National Liberal Party (PNL) Co-Chairman and Democratic Liberal Party (PDL) leader Vasile Blaga on Friday said that the Liberals will file a censure motion in Parliament even in case they don’t obtain a majority, arguing that it is the Opposition’s duty to sanction Power.
‘We shall file a censure motion, it is the right and duty of the Opposition to sanction Power. We hope that when we file the censure motion we also have a majority in Parliament. (…) If we don’t obtain a majority, there is no crime, but a censure motion against the poor Ponta governance, which you see every day, will surely be filed,’ Blaga said at the Palace of Parliament, after the meeting of the PDL National Steering College convened one day before the National Council of the new PNL expected to shape up the political roadmap of this party until 2017.
He pointed out that he will not postpone the censure motion for the autumn session because the Opposition has the right to one single censure motion. ‘If you are a responsible representative of the Opposition, you must file a censure motion,’ Blaga showed, quoted by Agerpres.
State budget law creates huge discrepancies among counties
Blaga also stated at the end of PDL’s National Steering College meeting, that the state budget law for this year created “huge discrepancies among counties”.
“Mr. Catalin Predoiu has presented the resolution referring to our position regarding the PSD governance and the steps we will take in the following period, and Mr Gheorghe Falca presented the draft resolution through which we show the huge discrepancies created by the state budget law among counties, among local public administrations, because, in accordance with the provisions of the current budget, two counties are clearly favored, not by chance those are the counties of the current Finance Minister and of Mr. Dragnea [e.n. – Olt and Teleorman counties], while the majority are in difficulty, even counties with a far lower economic potential that need larger sums,” said Blaga, at the end of PDL’s National Steering College meeting.
He refused to give out any more information regarding the two resolutions, that will be presented and adopted on Saturday, in the National Liberal Party’s (PNL) National Council meeting.
