Marcel Ciolacu announced on Tuesday that public services, churches and Metrorex must benefit from the capping and compensation of energy prices, for which he will propose, in the Parliament, the amendment of the ordinance approved by the Government, according to Agerpres.
„I am firmly convinced that we will make amendments and discussions in the coalition. The religious institutions, the churches were not caught, which is an error. I am firmly convinced that both my colleagues and colleagues from the coalition will complete the ordinance. Public services – again it was a major leak. It would lead to a progressive price increase in the price of water because most of the water comes through pumping. We have to see the impact at the Ministry of Finance. No matter how much the budget should bear, we cannot let it escalate of the prices for public services. It is also Metrorex that receives a subsidy from the Romanian state, through the Ministry of Transport, that is, we steal our own hat. The subsidy increases, it’s better for the state to intervene and see what it’s to be done with the price of energy,” said Marcel Ciolacu.
The Social Democratic Party (PSD) leader also gave the example of public transport services with trolleybuses and trams that must benefit from the provisions of the ordinance and emphasized that its amendment is a priority of the current parliamentary session.
