The Action and Solidarity Party, led by Maya Sandu, elected president of Moldova, asks the government to revoke the 2021 draft fiscal policy and present a new document that, in her opinion, meets the needs of the people, the vice-chairman of the political platform Igor Grossu said at a briefing on Wednesday.
Earlier, Sandu said that the current Cabinet of Ministers should resign, but before that to develop a draft fiscal policy so as not to exacerbate the economic crisis in the country.
“The Action and Solidarity faction asks the government to revoke the draft fiscal policy and present a new version that will meet people’s needs. We demand that the new draft of fiscal policy help people, not bury them in poverty,” Gros said.
According to him, the project was not presented for public discussion, as it is usually done. In addition, it contains items not related to taxes or the budget, for example, a new definition of the word “contraband”. Grossou said that the government did not provide any support to economic agents during the pandemic crisis and now wants to continue pushing them.
The Vice-Speaker of the Parliament Alexander Slusar noted at the briefing that the draft of the fiscal policy entered the Parliament only on Tuesday night and many people didn’t have time to get acquainted with it, and the leadership of the Parliament wants to bring the document for discussion in the first reading on Thursday. Slusar asked to give MPs more time to study the project.
The Moldovan government approved the draft fiscal policy at the end of November. If the document is approved by the Parliament in the original version, next year the state budget revenues will be about 2,5 billion dollars, the expenses will exceed 2,9 billion dollars. The deficit of the state budget will make up about 425 million dollars.
