Details: 55 deputies of the ruling party “Action and Solidarity” (PAS) voted for the decision. Another 20 opposition MPs abstained, and one opposition MP voted against.


The authors of the bill changed the question to be put to a referendum. Instead of the question “Are you in favor of Moldova's accession to the EU?”, the ballot will contain the question: “Do you support the introduction of European integration into the Constitution of Moldova?” And there will be two answers: “Yes” and “No”.

One of the authors of the draft law on holding the referendum, PAS MP Veronica Rosca, added that the ballot will specify the specific changes that will be made to the Constitution if the majority of voters vote in favor of the referendum.
