President Maia Sandu has assured that there will be no situation when citizens will not be able to pay their gas bills.
“There will be no such thing. We said that the state will help. It’s just that this year we have to work more on the bill compensation system. We’re going to make sure that those reimbursements are more strictly divided. Because there are people who have higher incomes and there are citizens with lower incomes.
Last year, about 100 people refused compensation, among them were the president, the prime minister and several deputies. Now we have to recognize that there are people who have money and can pay their gas bills. This year the government has worked more on this system, and only those who really need compensation will receive it,” said Maia Sandu, quoted by unimedia.info.
Earlier, Labor Minister Marcel Spatar said that work was underway on a new mechanism for assistance during the cold season.
