Plenum sends Lobby Law back to the Legal Commission until February 1



Deputies decided yesterday to send the bill draft that establishes the conditions under which lobby can be conducted back to the Legal Commission for analysis until February 1. The decision was made in the Chamber of Deputies plenum, upon Mircea Toader, PDL leader’s proposal, by 119 votes in favour and one vote against. Toader underlined that even though the law is necessary, “there are some shortcomings” that need to be corrected. Bogdan Ciuca, Chairman of the Legal Commission, stated “the law is very good and can be improved, and there have been requests to bring amendments to it.” The Legal Commission of the Chamber of Deputies had adopted the bill draft late Monday. “We must regulate this lobby activity very clearly and set this professional representation activity apart from a concealed attempt at influence peddling (…),” Ciuca said.
