Economy Minister Fifor: Gov’t will not reconsider Ordinance for Tax Code’s amendment, completion

The Government will not reconsider the Ordinance 4/2017 for the amendment and completion of Law No. 227/2015 on the Tax Code, for which the National Liberal Party (PNL) has demanded the notification of the Constitutional Court of Romania (CCR), on Sunday said the Economy Minister, Mihai Fifor, in western Abrud.

Quizzed in a news conference how he comments the PNL stance toward “the taxation of the part-time labour contracts”, Fifor denied an answer, saying that he is not that interested in the doings of the opposition’s leaders, of whom he added that “they are very much bored during holiday.”

Fifor stressed that the Social Democratic Party (PSD, main at rule) has a governing programme that it is enforced “by the letter”, which he sustains “could be seen in the Romanians’ pocket.”

At journalists’ persistency, who have readdressed the question, Mihai Fifor replied: “The answer is no.”

PNL has submitted a notification to the Ombudsman to challenge at the CCR the Ordinance 4/2017 regarding the over-taxation of the part-time labour contracts, the Liberals’ president, Ludovic Orban announced, adding that the piece of legislation violates five articles of the Constitution. Among others, the Liberals say that through this Ordinance, the right to work is hampered, because a discrimination among the employees and also between the employees and employers, is created.
