The Commission for constitutional reform (Romanian: Comisia pentru reforma constituţională) is a commission instituted in Moldova by acting President Mihai Ghimpu to adopt a new version of the Constitution of Moldova (1994).

The commission for constitutional reform was set up under presidential decree (nr. 83) on 1 December 2009.


The Venice Commission of the Council of Europe will decide whether or not the Republic of Moldova really needs to adopt a new Constitution or to amend the 1994 Main Law, in particular to revise the existing procedure of electing president of the republic.[1][2]

According to Mihai Ghimpu, the new Constitution will be initially adopted by the Parliament by 50+1 votes. A national referendum will be held afterward where the people will express their opinions on the new Constitution. The referendum could take place by June 16.[3]

The name of the official language will be also modified. According to Ghimpu, Romanian language must be the official language of Moldova. The possible constitutional reform will not cover the country's neutrality policy and the functioning of the state of law, Ghimpu added.[4]
