Eight bills that were sent back by President Igor Dodon to Parliament for reexamination were adopted again in the same form by the MPs. The members of three parliamentary groups were absent from the sitting. A day before, the Communists announced they would not take part in the sitting. The Lib-Dems left the assembly hall at the start of the meeting, while the Socialists left after the first two bills were examined as they ascertained that the President’s position on these wasn’t taken into account, IPN reports.
The parliamentary alliance passed again, by 55 votes, the following draft laws: the bill on energy that offers financial independence to the National Agency for Energy Regulation; the bill to modify the role and status of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova and to transfer the research and innovation areas under components of the executive power; the bill to amend and supplement Labor Code articles that regulate labor relations; the bills on meal vouchers, state awards and terrorism fighting, and the bills to amend the law on the Government, the law on territorial-administrative organization, the roads law and the Tax Code.
The President of the Republic of Moldova is now obliged to promulgate the laws that were adopted again by Parliament.
