Moldovan Parliament Cut Presidential Powers after Sandu Was Elected
OREANDA-NEWS. The Parliament of Moldova approved the withdrawal of the Information and Security Service from the subordination of the President of the country and transferred control over it to the national legislature, that is, to itself.
“The majority of the deputies in the first reading approved the transfer of the Information and Security Service under the control of the Parliament,” deputy speaker from the Party of Socialists, Vlad Batrincea said.
The Information and Security Service was already subordinate to the Parliament, but in 2019 it was reassigned to the President. However, in November 2020, the socialists made a proposal to return the control of the legislature over this agency, since the country’s president-elect, Maia Sandu, has dual citizenship (Moldovan and Romanian).
