The Moldovan party “National Alternative Movement” (MAN) supported the idea of holding a referendum on the country’s accession to the EU, the leader of the political force, the mayor of Chisinau, Ion Ceban, said on Tuesday.
On Sunday, the administration of the head of the Moldovan president announced that Maia Sandu intends to run for a second term, in addition, she put forward an initiative to the parliament to organize a referendum so that citizens could express their opinion on the republic’s accession to the European Union.
“The National Alternative Movement party believes that a referendum on this topic represents the highest form of democracy and the will of the people, but criticizes the ruling party’s way of managing the country’s European integration process,” Cheban wrote on his Telegram channel.
The mayor of Chisinau believes that society in Moldova needs to be consolidated around the idea of European integration in order to introduce European standards in practice. At the same time, Cheban believes that the actions of the ruling Action and Solidarity party contradict these same standards.
