President Klaus Iohannis on Wednesday stated that the Law on doubling the child allowances “probably cannot be applied immediately,” but the Government will find the resources in a couple of months.
“It probably cannot be applied immediately, but in a couple of months the Government will find the resources,” said Iohannis at the Cotroceni Palace.
The head of state added that he and the Government want the increase in the child allowances, but “the problem is related to the national budget.”
Government to shortly promote legislation for two-round mayoral elections
President Klaus Iohannis said on Wednesday that the government will promote, “in a very short time,” legislation for two-round mayoral elections.
“I can tell you that, in a very short time, the government will promote legislation for two-round mayoral elections,” Iohannis told a news conference at the Cotroceni Presidential Palace.
However, he did not provide details on how the legislation will be promoted, adding that it will be up to the government to act.
“The two-round mayoral elections will be promoted by the government in a very short time. I have said this: the two-round elections are the best solution. Obviously that is a matter that will then have to enter the legislative circuit and we will see how things turn out. (…) You will receive from the government the versions that they will promote. I do not think it is my part to tell you what the government will do,” said Iohannis, according to Agerpres.
