Senate blockage continues

Many senators of both Power and Opposition missed during yesterday’s debates in the Senate, so the session was suspended from lack of quorum, for the third time in a row. Only 49 senators attended the meeting, out of a minimum 69 needed to validate the vote. The Democrat Liberals pointed their fingers at the Opposition, which they accuse of blocking the activity of the Upper House. “Look at the Opposition’s benches. They are completely deserted. We were able to muster 30 something senators, but we cannot secure the quorum by ourselves,” PDL Senator Gabriel Berca accused. Two weeks ago, important draft laws initiated by the Government were either rejected or postponed, such as the law on promoting judges to the High Court of Cassation, which was rejected, or the Code of Social Assistance.
