The Government introduced on the Thursday’s meeting agenda an emergency ordinance draft proroguing until August 1 the deadline for the coming into force of the law on doubling the children allowances.
Labour Minister Violeta Alexandru proposed in the Orban Cabinet meeting the introduction on the additional agenda of this emergency ordinance draft.
The announcement to postpone the implementation of the law doubling children’s allowances for the summer, when the first budget adjustment will be operated, was made by Liberal Prime Minister Ludovic Orban. He explained that although the law was ratified by the President, his Cabinet wants to apply it, despite the fact that no funds were made available for this increase, considering the bill was voted after the budget for 2020 was adopted. Ludovic Orban said children’s allowances will be increased with the first budget adjustment depending on the evolution of the economy.
