September 2 (SeeNews) - Moldova's acting President Vladimir Voronin has resigned, Russian news agency RIA Novosti reported on Wednesday.
After his resignation Voronin will focus on his work as member of the parliamentary group of the Communist Party, RIA Novosti quoted an unnamed member of the party's central committee as saying.
Under the Moldovan constitution, the functions of president go to Parliament Speaker Mihai Ghimpu.
Voronin, who is Communist Party leader, is barred by the constitution from seeking a third four-year term of office after occupying the top position since 2001.
Communist controls 48 of the 101 seats in parliament after the July 29 snap elections.
The other four pro-West opposition parties, which entered the chamber, control a combined 53 seats. The Liberal Party, PL, the Democratic Party, PDM, the Liberal Democratic Party, PLDM, and Our Moldova" Alliance, AMN, created a government coalition in August. The four parties have enough votes to form a government of their own but are short of the 61-seat majority needed to elect the new head of state who will nominate the prime minister.
