Romania’s Parliament plans to overturn a decision put in place by the government, to combat the spread of COVID-19, by amending an emergency ordinance on November 10th, to re-open food markets.

PSD’s senator Daniel Zamfir, said, “During the alert state, the agri-food markets in closed spaces, fairs, and other markets, will be able to continue their activity while observing the restrictions on social distancing and health protection measures”.

This move comes on the back of food market traders, who have been protesting the government’s decision which was put into affect from November 9th

President Klaus Johannis, stated in a press conference that he defends the government’s original decision to close indoor markets and fairs. However, he avoided to directly answer whether or not he will promulgate the amendment or not.

During the conference, he stated that this was another example of why Romania should hold the general elections, scheduled for December 6th, in order to put an end to situations where Parliament overturns decisions made by the government for managing the pandemic.
