The former prime minister said that Moldova should not become part of the European Union under any circumstances

The former Prime Minister Ion Chicu expressed concerns about Moldova holding a referendum to join the EU without understanding the conditions for accession, stressing the associated risks. The Constitutional Court of Moldova approved the integration provisions on April 16.

The former Prime Minister Ion Chicu, chairman of the Development and Unification Party of Moldova, warned that the Moldovan authorities plan to have a referendum to join the EU without knowing the terms, which has significant risks.

The Constitutional Court of Moldova approved adding provisions about European integration to the constitution and scheduling a referendum, possibly on October 20, to coincide with the presidential election, according to President Maia Sandu.

He believes that voting in favor of the referendum would lead to giving majority discretion over important decisions and laws affecting the country's sovereignty, posing significant risks.

Referendum on EU integration is necessary when the conditions for entry are known. We are not going to join somewhere at any cost,” Chicu said.

 


His party's representatives will educate citizens about the potential outcomes of participating in the referendum, as per his statement.

“Voting “for” means that a name will appear in the constitution that leaves simple decisions to the discretion of the majority, laws that affect the sovereignty of the country, that generally change course. In our opinion, these are very big risks. Referendum on EU integration is necessary when the conditions for entry are known. We are not going to join somewhere at any cost,” Chicu said.
