The government will allocate 148 million Euros to municipalities for ongoing projects and unpaid debts, the local press informs today (Tues).
The funds will be disbursed from the Reserve Fund at the disposal of the prime minister (PM), spokesperson Dan Suciu announced.
Sources close to the cabinet said that the PM Mihai Razvan Ungureanu convinced the ruling coalition to distribute the money only for ongoing European projects and payment of debts, irrespective of the political membership of the mayors.
In the past two weeks, the parties in the coalition led by the Democratic Liberals urged the PM to allot funds to the municipalities held by the ruling parties in view of the local ballot to be held on 10 June.
Last week, following a stormy meeting with the coalition leaders, the PM left the meeting, slamming the door. According to sources at the meeting, Ungureanu told the coalition leaders to stop pressuring him and to find another PM if they wanted money to be thrown out of the window. The episode was denied by the Democratic Liberal Party (PDL) representatives, but sources say that the PM is not well regarded in the coalition any longer.
