Moldovan prime minister candidate Ion Sturza announced Saturday he had submitted a new list of government’s members and his program to parliament speaker Andrian Candu.
CHISINAU (Sputnik) – Members of Moldova’s parliament are scheduled to consider the approval of the new government on January 4, and by that time a new cabinet’s action plan should be presented.
“List of candidates for the posts of ministers and the government’s program were sent to the speaker of the parliament. Tomorrow we will sign a declaration of integrity on our own responsibility,” Sturza wrote on his Facebook account.
On December, 21, 2015, Moldova’s President Nicolae Timofti signed a decree on appointing Sturza as the country’s prime minister.
The previous government, headed by Liberal Democrat Valeriu Strelet, stepped down under pressure from opposition parties on October 29.
The Moldovan capital of Chisinau has been gripped by major anti-government protests since early September. Activists have been demanding the resignation of the Moldovan president, prime minister and the chief prosecutor, while also calling for early parliamentary elections and prompt action to tackle corruption.
