A new article named "The Integration into the European Union" may appear in the Moldovan Constitution. The idea comes from President Nicolae Timofti. He has made the statement at the ceremony dedicated to the Constitution Day. It has turned 22 years today since the adoption of the Supreme Law.
"Moldova made an important step on June 27, 2014, when it signed the Association Agreement with the EU. What I wish most of all is to insert a novelty into the original text of the Constitution: a distinct article on the integration into the EU," Nicolae Timofti stated.
"We must recognize that the politicians had the task to solve this problem and not to admit a possible political crisis. But it was the Constitutional Court, which broke the vicious chain, reestablishing the citizens’ rights to elect their president. I want to congratulate the whole team of the Constitutional Court. As Nelson Mandela said: If we don’t change, we don’t grow, if we don’t grow, we don’t live. We can change ourselves so that Moldova may live freely," said Parliament President Andrian Candu.
"After we took Moldova, back in January, in a very difficult moment, I hope we’ll get completely used to stability. We want nor political, neither constitutional crises. On this historic day, I want to thank all the ones from the Constitutional Court, who have contributed to the consolidation of our young democracy. Every year brings new experiences, new decisions of the Constitutional Court, new trends in the constitutional doctrine," premier Pavel Filip said.
"The Moldovan Constitution represents the link joining together different human groups within a state. Protecting minorities is a primordial task of the Constitution. Speaking of minorities, I do not refer only to national, religious, linguistic minorities," said the chairman of the Constitutional Court, Alexandru Tănase.
