Rompetrol memorandum Okayed by the Chamber of Deputies once again

The Chamber of Deputies rejected yesterday, with 203 votes for, 75 votes against and 6 abstentions, the request of President Traian Basescu to reject the law concerning the approval of the Agreement Memorandum signed between the Romanian state and Rompetrol, after the deputies adopted the initial law, Mediafax informs. During the debates, the PDL group leader, Mircea Toader said that the Ponta Government passed this law to avoid assuming responsibility in the Rompetrol case and that the Parliament is forced to provide a coverage for the Government. Toader said that the President was correct when he referred the law to the Parliament to be rejected. In response, the PSD group leader, Marian Neacsu, said that Traian Basescu referred the law to the Parliament for a matter of form, not of substance, and that this law is a priority for USL. The Chamber of Deputies is the first to be asked to review the law. According to this Agreement Memorandum signed on February 15, in Bucharest, KazMunaiGaz can redeem the Ministry of Economy with 200 million dollars for a package of 26.69 per cent of the Rompetrol Rafinare shares.
