Parliamentarians and a large share of the public servants left on vacation earlier one day. Senators, deputies, the Bucharest Mayor and the public servants in several institutions were nowhere to be found. The Parliament was completely empty.

All day Thursday, both senators and deputies were missing from their jobs. Still, the administration personnel was there. Event the presidential demand to have the National Integrity Agency voted for had no echoes in the Parliament.

The Senate speaker, Nicolae Vacaroiu, gave up presenting the 2006 balance, after the absent senators proved as early as Tuesday that they feel as if the holidays already begun.
