According to this draft, the words “Moldavian language” in any grammatical form are replaced by “Romanian language”. In addition, the words “state language”, “official language” and “native language” are replaced by the words “Romanian” if the state language of Moldova means.

The Bloc of Communists and Socialists calls on all concerned Moldovans and civic activists to take part in the protest.
The Constitutional Court of Moldova decided in 2013 that the state language of the republic is Romanian. At the same time, the country’s constitution states that the state language is Moldovan. According to the Constitutional Court, the text of the Declaration of Independence of Moldova, in which the state language is Romanian, takes precedence over the Constitution of the Republic.
