Stelian Tanase, ad interim chief at TVR, said he sent to the Finance Ministry a project on increasing the TV tax, a proposal he will also present to Romanian prime minister Victor Ponta next week, Mediafax writes.
Tanase was present for a work discussion with the members of Senate’s Culture Committee.
“In a project I advanced to Finance minister, this thing (increasing TV tax – n.r.) is included and I hope next week I could present it to the prime minister also. We have an agreement that, after New Year, we will have a discussion. We have a material, we can discuss on a serious basis. Increasing the tax is the thing we are thinking at. It is a complicated discussion that will take place”, he added
Tanase also mentioned that different regulations keep appearing recently and are “against” the institution he manages. In this sense, he mentioned Constitutional Court’s decision that will probably have as an effect the diminishing by a third of SRTV’s cash in during 2014.
