The Moldovan Parliament on Thursday, at the request of the government, extended the state of emergency in the country for another 60 days.
“For” voted 60 deputies (out of 101) from the ruling party “Action and Solidarity” (PAS), reports Interfax.
Presenting the draft resolution, Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilitsa said that the main reason for the extension was the situation in Ukraine.
The state of emergency was introduced in Moldova on February 24 last year, then it was extended five times for 60 days, and once for 45 days. The last decision was made at the end of November, and the state of emergency expires on February 4.
