The Budget and Finance Parliament Committees gave a negative opinion on the budget execution account of the public television (TVR) for 2014. Stelian Tanase’s situation as the head of TVR is therefore uncertain as the activity report received a negative opinion. If the report is also rejected by the plenary session of Parliament, the management of the public television will be dismissed.
At the end of April, the Opposition was saying that the MPs had asked for an urgent analysis of the 2014 SRTv activity report trying to speed up the process of ousting Stelian Tanase.
The Liberal Ludovic Orban was speaking about Stelian Tanase’s ‘political execution’, according to ‘Revista 22’.
‘PSD wants to politically execute a television head for the simple fact that he dared not be Victor Ponta’s servant. They don’t care about what happens at CNA, about the shame and promiscuity of CNA, the fact that the majority of the CNA members want to replace the head of the institution, Laura Georgescu’, said the liberal.
The PNL MPs left the room where the debates were taking place on Tuesday, accusing a political ‘execution’ the power was preparing for the Chairman and General Manager of SRTv, Stelian Tanase.
After restoring the quorum, the MPs on the merged Budget, Finance and Banks Committees gave a negative opinion on the 2014 budget execution account of the Romanian Television. The vote was 20 in favour and two abstentions.
The opinion will be sent to the joint Committees on Culture and Media where the date of the joint sitting will be established.
The public television 2014 report highlights the severe financial strain of the institution: a total debt of RON 700 M (about 440 M to the state budget), total revenue of RON 544.2 M, total expenditure of RON 625.8 M and a loss of RON 81.5 M.
