Parliament extraordinary session could be convened last week of Aug

Senate Vice Chairman, Social Democrat Ioan Chelaru told AGERPRES on Thursday that the Opposition filed a request with the Parliament calling for an extraordinary session to re-discuss the law for a cut in the social security contributions (CAS) by 5 percentage points, adding that in his opinion, this session will be most likely held the last week of the parliamentary recess.

‘Indeed, this request was filed. That’s what I heard last night [Wednesday]. The Social Democratic Party is in favour. A Standing Bureau is to be convened. According to a tradition I have known for ten years, since I am an MP, the sittings convened during the parliamentary recess, were usually held the first week of the recess or the last week. From this point of view, I believe there will be no problem if an extraordinary session is held the last week [of August],’ Ioan Chelaru said.

However, Chelaru explained that the difficulty in convening the MPs in extraordinary session regards the fact that many of them are still on vacation.
