USR holds public consultation on banning criminally convicted persons from holding public office

The Save Romania Union (USR) is holding on Monday a public consultation titled “No lawbreakers in public office.” USR intends to introduce in the legislation a series of interdictions so that those criminally convicted should no longer be able to be elected or appointed to public office.

The public consultation is scheduled on Monday at 2 p.m., at the Palace of Parliament, and is organised by the USR parliamentary group. The consultation is titled “No lawbreakers in public office.”

“The purpose of this event is to evaluate the juridical options to turn into law the new point 8 of the Timisoara Proclamation, which appeared following the ample street protests against the adoption of the government emergency ordinance (GEO) 13, concerning the banning of criminally convicted persons from holding public office, elected or appointed,” reads an USR press release.

According to party sources, the party’s lawmakers have already prepared the modification of several laws, so that criminally convicted persons should not be able to get elected or appointed to public office. The Statute of Lawmakers, the Criminal Code and the election law for the Lower Chamber and the Senate are among the legislative acts proposed for modification.
