CHISINAU, September 24 — RIA Novosti. The constitutional court of Moldova ruled that the Parliament speaker or the Prime Minister instead of the President Igor Dodon to appoint two members of the government; thus, the court temporarily suspended the powers of the President on the issue, said Monday the Chairman of the constitutional court, Mihai Poalelungi.
Earlier, Prime Minister Pavel Filip has invited President Dodon the appointment of two new Ministers. Minister of health, labour and social protection was planned to appoint Sylvia Rada, the Minister of agriculture and regional development — Nicholas Shank. In this he opposed those candidates.

Dodon three were suspended from duties and two times it was due to the refusal to approve the nominations of Ministers — in October 2017 and January 2018, when he twice rejected the candidates proposed by the government under the leadership of Philip. Decrees appointing new Ministers were signed by the speaker of Parliament Andrian CANDU.
