President’s question to Moldovan citizens: “Do you consider it necessary for the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova to pass a bill on the refusal to switch to winter time?”


The President of the Republic of Moldova, Igor Dodon, wrote on his page on the social network that he recently received numerous questions from our citizens about whether Moldova was considering the possibility of refusing to switch to winter time, as was done in the European Union.

Recall that in March 2019, the European Parliament decided to cancel the switch to winter time from 2021. Thus, the clock hands in the EU countries will be moved one hour forward on the last Sunday of March 2021 for the last time.

We also note that Russia and Belarus did this in 2011. In 2016, Turkey refused winter time.

Georgia and Kazakhstan did the same in 2005, the four republics of Central Asia in the early 90s. Armenia canceled daylight saving time in 2012.

Currently, Ukraine, following the European Union, is also considering the abolition of winter time from 2021.

Thus, all the former Soviet republics, all the major trade and economic partners of the Republic of Moldova abandoned the practice or are considering such an opportunity.

In this regard, I consider it necessary to put forward the question for public discussion: “Do you consider it necessary for the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova to adopt a draft law on refusal to switch to winter time?”
The President of the Republic wrote.
