87pc of Romanians wants sanctions against absentee MPs

Most Romanians are disappointed with their elected lawmakers and think politics is just a way of making profit for their representatives in Parliament, a survey quoted by Realitatea.net reveals. The survey, interviewing 3,500 people between February 24 and March 9, reveals that an overwhelming number of respondents, 87 per cent, think lawmakers who skip Parliament sessions should be sacked. Moreover, 74 per cent of those interviewed think lawmakers’ activities and their attitude in Parliament reflects the wish of their parties, not that of voters.


A total of 76 per cent of respondents said the current political class is not mature and responsible enough to manage problems of public concern, while 83 per cent think political debates are only about personal attacks, politicians’ public discourses lacking any real ideological reasoning and arguments. The survey came a day after the NGO Institute for Public Policies made public a report about lawmakers’ activity and who are the most notable absences from Parliament works. At the Senate, Liberal leader Crin Antonescu has the highest number of absences, even more than Social Democrat Catalin Voicu, who is on remand, the report shows. The Chamber of Deputies’ truancy chart is opened by Democrat Liberal Monica Iacob Ridzi (who is known to suffer from severe health problems), followed by Social Democrats Doru Laurian Frunzulica, Viorel Hrebenciuc and Bogdan Niculescu Duvaz. The IPP survey was conducted between December 19 2008 and March 9, 2011.
