Prime Minister Viorica Dancila declared on Thursday that the pension law must be adopted in Parliament by the end of the year, stressing that no pension will decrease.
"As it is [stipulated] in the governing program, the pension law must be adopted by Parliament by the end of this year. Of course it will be launched for public debate, so that everyone who wants to make improvements can do so. What I can tell you now is that we will meet the governing program, no pension will decrease, and if we have equal pay under the Pay Law, we will now have equal pension for equal work, because it is an act of normality," Viorica Dancila told Antena 3 private TV broadcaster.
She mentioned that "the pension point will increase this year to 1,100, the following year, in 2019, to 1,265, and in 2020, it will increase to 1,775."
"So, the Pension Law will surely include what we have provided for in the governing program. We are working on the Pension Law, we have discussed with the [labour] minister, but I cannot talk about a final form as there are several variants. The final form will include everything that will come out from the public debate, and the principles that I have previously announced," added Dancila.
