Earlier, on February 23, the Constitutional Court of Moldova declared unconstitutional the decree of President Maia Sandu on the reappointment of Natalia Gavrilitsa as Prime Minister.
The post of Prime Minister of Moldova remains vacant since December 2020. Sandu has nominated Gavrilitsa as a candidate for prime minister, who is also the vice-chairman of the pro-presidential Action and Solidarity Party.
The Moldovan parliament refused to support this appointment. On February 11, the Socialist Party and the parliamentary group Pentru Moldova formed a parliamentary majority for the nomination of ex-finance minister Marianna Durlesteanu for prime minister.
When Sandu again nominated Gavrilitsa as a candidate for prime minister, the socialists challenged this decision in the Constitutional Court.
