"The resignation of the government of Pavel Filip is the only possible and legitimate solution to prevent a political crisis," Vladimir Cebotari said in a televised briefing, Reuters reports.

Moldova has been in turmoil for the past week as two rival governments tussled for control of the east European country. Maia Sandu was nominated as Prime Minister last weekend, but Filip’s camp refused to recognize her government’s legitimacy.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Constitutional Court of Moldova last week suspended from office Moldovan President Igor Dodon. Presidential powers were delegated to former Prime Minister Pavel Filip. The Constitutional Court's move followed Dodon's failure to dissolve Parliament, which the Court said was a violation of the Basic Law.
