Oprescu, unhappy with General Council

Bucharest General Mayor Sorin Oprescu yesterday said that if the political interests and the crisis within the General Council do not cease he will resort to referendums when it comes to Bucharest’s main projects. “For a month now I have been running up against the political machinations of the General Council members who, by obstructing the projects within the General Council, are doing nothing but creating chaos,” Sorin Oprescu said.

According to the Bucharest General Mayor, the City Hall’s important projects have been postponed or disregarded by the General Council “for over a month.” Oprescu pointed out that among his blocked projects were those concerning the norms of sanitation, the removal of abandoned cars, protocols of collaboration with other European capitals and the operating regulations of the administrative apparatus he is in charge of. “The measures I should have taken in what concerns Bucharest’s sanitation, my own administrative apparatus, the cars abandoned on public spaces and other important projects were blocked. I found funds for building kindergartens however the financing was not approved. It’s no kind of emergency for them (the members of the Council – editor’s note), everything can be postponed,” Oprescu added. The General Council meeting was suspended after six hours on Monday, with only 15 of the 63 projects on its agenda having been discussed. The PDL members of the Council left the meeting before the debate on projects concerning Bucharest’s sanitation.
