MP Prigoana asks for parental leave

The Democrat Liberal Party (PDL) deputy Silviu Prigoana asked the Chamber of Deputies’ bureau for a two-year child-rearing leave, mentioning his son was born on December 10, 2010. Prigoana invoked this in the context in which new provisions of the parental leave law came in force in January 2011, reducing the term during which the child-rearing benefit is granted, from two years to one, if the beneficiary opts for a higher benefit. The MP’s decision is surprising, however, given that, at the time when the bill to reduce the parental leave was under debate, Prigoana pleaded, publicly and vehemently, for the reduction of this term to one year and six months, arguing that a prolonged leave undermines women’s professional training. The deputy’s wife, Adriana Bahmuteanu (a TV show host), argued, in turn, that she too wanted to return to work, which is why her husband asked for a leave.
