Recean was appointed head of government by President Maia Sandu following the resignation of former Prime Minister Maia Gavrilica and her cabinet. In the past, Rechan served as head of the interior ministry and then adviser to the president on national security and defense.
“The new government will have three priorities: order and discipline, new life and economy, and peace and stability,” Rechan said of his cabinet’s program last week. He also promised that the new government will continue the course towards the integration of Moldova into the EU.
Rechan’s candidacy was approved by the votes of 62 of the 101 deputies of the Moldovan parliament. However, the opposition represented by the bloc of Communists and Socialists intends to challenge the decision.
According to the leader of the Party of Socialists of Moldova and deputy speaker of parliament Vlad Batryncha, violations were committed during the procedure for approving the new government. The opposition points out that the deputies’ right to speak was limited. The ruling majority in parliament approved amendments to the rules, according to which only two speakers from each faction could take part in the debate on the appointment of a new government.
