Lower Chamber Speaker Liviu Dragnea stated on Thursday, in Parliament, that the setting up of the commission of inquiry into the presidential elections of 2009 will be put up for vote next week, the members of the commissions having plenty of elements to verify, considering that the Prosecutor General’s Office cannot cover all aspects.
“I believe next week we’ll have all conditions to adopt what had to be adopted and the modification of the Regulations, and the commission itself will start working. There will be something left to verify for the commission of inquiry too, I don’t believe it (the Prosecutor General’s Office – editor’s note) can cover everything,” Liviu Dragnea said when asked about the commission of inquiry into the 2009 presidential elections.
PSD’s Eugen Nicolicea, Chairman of the Lower Chamber’s Judiciary Committee, stated on Wednesday, at Parliament, that the Lower Chamber’s Regulations have been modified so that persons who are invited to hearings before commissions of inquiry would be forced to answer the invitations or risk being accused of hiding information that is needed to ascertain the truth.
The draft decision on the setting up of the commission of inquiry into the presidential elections of 2009 was sent back to the Judiciary Committees last week, in order for them to clarify its objectives, against the backdrop in which the Prosecutor’s Office opened a probe. The request to do so, filed by Marcel Ciolacu, leader of the PSD group, was adopted with 278 votes in favour and 17 against.
