Although Parliament officially entered recess on Wednesday, June 29, very few lawmakers have been seen at work since the summer started. Thus, many lawmakers preferred to ignore their working schedules within the commissions and left on holiday earlier. The recess will last at least 2 months, until September 1. According to Digi24, four commissions were listed as being “in session” on the Lower Chamber’s website on Wednesday, however the doors of the Commission for Industry, Statute Commission and Human Rights Commission remained closed since no members showed up for work. The excuse invoked was that they were “engaged in individual study.”
According to the aforementioned source, Clement Negrut, non-affiliated Lower Chamber MP, stated that “this is what the Standing Bureau decided.”
“I too was surprised by the Standing Bureau’s decision to end the parliamentary sitting one day earlier. As you can see, it has been implemented, the parliament is in recess starting today,” he said.
The parliamentary elections campaign will start after two months of recess.
