The Standing Bureau of the Chamber of Deputies decided that the simple motion against the Minister of the Interior, Lucian Bode, should be debated and voted on next week.
The simple motion against the Minister of Internal Affairs, Lucian Bode, submitted last week by 55 USR and non-affiliated parliamentarians belonging to the Right Force Party, will be debated next Monday at 4:00 p.m. and voted on next Wednesday, the Standing Bureau of the Chamber of Deputies decided on Tuesday.
The Minister of the Interior, Lucian Bode, informed the Standing Bureau of the Chamber of Deputies on Tuesday that he cannot come to the plenary for the debate and vote on the simple motion submitted by the Save Romanian Union (USR) and the Right Force against him and requested its rescheduling.
“I am asking you to reschedule this debate for the week of October 17-21, considering the fact that during October 11 I am engaged in a series of activities with foreign officials, and starting from Wednesday I will be in Belgium, respectively Luxembourg, for activities on the sidelines of the Council of the European Union in the format of Justice and Internal Affairs. I mention the fact that one of the events scheduled for October 11 concerns the signing of the contract for the purchase of multi-role ships by the IGSU,” Bode wrote in the request to address the Permanent Office of the Chamber of Deputies.
The Deputies’ Chamber was scheduled to debate and vote, on Tuesday, the simple motion against Interior Minister Lucian Bode, tabled last week by 55 Save Romania Union (USR) and non-affiliated MPs belonging to the Right Force Party (PFD).
Through the motion called “Safety and trust or disorder and theft? Minister Bode must answer for the disaster that he created,” the signatories demand that he leave the leadership of the Interior Ministry (MAI), because he failed to reform the institution, and the “greatest success” of his mandate is “the rigged tender for the purchase of 600 BMWs.”
The signatories mention that “the greatest success” of Minister Bode is “the rigged tender for the purchase of 600 BMWs from President Klaus Iohannis’ friend.” “The efficiency of Minister Bode was seen when he helped President Iohannis’ friend to sell to the Romanian Police 600 BMWs of only 32,000 euro each, without the VAT. Obviously, through a rigged tender, with a well adjusted tender book, so that the right person can win,” the motion’s initiators argue.
According to the USR and the Right Force Party MPs, Minister Lucian Bode also recorded a failure regarding the implementation of the programme for the protection of domestic violence victims.
The motion’s signatories also argue that Minister Bode classified his doctoral thesis “a day before the deadline announced for the full publication” and that “he would be the father of the corrupt people in the ministry.”
