The assumption of responsibility before Parliament for the seven bills was an absolutely necessary step as an extraordinary situation was created, Prime Minister Iurie Leanca said in the program “Moldova live” on the public TV channel Moldova 1, IPN reports.
The Premier said the seven bills are very important and their adoption cannot be delayed, while the parties of the ruling coalition will enter the election period in several days. “After the elections, things will rerun to normality. The Constitution allows us to assume responsibility for laws in exceptional cases and there is an exceptional situation now. The farmers must receive compensation for the losses sustained as a result of the ban imposed by Russia as quickly as possible. Their losses are estimated at minimum 25%. We must also purchase crude oil for winter and be prepared for any situation,” explained the Premier.
Iurie Leanca also said that before assuming responsibility for the seven bills, he had consultations with the MPs of the ruling parties to secure their support. “We also discussed with the colleagues from the Government. I’m ready to answer personally. I’m ready to take any risk so that things in our country go normally,” he stated.
On September 25, the Premier presented in Parliament the seven bills for which the Government assumed responsibility. If no censure motion is submitted within 72 hours, the bills will be considered adopted without them needing to pass through Parliament.
On July 21, the Government assumed reusability for a package of another 11 bills that the Parliament could not adopt by the end of its spring-summer session.
