Some more equal

Moldova's constitution demands equal treatment for all citizens.  Moldovan law, however, segregates citizens into two differnt groups, and gives one group an additional right compared to the other group.

Those who became citizens by birth in Moldova, or by the fact of their residence in the country at independence, have the right to hold the citizenships of other countries as well as Moldova.

On the other hand, those who become Moldovan citizens by naturalisation are required to give up all other citizenships.

This differential treatment of citizens is unfair and unconstitutional.  Parliament should act to make the rules on multiple citizenship the same for all.
