Prime Minister Ion Chicu said the amendments to the budget for which the Government assumed responsibility includes 175 million lei for covering personnel costs in education. “If, because of you, dear MPs, the teachers will not get salaries in August or September, you should assume the consequences. If such a situation is reached, I promise you that you will also remain without financing so that “you are near the people”, stated the official, being quoted by IPN.
“The peak of ridicule and irresponsibility is witnessed in Moldova’s Parliament. Three sittings in a row have been boycotted by MPs who were elected to Parliament by people to work, not to run away from the Premier,” Ion Chicu wrote on Facebook.
“As I promote bills that are needed by the people, I will go to Parliament this Thursday and Friday too and how many times it is necessary. I will see how long they will run away... I expect you to come to work on Thursday, dear MPs.”
The last sitting of Parliament set for July 6 could not take place as the quorum was not present. There were 50 MPs of the 101 in the hall. As at the previous two sittings, MPs Ilan Șor and Ștefan Gațcan and those of the PPPDA, PAS, Pro Moldova and the Shor Party were absent. It was the Premier’s third attempt to present the bills for which the Government assumed responsibility before the legislative body.
