PM Mihai Tudose wants to speed up process of transferring Electrocentrale Bucuresti (ELCEN), the largest producer of heat power in Romania, under the Bucharest City Hall’s authority and has asked for an extraordinary session of the Parliament to vote the transfer.
“It’s possible to have an extraordinary session to solve the ELCEN issue. We need a law, an emergency ordinance for that and we don’t have such thing,” the premier argued.
“We asked to solve the heat problem in Bucharest. If we wait until September it might be too late for Bucharesters. The sooner the better,” Tudose added.
The session might take place in August, in two weeks the latest.
The gov’t will issue an emergency ordinance in this regard, which must be adopted in Parliament.
Other major drafts might be also on the agenda, but the ELCEN issue is foreground, as the PM underlined.
Bucharest mayor Gabriela Firea has asked PM Tudose in a meeting this month to endorse the ELCEN take over by the city hall.
