The parliamentary majority on February 8 rejected the proposal to consider holding hearings where to question the National Bank governor Sergiu Cioclea and the head of the Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office Viorel Morari. The proposal was submitted by the Liberal-Democratic MPs, who wanted to find out details about the investigation into the banking fraud, IPN reports.
Another proposal on the issue, formulated by the Socialist MPs, wasn’t at least put to the vote. Speaker of Parliament Andrian Candu argued that even if the text is different, this refers to the same issue as the one broached by the Lib-Dems.
The Socialists also proposed inviting the managers of the National Agency for Energy Regulation to Parliament so as to ask them why the gas tariff hasn’t been adjusted for two years and the Moldovans, as a result, paid more than they should have paid in the period. The parliamentary majority rejected this proposal too.
Update: The Socialist and Communist MPs left, in turn, the assembly hall.
The February 8 sitting of Parliament is the first held in 2018.
