Crin Antonescu, PNL President and Chairman of the Parliamentary Commission on Amending the Constitution, stated yesterday during a debate organized by the "Dimitrie Cantemir" Christian University that although not all articles of the Constitution will be amended there is complete openness towards any proposals concerning any article.
pointed out that the goal is to avoid falling in the trap of limiting the process to issues that stir passions from a media point of view, such as the President's prerogatives.
"The Constitution is not made in order to clarify the relations between the two officials, President - Premier, it's not being made for the future President, for the current or future Premier, it's not being made just for politicians and the political life.
The Constitution is being made for the Romanian citizen," Antonescu
said, according to Mediafax.
added that the risk of speeding-up and forcing through the process, given the fact that USL
has a two-thirds Parliamentary majority, "is conspicuous," pointing out that this should be avoided.
added that the parties that today make up this "huge majority" understand that amending the Constitution cannot be made "only by us, as we want, for us.
"The Constitution is being done not for an electoral cycle, not only for those in the majority, but with the hope that it garners the consensus of most of the society," Antonescu added.
It's not a Constitution made as Traian Basescu wants, it won't be a Constitution amended against Traian Basescu," Antonescu
