In an interview published on Wednesday, in the Russian weekly publication „SP” from Balti, Marian Lupu declares that „If I had been elected president by quite not a legitimate Parliament, it would not have been an honour for me”.

Asked whether the Democratic Party of Moldova (PDM), the faction which the former speaker joined to, will make coalition with the communists in some issues, including the election of head of state, Marian Lupu declared his faction will give preference to democratic and pro-European parties. Marian Lupu is certain that PDM will have mandates in the future Parliament.

Anyone appointed to the post of President without a legal government would be viewed as a fake by all democracies.
It seems the Communist party are blind to the fact that they have no mandate to appoint anyone to any post.
