How much power mayors have after the state of emergency has been instituted.

Before the state of emergency was declared, many mayors had decided, by the local committees for emergency situations, to take various measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus infections. Elena Iacob explained for “Adevarul” what powers and duties the local authorities have once the state of emergency is instituted.

The attorney at law explained that emergency situations are handled by the National System for Management of Emergency Situations, in whose structure there are also the county committee, local committees and the Committee of Bucharest Municipality for Emergency Situations.
