Holiday breeze blowing through Parliament

The members of the Legislative did not get too much work done this week, one possible explanation being the pending Democrat Liberal Party (PDL) Congress. Thus, the Senate adjourned its assembly session one hour earlier, yesterday, as the Speaker of this Chamber found there was no quorum. The senators had previously taken a half-hour break for consultations, at the request of the National Liberal Party (PNL) senators’ leader, Puiu Hasotti, who had accused PDL representatives of violating a convention regarding collaboration among the groups. As a consequence, the senators managed, yesterday, to adopt a single law and one emergency ordinance out of the approximately 35 bills on the agenda.
The activity in the Lower Chamber has also been stalling lately. Yesterday, the Constitutional Court (CC) was supposed to address a notification filed by the opposition, which contested the National Union for Romanian Progress (UNPR)’s taking over the presidency of the Budget Committee, from the Social-Democrat Party (PSD). As the Chamber failed to forward its viewpoint on the matter, the CC judges were unable to issue a decision, adjourning it for May 18.
