Moldovan Presidential Constitutional Amendment, 2010
A Moldovan Presidential Constitutional Amendment question was voted on September 5, 2010 in the country of Moldova.
Not enough residents came out to vote to make this vote legal, one third of population were needed. Under Moldovan law, a similar measure cant be brought to another vote for at least two more years.
Due to the inability to form a coalition government, the popular parties in the government had set up this referendum vote to see if residents want to go back to a system where the country President is elected by popular vote. It had been a year and the elected members of parliament have been unable to form a government and elect a president. This constitutional amendment would have gone back to the system from when Moldova first became a country. The current communist party, which has the majority, feels that this is just a trick by the other parties and urged members to boycott. But other elected officials see this as the only other option to the government.
