MPs extend public radio leadership term

Parliament’s joint chambers yesterday unanimously decided to extend until June 30 the public radio’s (SRR) management team term. The decision also stipulates procedures towards assigning a new SRR Board of Administrators are suspended. This provision was proposed by the deputy leader of the National Liberal Party (PNL) group, Eugen Nicolaescu, who grounded his initiative in all legislative groups seeking to depoliticize the leadership structures of the SRR and the Romanian Public Television Company (SRTV).

Marton Arpad, a deputy with the Democratic Union of Hungarians in Romania (UDMR) criticized the proposal, which he described as redundant, yet Chamber of Deputies Speaker Roberta Anastase backed it, saying procedures to appoint a new SRR Board of Administrators would be futile, given the need to depoliticize the institution first. In his turn, Social-Democrat Victor Socaciu, expressed the PSD group’s agreement with the SRR and SRTV leaderships being depoliticized and the SRR leadership mandate extended until June 30.

Initially, Parliament passed April 30 the 2008 SRR activity report, and extended until April 15 President-General Director Maria Toghina’s term in office.
