Parliament appoints Gabriel Vlase to head election code committee

Parliament on Tuesday appointed Gabriel Vlase to take over the leadership of the Election Code Committee, under a draft decision at a plenary session of the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate, 312 to 3 abstentions.
Leader of the Social Democrat Party (PSD) MP group in the Chamber of Deputies Marian Neacsu pledged to come up with a feasible project that will solve the issue of Romanian nationals voting from abroad.
“I am strengthening the commitment I made here and on behalf of the board chairman, together with the Permanent Electrical Authority (AEP), with colleagues from all the other MP groups, that the board will submit to the plenary session a feasible project to solve the issue of Romanian nationals voting from abroad,” Neacsu told Parliament’s plenary session.
After a break for consultations, the floor leaders decided to take note of the PSD leader Neacsu’s commitment to work out a bill from the committee by mid next week that will be submitted to Parliament for debates.
National Liberal Party (PNL) floor leader Eugen Nicolaescu told the plenary session that no deadline was meant to be written down in the draft decision.
“The floor leaders have reached the following public communication version: we are taking note of the PSD leader’s commitment for a bill to exist from the committee by mid next week that will be submitted to Parliament for debates. No deadline was meant to be included in the draft decision, and consequently, we will see whether or not this deadline will be met. But the PNL MP groups will be voting against the decision the parliamentary majority passes today,” said Nicolaescu.
PNL MP Mihai Voicu resigned the leadership of the election committee as protest at what he called the PSD tergiversating the passage of a law for postal voting, PNL co-chair Alina Gorghiu said on September 22.
