NEWS ALERT The abolition of special pensions for parliamentarians has been adopted. UDMR MPs did not vote

“UDMR’s position is firm and consistent – all citizens must receive a pension according to age and contributory age. The principle of contributivity must be basic. Today’s proposal aims to eliminate the special pensions of parliamentarians who have reached the age limit. We are talking about 825 parliamentarians and a budgetary effort of approximately 4.5 million lei. The special pensions of the other 11 socio-professional categories remain in force, which have nothing to do with the principle of contributivity. (…) UDMR has consistently argued that special pensions should be eliminated or taxed at 99% or limited for all categories concerned. (…) Demagoguery and populism at full speed lead to hasty decisions. If you want to eliminate special pensions, not just a small part to gain electoral capital, we invite you to make a serious analysis of the RCC decisions. UDMR MPs will not vote “, was the position of UDMR senator Turos Lorand.

AUR MP George Simion announced that the party’s parliamentarians are voting in favor of the project on the elimination of special pensions for parliamentarians.

“PSD, which invented special pensions, admits that it was crap. Today, Mr Ciolacu, you acknowledge that special pensions are a disgrace. Today we are repairing a little of a huge repair in the field of special pensions. In the coming months and weeks, the coalition will fight to eliminate special pensions. We are washing our cheeks a little more towards this country “, said the leader Dan Barna (USR-PLUS).

In his turn, Ludovic Orban accused PSD – UNPR – ALDE of “voting for special pensions”.

“Today we are at a time when the Parliament has the opportunity to re-enter the service of the Romanian citizen, it has the opportunity to show that whoever shares is not part of it and that the laws must be made for citizens, not for the privileged. (…) Today you have the opportunity to start straightening, gentlemen from PSD. I’m glad you fought for your project to be debated in a beauty contest. Today must be a step. We have to make order in the pension legislation, to do justice for the people “, adds Orban.

Marcel Ciolacu, the PSD leader, says that parliamentarians should not have special allowances.

“I did not understand why you did not do this last year, that you were prime minister, Mr Orban. You had a majority. I do not understand, Mr. Barna, why you have not issued an emergency order so far, to do justice to the end. I think that all the parliamentarians will vote to give up the allowances “, said Marcel Ciolacu.
