Constitutional Court (CC) decided today the unconstitutionality of the law proposed by Prime-Minister Victor Ponta and assumed by Parliament in November, following referral of Democratic Liberal Party (DLP).
“Unanimously, CC admits the objection of unconstitutionality regarding criticism of unconstitutionality intrinsic and finds that the law establishing measures of decentralization of powers exercised by some ministries and specialized agencies of the central government and the reform measures in public administration as a whole is unconstitutional,” established the court’s decision.
Referral should review December 11, but decided to postpone constitutional judges to discuss it, as in this case received 4,000 pages of documents that have not had time to study up to that point.
Democratic Liberal Party opines that “the project violates Article enshrining the Romanian state unity… the law allows the transfer of property between administrative units without government decision… the law violates the fundamental principles of decentralization and the constitutional principles for the carriers of local autonomy of local councils and mayors’ liability”, and that the procedure is unconstitutional.
The deputy Prime Minister Liviu Dragnea, coordinator of the bill, said that the areas that will decentralized, as skills, tasks and institutions, are health, agriculture , environment, culture, youth and sport, authorization and classification of tourism, clubs and sporting facilities, school camps and fishing related territorial powers.
