Motion on transport repealed

Opposition Social Democrat Party’s (PSD) regular motion on transport was repealed, on Monday, in the Senate, drawing only 47 votes “in favour”, while 65 senators voted against it, and one withheld. For the motion to pass, it would have had to draw at least 69 votes “in favour”. Liberals supported PSD’s motion, while the independent group announced they would not back it because it was not “a current issue”. In the motion titled “Transports in Romania, pulled over by right-wing ruling party,” Social-Democrats urged for the resignation of Transport Minister Radu Berceanu, accusing him of having destroyed transport infrastructure, by “faulty management”.

In the assembly, Berceanu rejected accusations made against him during debates on the motion, arguing that dialogue between Parliament and the ministry had to be continued. Moreover, he said that, should an investigative commission be set up, he would “gladly” come before it to discuss all aspects related to transport.
