PSD considering attack on salary’ law at CC if no-confidence vote fails

The president of the Social-Democrat Party (PSD), Victor Ponta, claims that, if the no-confidence motion they intend to file after the Government takes responsibility on the blanket salary law should fail, Social-Democrats will contest the law at the Constitutional Court.

Ponta had a meeting with the trade union leaders on Tuesday, at the Palace of Parliament. Following talks, PSD leaders decided to file a no-confidence motion, expressing their opposition to the bill proposed by the Government, a project which is aimed at making permanent the 25 per cent public sector wage cuts. “If the no-confidence motion we are going to file fails to pass through the Parliament plenum, PSD intends to attack the public sector unified wages law at the Constitutional Court, because, obviously, enshrining the 25 per cent public sector wage cuts as permanent is an unconstitutional measure,” is stated in the release.

At the same time, PSD MPs will not propose amendments to the unified wages law. According to the same source, the blanket salary law will be abrogated the moment PSD accedes to Government and wages will revert to the values before the Boc Cabinet cuts. The Government is due to take responsibility on the blanket salary law in Parliament on December 14.
