Strasbourg, 16.03.2012 - Council of Europe Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland today welcomed the election of Nicolae Timofti as new Moldovan President.

 

“Today marks an important milestone in the history of the Republic of Moldova. I congratulate the political leaders for having found a compromise to elect the President, thus putting an end to the political crisis which has lasted for too long.

 

I very much welcome Nicolae Timofti's aspiration to be a President for all Moldovans, irrespective of their political opinions.

 

Now that the President is elected, it is time to fulfil the promises of economic and social reforms, to improve the rule of law and to ensure an efficient judiciary. The Council of Europe will continue to support Moldova with its reforms”, said Mr Jagland.
