But this would be the third budget correction for the year, while the legislation on fiscal responsibility only allows two per year - both in the second half of the year.

An exception from the rules is allowed in case of worsening economic indices, but it only covers a correction in the first half of the year.

The reserve fund of the Government would also be used to cover a distraint on air traffic authority Romatsa, which was applied as Romania lost a case against two business people at the International Court of Arbitration, the PM also announced on Friday. He called the issue "very serious".
