President Basescu promulgates budget law

President Traian Basescu signed on Thursday the decrees on the promulgation of the state budget law for 2013 and of the state social insurances budget law for 2013, the Presidency announced. The two budget laws had been adopted by Parliament on February 7. PDL attacked the state budget law at the Constitutional Court. The Constitutional Court unanimously decided last week that the law is constitutional, turning down the appeal filed by the Democrat-Liberal Party. PDL had attacked the state budget law at the Constitutional Court, invoking three arguments concerning the failure to respect Parliamentary procedures during the debates within the two Chambers’ joint plenum, as well as an argument concerning the 2013 budget’s lack of predictability. PDL President Vasile Blaga had previously stated that the state budget law was adopted while the quorum had not been met and PDL would attack the document at the Constitutional Court.
