PSD’s Ciolacu: We will have a talk about basic food items’ prices in coalition meeting

The chairman of PSD (co-ruling Social Democratic Party) declared on Tuesday, in Parliament, that during Tuesday’s Governing coalition meeting there will be a discussion about the possibility of capping basic food items’ prices, but also about the cumulation of pension with salary in state institutions.

Ciolacu added that in Romania food items already have “a consistent VAT deduction”.

The PSD chairman also said that during the coalition’s meeting on Tuesday there will be talks about banning the cumulation of pension with salary, but only after they will see what the impact of such a decision will be.

“Let us see the impact, not to give out laws and make decisions without knowing the full context,” Ciolacu said, according to Agerpres.

 

SocDem leader argues that Dr. Streinu-Cercel doesn’t deem 3-dose COVID certificate necessary in Romania

 

The leader of the Social Democrats, Marcel Ciolacu, stated on Tuesday that the chairman of the Senate Health Committee, Adrian Streinu Cercel, told him that the EU Digital Covid Certificate doesn’t need to be implemented in Romania in the case of three mandatory vaccine doses.

Asked at the Palace of the Parliament if the three-dose Covid certificate should be implemented in Romania as well, internally, the PSD leader replied: “I am not a specialist, but I took the liberty of asking Mr. Streinu Cercel and he said he does not think such a measure is necessary.”

On Monday, the head of the Emergency Situations Department, Raed Arafat, said that Romania must adapt to the rules of the European Union regarding the EU Digital Covid Certificate, and the people who received the second dose of vaccine more than 9 months ago should get the booster jab.
