The Democratic Party of Moldova decided at a meeting of the National Political Council on Friday that the government of Pavel Filip dismissed by President Igor Dodon will have to resign, the party’s deputy chairman, Vladimir Chebotar, said.

“The Democratic Party decided that the Moldovan government headed by Pavel Filip is resigning from today,” Chebotar told reporters at a briefing.

After the indecisive February parliamentary elections and three months of political stalemate, the Party of Socialists and right-wing pro-European bloc ACUM signed a cooperation agreement on June 8 to form a new government. Sandu was elected prime minister by the two parties. The Moldovan constitutional court ruled the parliamentary agreement unconstitutional.
