Moldovan parliament bans local referendums on issues of state importance

Ninety-eight percent of people who took part in the Gagauz referendum in February voted for Gagauzia’s accession to the Customs Union.

The deputies voted for amendments to the Code on Elections, which clearly divided the powers between the central and local authorities, at a meeting on Thursday. The ban concerns foreign and internal policy issues, taxation and other problems in Chisinau’s competence, the document says.

Le peuple Gagaouze n’est pas contre l’Europe. -95% des votants ayant soutenu une intégration dans l'Union douanière avec la Russie (un choix erroné)

Tel est le résultat de la visite officielle, ce 20 février, de Henri Malosse, Président du Comité économique et social, accompagné de l'Ambassadeur de l'UE en Moldavie, Pikka Tapiola, a Comrat, capitale de la Gagaouzie, une région autonome de la Moldavie.
Cette visite avait été organisée suite au référendum récent du 2 février en Gagaouzie, 95% des votants ayant soutenu une intégration dans l'Union douanière avec la Russie.
Le président du CESE a constaté que la question posée dans ce référendum présentait un choix erroné car la perspective européenne est une question de valeurs et non pas de choisir entre Bruxelles et Moscou. A cet égard, Henri Malosse a exprime son souhait que l’accord d’association ouvre une perspective claire d’intégration a l’Union européenne pour la Moldavie.
