PSRM-PAS-PPDA coalition exhibits no interest for development of road infrastructure or for support to socially vulnerable people

In today's session, members of PDM's parliamentary faction requested a hearing of minister of economy and infrastructure, Vadim Brinzan, on the matter of current stage of implementation of governmental program "Good Roads 2", which is stopped presently.  For example, in Ungheni district, even though the constructor was identified through public procurement procedure, the contract was signed and all construction materials were purchased, the work to rehabilitate roads was stopped.  PSRM-ACUM coalition has not supported this proposal.

In today's session, PDM's faction also proposed to hear the minister of internal affairs, Andrei Nastase, on the case of intimidation and aggression against the president of Anenii Noi district, Sergiu Rapacea, threatened by the president of PAS's territorial organization in Anenii Noi, Valentin Vieru, as well as by representatives of some force structures. PSRM-ACUM coalition rejected this proposal as well.

Members of PDM's parliamentary faction also demanded to be informed whether Ministry of Health, Labour and Social Protection envisages developing a social package to support vulnerable groups in relation to the planned increase of tariffs for natural gas and electricity.  PSRM-ACUM coalition did not accept this proposal either.

The request to hear the head of the group of negotiator with IMF on the results of the fourth and the fifth evaluations of the economic program supported by IMF and on the commitments of the Government for having a new financial tranche was rejected as well. 

PSRM-PAS-PPDA coalition also did not accept the proposal to hear the minister of agriculture, regional development and environment, Georgeta Mincu, on the actions taken to support farmers in selling their products.  Parliamentary majority refused to include in the agenda of plenary session the draft law on internal trade, which would have favoured Moldovan products in the shops and stores throughout the country. The draft had to be voted in the second reading.  Our farmers, as well as other local producers, expect the state to help them sell their products in the shops and stores throughout the country, and the buyers expect to have local produce. Unfortunately, governing coalition proved repeatedly that they are more concerned with distribution of functions and spheres of influence than with the people.
