New no-confidence motion on Wage Law looms

The vice-president of the PNL group in the Chamber of Deputies, Eugen Nicolaescu said Wednesday, during a debate with trade union representatives, that his party will initiate a fresh no-confidence motion if the Government takes responsibility in Parliament for the draft Public Sector Wage Law, Mediafax reports. “If the (Wage) Law is adopted by taking responsibility, we’ll file a no-confidence motion, because something like this cannot go unsanctioned. If they choose a regular Parliament procedure, we’ll bring amendments,” Nicolaescu told the trade unionists, whom he invited to suggest PNL how its groups should act in Parliament to correct this draft law. Nicolaescu added that the draft Wage Law is a “deceiving” act, because the Government will use it to hide the fact that it will not restore salaries to the levels before the 25 pc cut – a legal solution found by the Executive to avoid a Constitutional Court decision. The deputy leader of the PNL group also mentioned that the draft Wage Law leads to instability and encourages competent people to leave the system, while the salary levels proposed by the government reflect the pressure put by various groups of interests upon authorities, rather than the successful experience of other countries. After consultations at Cotroceni, Premier Emil Boc said on Tuesday that he does not rule out the possibility of taking responsibility for the Wage Law, but the final decision belongs to the coalition. During an interview granted Monday night to the public television, President Traian Basescu was asked whether the government will take responsibility in Parliament for the Wage Law. “There’s nothing else they can do,” he answered.
