National Liberal Party’s (PNL) House lawmaker Virgil Popescu stated on Tuesday that the Offshore Law cannot be modified through Government Emergency Ordinance (GEO) since it has not been promulgated yet, and asked PSD to stop petty politicking because this is a serious law.
“The members of PSD have once again demonstrated that they do not put the national interest before their own interests and they disregard rational arguments which, had they been included in the law it would have meant cheaper natural gas for the population and extra revenues to the state budget. I want to remind the two gentlemen that a law can be modified only after it is promulgated by the President, and since the law went to promulgation only on Monday, July 16, I do not see how the Government could issue a GEO amending it today, July 17. I am asking the members of PSD to stop petty politicking, at least on serious issues such as the Offshore Law, and to honestly answer the following question: What do you call a law that hasn’t been promulgated but that you want modified via GEO?” PNL’s Virgil Popescu.
The House lawmaker’s reaction comes after Alliance of Liberals and Democrats (ALDE) Vice President Varujan Vosganian expressed on Monday his dissatisfaction with the adoption of the Offshore Law, stating that there was no dialogue between the members of the ruling coalition, the party’s parliamentarians being put “in a delicate situation,” and asking the Government to urgently modify the legislative act.
