MEP Macovei: Tariceanu has to go

MEP Monica Macovei says Chairman of the Romanian Senate Calin Popescu-Tariceanu has to resign his chairmanship for repeated violations of the Constitution in the cases of senators Dan Sova and Varujan Vosganian.

‘I would like to mention here the ruling of the Constitutional Court that says clearly Senate Chairman Tariceanu has violated the Constitution. First, in the case of Sova, where the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) asked for Sova being stripped of immunity, but where Tariceanu failed to issue a decision of the Senate to mention the request being denied. In fact, that is what he has done in several cases. In the Vosganian case, he did not issue a decision of the Senate. Why? So as not to be challenged. (…) Then, he issued a decision. The Court ruled the decision unconstitutional. After three violations of the Constitution, Tariceanu has to go. How can someone still trust hums to be the chairman of the Senate?’ Macovei said Sunday in Zalau.

In Sova’s case, Macovei argues that no vote repeat is needed in the Senate, just a notice that he was stripped of immunity.
