CHISINAU – Moldovan President Igor Dodon said that a consultative referendum, which he had initiated on the issue of vesting the president with additional constitutional powers to dissolve the parliament, will take place.

“The referendum scheduled for September 24 will take place. I will insist on it, as it is a consultative referendum, and the president has the right to learn the people’s opinion,” Dodon told reporters, commenting on the decision of the Council of Europe’s Venice Commission regarding the change of the electoral system in Moldova and the extension of the president’s powers in the dissolution of the parliament.

“We’ll see what the people’s opinion is, but I firmly believe it would be a positive one. Following it we will find the best formula in accordance with European practices for the president to dissolve the parliament and announce a snap election in the country,” he said.
