Erase and Rewind: Moldova’s Constitutional Reform - Stanislav Secrieru dla ECFR
07 KWI 2016
The head of state elected in 2016 will have more popular legitimacy than predecessors elected by parliament. The new president will claim that he was voted not by 61 MPs, but by thousands of ordinary citizens. At the same time, the new head of state will still enjoy limited powers (mainly in defence and foreign affairs) as the constitutional court reversed the procedure of electing the head of state, unlike Ukraine’s court which reinstated previously curbed presidential powers in 2010 - napisał dr Stanislav Secrieru dla European Council on Foreign Relations.
