Senate to debate social security contribution cut on August 25

The Senate’s Standing Bureau has decided to postpone the extraordinary plenary sitting to debate a bill aimed to cut the social security contribution by 5 percent on August 25.

In another development, the request of the parliamentary groups of the National Liberal Party (PNL) and the Democratic Liberal Party (PDL) regarding the organization of an extraordinary session of Parliament on August 19 on the topic of the social security contributions (CAS) reduction is legally unfounded, a release of the Chamber of Deputies signed by chairman Valeriu Zgonea shows.

‘Given that at this time the agenda of the Chamber of Deputies does not contain the President of Romania’s request for reexamination of Law 571/2003 regarding the Fiscal Code, which was sent to the Senate of Romania as first chamber notified regarding the law, and given the conditions imposed by the Constitution of Romania and the Regulations of the Chamber of Deputies regarding the initiation of procedures regarding the calling of an extraordinary session, the request formulated by the leaders of the PNL and PDL groups is legally unfounded’, according to the release remitted on Monday to Agerpres.

The MPs of the Christian Liberal Alliance (formed by PNL and PDL), together with several others from different political formations or unaffiliated, have submitted on Wednesday the necessary signatures to call for an extraordinary session of the Senate and an extraordinary session of the Chamber of Deputies on the topic of the law regarding the cut of the social security contributions (CAS) by 5 percent, said deputy Ludovic Orban, vice chairman of the PNL.
