How he wants Martin to put the ball gag in the mouth of the Opposition. Case study: the laws of Justice

the

PSD Deputy Florin Iordache submitted Thursday to the Parliament, together with Tudor Ciuhodaru (PSD) and Marian Cucșa (ALDE), a draft amending Regulation Chamber of Deputies, so that, in plenary, after the exhaustion of time allocated to the debates, the amendments accepted in Committee are subject to vote to the package, and the rejected vote only in certain cases. At first glance, it seems just a matter of legislative technique. But to better understand the initiative of Florin Iordache, to imagine how it would be within the plenary sitting of Wednesday in which the Opposition managed to block, late at night, the final vote for the first of the three laws of Justice.

on Wednesday, to stop the law on status of judges, NLP and USR have very skillfully used the right of the Opposition to ask for debate on each amendment in part. And they were not few: 700. Only that the majority of PSD – ALDE, from the desire to pass as rapidly as the laws of Justice, has allocated only an hour and a quarter for the debate in plenary. After this time has been exhausted, the Opposition has asked that each amendment of the 700 to be voted in part. So it came as a meeting of the plenary to stretch up to 2300 hours. And towards midnight, when I was supposed to vote on the final form of the law, the PSD has never had quorum, for that, meanwhile, some mps have Power had gone home. It was late. So, it was a great victory of the moment and moral of the Opposition.

But the next day, the Florin Iordache has submitted to Parliament the draft that would further diminish the chances – and so tiny – of the Opposition to block a bill. Iordache says so: the amendments admitted in the specialized Commissions of the Parliament may be debated in plenary only in the allotted time of the debate. For example, the law on status of judges have been 300 amendments admitted. How many of these could be debated in an hour and a quarter? Very few. Martin continues: the rest of the remaining nedezbătute vote on the package, without any debate.

“the DICTATORSHIP of the MAJORITY”
What about the amendments rejected a draft law in the Committees of Parliament? Iordache comes with the following proposal, which, at first glance, do not understand anything. “The amendments rejected are subject to vote only in the case in which, by vote, the house rejected amendments accepted by the commission,” reads the text of the proposal. What he wanted to tell the author? The other way around. A specialized board shall adopt an amendment. Then, the plenary Chamber disagrees with him and rejects him. In this case only the amendment is put to the vote separately. The rest of the amendments rejected at the outset in the Commission are rejected at the pack and in the plenary. Stated that amendments rejected in any Committee belong to the most often the Opposition. And the current Regulation of the Chamber of Deputies provides parliamentarians of the Opposition are entitled to more support once in parliament, although the chances to be adopted remain insignificant. Now, if the proposal is initiated by Iordache will be adopted, the elected officials who are not part of the majority coalition will look at how the amendments tabled to them are removed from the package, without even be read in the plenary. Therefore, most of the PSD-ALDE turns the Opposition into a mere spectator.

“This regulator does not do it than to introduce a dictatorship of the majority which means the plenum. The gentlemen Iordache, Ciuhodaru and Cucșa have proposed an amendment to the Regulation of the Chamber of Deputies so that what happened on Wednesday (the blocking of the laws of Justice – n.r.), the use of tools for parliamentary blocking a law to no longer be possible. Basically, it tries to ban the possibility of debating the amendments in the plenary of the Chamber of Deputies,” said the president of USR, Dan Bb.

these People have no respect for democracy! Fist in the mouth it’s all I know.

the LAW, ON the FAST-FORWARD
the Project started by Florin Iordache has already arrived at the Permanent Bureau of the Chamber of Deputies, where he received a registration number and the deadline for amendments until Monday, which means that the PSD wants to adopt him as quickly as possible. Theoretically, next week, the project could pass the Chamber of Deputies, and in two weeks he could be adopted and the Senate. The project submitted by Iordache comes in the context in which the PSD has proposed to adopt the laws of Justice up to Christmas, and the Opposition are trying hard to oppose. The only way the Opposition is to attack to the Constitutional Court the amendments of the regulation proposed by Florin Iordache.
