The President of the Constitutional Court of Moldova addressed the opening of the XIX Congress of the Conference of European Constitutional Courts

In a state governed by the rule of law, the institution of the Constitutional Court (CC) is the most suitable to ensure the observance of the principles of balance of power and consolidation of democracy. This statement was made today by the President of the Constitutional Court of Moldova, Domnica Manole, at the opening of the XIX Congress of the Conference of European Constitutional Courts, which is taking place on May 22-23 in Chisinau.

“It is a great honor for the CC of the Republic of Moldova to organize such an important event in the context of assuming on February 25, 2021, for a three-year term the presidency of the European Constitutional Courts. The Republic of Moldova is a small state with great aspirations to integrate into the European Union. Recently, the Constitutional Court gave a positive opinion on the draft amendment of the Constitution by referendum, including an article aimed at the country’s European integration aspirations. We hope that the population will approve this desire and that joining the EU will be the only real choice for Moldova,” Manole said.

President Maia Sandu attended the event and spoke about the role of legislative acts in consolidating the state’s democracy.


“The protection and freedom of citizens is a priority in Moldova’s development agenda, so European integration requires us to be resolute in our actions. In October, citizens will write history by participating in a referendum on the country’s European integration. Joining the EU means democracy, economic prosperity, and integrated institutions,” Maia Sandu said.

More than 100 foreign delegates, presidents and judges of European constitutional courts, observers, and guests of honor, including high-ranking representatives: President of the European Court of Human Rights Shiofra O’Leary, President of the Venice Commission Claire Bazi Malori, representatives of the Court of Justice of the European Union, associations of constitutional courts of linguistic and regional groups – Association of French-speaking Constitutional Courts, Union of Arab Constitutional Courts and Councils, Conference of African Constitutional Courts and Councils, Association of French-speaking Constitutional Courts and Councils of Arab Constitutional Courts attended the event.
