More fight in Parliament over Constitution

PDL vice president Ioan Oltean said that, opposing the setting up of a commission on Constitution revision, PSD and PNL are attempting to undermine PDL’s attempt to respect people’s will expressed by referendum. Ioan Oltean declared, in a press conference, that PDL does not want the amendment of Constitution only in terms of unicameral Parliament and reduction of the number of MPs, which are actually settled through an organic law not through Constitution, it is also the supporter of a far-reaching revision of Constitution.

“This revision will include, first of all, the article from Constitution which refers to the bicameral Parliament, in order to turn it into a unicameral Parliament. We have already had the first initiatives proposing the Parliament of Romania to set up a commission on Constitution revision following the same procedural steps that we made in 2002-2003, when Constitution was revised. Unfortunately, PSD and PNL opposed this initiative trying to undermine and to overlook the people’s will saying that the vote is consultative, not imperative,” Oltean said.
