Govî€™t to increase pensions as from October 1
Tariceanu added that the pension increase is not a social security measure.
The reference pension point will increase by some 20%, from a current RON 581.3, to RON 697.5. The increase had been initially scheduled for January 1, 2009, but the Government late this August decided to move it backward to November 1.
Given the latest developments, the motion of censure against the government is no longer justified,” PSD national leader Mircea Geoana said on September 16.
