The interim chair of the Social Democratic Party (PSD), Marcel Ciolacu, stated on Tuesday that the MPs of the party he runs will submit two simple motions, one in the Senate, one in the Chamber of Deputies, against the Finance and the Agriculture ministers.

PSD’s Ciolacu: Starting June 1, county councils, large cities mayoralties will enter financial collapse

 

The interim chair of the Social Democratic Party (PSD), Marcel Ciolacu, claims that starting with June 1, the county councils and the mayoralties of large cities will enter financial collapse, because the Government has not allotted the money necessary for the functioning of hospitals in the period of the coronavirus epidemic.

“The biggest problem uncovered by my colleagues relates to the local authorities, both county councils, as well as mayors of county seats, but also the mayors that have in subordination local hospitals. I can tell you that at this moment, by our centralization, the costs supported by all the local authorities in the country, regardless of political colour, range to 500 million. The money received from the Government of Romania for county hospitals, for their functioning and for the doctors’ fight against the virus was 17 million lei. (…) Starting with June 1, July 1 at the latest, the county councils and the large city mayoralties will enter financial collapse. There will be no more money neither for hospitals nor for child protection,” said Ciolacu in a press conference, at the end of the PSD’s National Permanent Bureau meeting.

He added that “a wide array of attributions were imposed by military ordinance” on local administrations, but were not supported financially by the Government.

“That is why, together with the Parliamentary groups we will come only on this chapter, healthcare and child protection expenses, with an amendment to the budget revision we introduced in Parliament,” he said.
