Draft law suggests psychiatric tests for public office runners

Five independent Senators have come up with a draft law that would introduce compulsory psychiatric tests for candidates for public offices and local administration offices, for high civil servants and Ministers, ‘Gandul’ daily informs.

The five independent Senators propose the compulsory nature of presenting a medical note concerning the candidates’ physical and mental health and an annual medical checkup in the case of persons already holding public offices. The five also want Presidential candidates to undergo such psychological and psychiatric examinations. The government however claims that such a procedure violates the Constitution and the confidentiality of data principle and that it would be “excessive” for the Head of State and MPs to lose their terms in office unless they undergo this annual checkup.
