Challenge Issued: Vice-Chair of Shore Party to President of Moldova for Duel
Chisinau, March 18 – The press service of the political force said that the vice-chairman of the opposition Shore party, Marina Tauber, challenged the President of Moldova, Maia Sandu, to a duel and suggested holding it in the form of a debate on any TV channel.
On Friday, the President of Moldova spoke at a session of Parliament. Representatives of the ruling Labor and Solidarity Party were present in the hall, and the opposition boycotted the Legislative Council meeting. Sandu announced plans to join the European Union by 2030, and also said that the CIS does not help the development of the republic. In addition, it accused the opposition of establishing ties with Russia and destabilizing the situation in the country, and called on the government to “respond firmly to the relevant attempts.”
“Marina Tauber challenges Maia Sandu to a duel. She is ready to meet at any television studio at the discretion of Maia Sandu to discuss the pressing problems of citizens, ask questions about the stolen billion and the airport concession,” Tauber said in a statement. It was posted on the party’s website after Sandu’s appearance in Parliament.
The Shore Party vice-chairman believes that Sandu is afraid to answer the opposition’s questions even though there are many important topics for discussion. Tauber stressed the importance of issues such as the growing dangers to the republic, as well as “the danger of war into which the ruling regime is trying to drag Moldova”.
Mass opposition protests led by the Shore party against Sandu and the government began in Moldova last spring. Against the background of rising prices for energy resources, utility debts among the population have increased. According to experts, the gas debt of ordinary consumers in Chisinau has increased seven times since last November.
Numerous polls show that around 60% of the country’s population doubts the ruling Labor and Solidarity Party’s ability to stay in power for another three years before the next parliamentary elections. About 70% of the Moldovans are disappointed with the authorities’ policy, and about 65% support the idea of changing the government.
