The Save Romania Union - Party of Liberty, Unity and Solidarity (USR PLUS) Alliance is urging President Klaus Iohannis not to promulgate a law under which a 46-hectare plot of land at the Romexpo Exhibition Centre switches from government ownership to that of the Romanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for a real estate development."Following today's decision of the Constitutional Court, USR PLUS is urging President Klaus Iohannis not to promulgate the law that allows the free granting of a plot worth hundreds of millions of euros in central Bucharest. The law must be sent back to Parliament for reconsideration and the Romexpo's real estate scam must be stopped," the alliance said in a statement released on Wednesday.
On Wednesday, the Constitutional Court rejected the USR and Hungarian Democratic Union of Romania (UDMR) notification on this law, sources with the court told AGERPRES.
The statement also says that USR PLUS supports development and investment, but not to the detriment of the citizens. "If you want to capitalise on land and develop real estate projects there, a transparent tender procedure must be organised first."
