Parliament’s joint Judiciary Committees decide to set up commission of inquiry into 2009 elections

Parliament’s joint Judiciary Committees adopted on Wednesday a report on the setting up of the commission of inquiry into the 2009 elections, the National Liberal Party (PNL) announcing that it will analyse the possibility of requesting a constitutional review.

Sixteen MPs voted in favour of the report, nine voted against and one abstained.

PNL announced it will analyse the possibility of requesting a constitutional review once the Parliament’s joint plenum votes on the report.

PSD President Liviu Dragnea stated last Thursday that the setting up of the commission of inquiry could be decided this week, adding that the Prosecutor’s Office’s probe will not be able “to cover everything.”

On 26 April, the joint plenum of the Senate and the Lower Chamber decided to send back to the Judiciary Committees the report on the setting up of the commission of inquiry into the 2009 elections, for a period of one week, for the Committees to clarify the commission’s objectives.

The proposal to do so came from Marcel Ciolacu, leader of PSD’s group within the Lower Chamber, who invoked the fact that the objectives of the commission of inquiry, stipulated in its regulations, must be clarified bearing in mind that the Prosecutor’s Office attached to the High Court of Justice started a probe with a similar objective.
