendum carrying out on change of 78 articles of the Constitution. For the sake of the prompt overcoming of political crisis and the announcement of date of early election, the Party of communists is ready to vote in this Parliament for the offered legislative initiative about direct election of the head of the state. It also will be that consensus which waits all Moldavian society.
The party of communists removes the protest agenda the next weeks and expects a prompt reply on the given question from the Alliance. Concerning fraction PKRM returning in Parliament this decision will be accepted exclusively after the Party of communists will have reliable acknowledgement on readiness to dismiss Parliament and to appoint date of elections.
