The Chamber of Deputies on Wednesday passed with 189 votes to 11 and 86 abstentions the simple motion against Agriculture Minister filed by PSD and ALDE.

The motion entitled “The greatest disaster in the Romanian agriculture during post-communism period” targeted against minister Achim Irimescu was initiated by 84 PSD and ALDE MPs. Despite the fact that the initiators asked for the minister’s resignation, a simple motion doesn’t prompt any quit.

The initiators claim that “while Ponta Gov’t managed to bring the agriculture and the foodstuff industry on top in the Romanian economy in the past years,” the incumbent minister Irimescu has a daily concern “of ruining that performing system.”

PSD and ALDE say that Achim Irimescu must go “in order not to disband the agro-food sector from Romania’s economy” and not to turn Romanians into “Europe’s beggars”, the motion reads.

The initiators argue that serious side slips in agriculture are related to not granting the direct payments, blocking investment projects on irrigations and also to the scarce management of the Agriculture ministry. They claim they only heard of “excuses and motivations for what he cannot do” from the current minister.

“As a matter of fact, besides the hallucinatory episodes on political statements, it can be noticed clearly that he doesn’t know to do anything,” reads the motion.

Even if they abstained from voting, the Liberals warned PM Ciolos to Ok the pay the subsidies to the farmers. “We warn PM Ciolos that if he doesn’t pay the farmers’ subsidies in 10 days we’ll come up with our own motion,” said the leader of PNL deputies, Eugen Nicolaescu.
