The permanent Bureau of the Chamber of Deputies decided yesterday to limit the access of outside persons in the plenum of the Chamber while the MPs will have access only on badges or insignias, the reporters will be able to stay only for a short period and the cameramen, throughout the sessions. The chairman of the Chamber of Deputies, Valeriu Zgonea, said this after the meeting of the leadership of the Chamber, showing that these measures were taken having in view the incident last week, when the president of the New Republic Party, Mihail Neamtu, entered the plenum room and disrupted the speech of the Prime Minister Victor Ponta.
Zgonea said that following this incident, the head of the Internal Affairs Directorate lost his position, while three employees of the Chamber who allowed Neamtu to enter the hall will be penalized. The Permanent Bureau will ask Remus Cernea to fire his employees, paid form the Chamber money, who helped Mihail Neamtu to enter the Parliament and, if Cernea refuses to do so, these employees will no longer have access to the Chamber.
Valeriu Zgonea explained that the TV reporters will have access to the plenum only for a short period of time, “for the live transmissions”, with the approval of the meeting chairman, and the rest of the time they will be able to listen to the speeches from the balconies, while the cameramen will have access throughout the meeting.
