A consultative constitutional referendum was held in Moldova on 23 May 1999.[1] It was initiated by President Petru Lucinschi and asked voters whether they approved of changing the system of government to a presidential system.[2] The proposal was approved by 64.2% of voters. However, the Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova and the Alliance for Democracy and Reforms opposed Lucinschi, and were able to vote several constitutional changes through parliament on 5 July 2000. The changes reduced the powers of the president and strengthened the parliament and government.[3]


Would you be in favour of changing the constitution with the scope to install a presidential system in the Republic of Moldova in which the president of the Republic would be responsible for the formation and leadership of the government as well as for the results of the governing of the country?[2]
