Moldova Leader Pans His “Shameful” SuspensionMoldova Leader Pans His “Shameful” Suspension

Moldovan President Igor Dodon on Tuesday criticized a decision by the country’s constitutional court to suspend his powers temporarily due to a wrangle between him and the pro-Western government over ministerial appointments. “The court once again confirmed its image of an obedient political instrument, not a constitutional body. This is a shameful and regrettable fall for a state that claims to be democratic,” Dodon said in a Facebook post, Reuters reported. Igor Dodon is a Moldovan politician who has been the President of Moldova since 23 December 2016. Previously he was the leader of the Party of Socialists of the Republic of Moldova. He served as Minister of Trade and Economics in the governments of Vasile Tarlev and Zinaida Greceanii from September 2006 to September 2009 and was a member of the Parliament of Moldova from 2009 to 2016.
