PSRM intends to pay special attention to the functioning of languages in Moldova
In 2018, the Constitutional Court of Moldova declared obsolete the Law No. 3465 of September 1, 1989 “On the Functioning of Languages in the Territory of Moldova”, which gave the Russian language the status of a language of interethnic significance. In addition, it guaranteed the use of Ukrainian, Russian, Bulgarian, Hebrew, Yiddish, Gypsy, and the languages of other ethnic groups living in the country. This fact angered many citizens living in Moldova.
A candidate for deputy from the Party of Socialists, Nikita Tsurcan, said at a press conference on Wednesday that Moldova was, was and would be a multi-ethnic state. There lived, and always will live, representatives of different nationalities.
“We will do everything so that everyone live in peace and harmony. We will give special status to the functioning of languages. The state language is Moldovan. We should not forget about the Russian language either, since it is the language of interethnic communication, officially,” said Tsurcan.
“No one has the right to incite discord and quarrel between people, just because they speak a different language and are of a different nationality. We will advocate that all those steps that this power is taking are stopped, and those who speculate on the theme of language are brought to justice. The theme of national minorities should be respected. The rights of all citizens must be respected. Today, unfortunately, this is not quite true. We will seek inter-ethnic peace in Moldova. Only then can Moldova become a prosperous country and will develop,” Tsurcan stressed.
in the 23 single-member constituencies, Oleg Lipkiy believes that it is necessary to promote the development of the country and give people the opportunity to live a normal life.
“The Party of Socialists provided for a 30% quota for representatives of national minorities. We will win together, we will come to the fact that people will start returning to the country, and Moldova will develop,” Oleg Lipski, a candidate for deputy from the PSRM, added.
The presidential adviser Maxim Lebedinsky informed that on Tuesday, the CEC decided to move the polling stations in Transnistria.
“As a result of this decision, about 230 people will have to drive 40-60 km to get to the polling station and vote. It is unacceptable. We will appeal the decision of the CEC,” he noted.
