The central public administration reform and the electoral system reform were discussed by the Speaker of Parliament and the Prime Minister with ambassadors of the European Union member states, the OSCE, the Council of Europe and the U.S. ambassador, IPN reports.
Speaker Andrian Candu informed the diplomats about the electoral system reform and the actions taken so far to examine the bills that refer to the method of choosing MPs. In particular, the Speaker reminded about the five public debates held on the issue, three of which in Parliament with the participation of all the parliamentary parties, civil society and electoral experts. The debates, organized with the participation of international partners, also involved representatives of extraparliamentary parties.
Andrian Candu spoke about the broad consensus reached on the bill to introduce the mixed-member voting system, which was passed by the votes of 74 MPs of 101 in the first reading. The legislature will adopt the bill in the final reading only after examining the recommendations of the Venice Commission.
Pavel Filip presented the new draft law on the Government, saying its adoption is a first step towards creating the legal context needed to do the structural reform of the central public administration. “It will be thus possible to optimize the institutional structure, to improve the public position and to increase the financial motivation of employees of the state administration,” stated the Premier.
The bill will be shortly submitted for official appraisal and public consultation and then to the Government and Parliament for adoption.
