Government cannot drop fuel tax

The Government cannot give up the Eurocent 7 fuel excise tax, because the already approved budget cannot be reopened or closed without this tax, said PM Victor Ponta, reports Mediafax. “… The European Commission and the International Monetary Fund said very clearly the budget cannot be reopened, and we do not intend that in the first place,” stressed Ponta. He added it is the right of the president to decide whether, under the circumstances, the memorandum with the IMF will not be signed again.
