The postal voting draft law initiated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE) has been submitted to the Government for approval, the Communication Director of the ministry, Doris Mircea announced Wednesday, voicing the hope that the Parliament will adopt the law this autumn. “The draft law received green light from all institutions, was sent to the government and will be submitted to the approval of the Executive,” the MAE official explained, quoted by Mediafax.
PDL Deputy William Branza recently proposed Foreign Minister Teodor Baconschi to merge the MAE version of the act with the draft law conceived by himself and Raluca Turcan, which is already at the Chamber of Deputies, and urged the ministry to send its version to the Parliament without delay.
The Senate tacitly adopted, on May 9, a draft law that would enforce the postal vote for Romanian expatriates. The Law Committee of the Senate had proposed the Upper House to reject the draft law, because the Government had announced it has its own draft act with the same purpose.
