Moldovan PM: No reasons for govt's resignation
Moldovan Prime Minister Valeriu Strelet sees no reasons for the government to resign.
Speaking to journalists before a regular Cabinet meeting on Wednesday regarding protesters' demand that the parliament be dissolved and early elections called, Strelet said, "This could lead to the threatening destabilization of the situation with unpredictable consequences."
"The government's resignation could cause a number of systemic problems and end up in a collapse. I don't understand why they demand the government's resignation. We have done huge work in six weeks to lay the groundwork for processes intended to resolve the problems mentioned by the protesters themselves. We have managed to eliminate the debt on subsidies for agricultural workers and avoid the deprivation of our country of the right to issue the Green Card insurance. We have initiated the procedure of the liquidation of banks involved in the embezzlement of billions," Strelet said.
The prime minister said he was willing to meet with protesters within the next few days to discuss all problems, listen to their demands, and look for compromise solutions.
