In Moldova, the opposition is boycotting a parliament session.

The meeting of the Moldovan Parliament on Friday is held without representatives of the opposition political forces, who are boycotting it in protest, only the ruling Action and Solidarity party and two independent deputies are present in the hall.

“At the beginning of the meeting, the presence of 55 deputies was registered,” such data was presented in the secretariat of the parliament.

On Thursday, the deputies of the Bloc of Communists and Socialists (BCS), opposition in Moldova, left the parliament session hall in protest against the ruling majority ignoring the proposal to hear the opposition’s legislative initiatives.

Deputies from the BCS demanded to hear the report of the Prime Minister of Moldova, Dorin Recean, as well as the Minister of Labor and Social Protection, Alexei Buza, on the issue of salary delays for personal assistants. In addition, the opposition demanded that the draft on the creation of a Center for Combating Propaganda and the initiative to withdraw from a number of agreements within the CIS be excluded from the agenda of the parliamentary meeting.

Another opposition faction, from the banned Shor party, has been boycotting meetings of the legislative assembly since the beginning of the year “as a sign of protest against the abuse of power against the parliamentary opposition.”

In Moldova, the opposition has been holding anti-government protests for more than a year, insisting on the resignation of the Cabinet and President Maia Sandu, who is the informal leader of the ruling Action and Solidarity party. The demonstrators accuse the country’s authorities of being unable to cope with the crisis in the economy and the energy sector.
