Romania pays the highest salaries in the world for handball.”

The discussion about the handball team’s salary with public money should be placed in the context in which Mayor Nikkor Dan is asking for sacrifices from residents: to accept the lack of heat because there is no money to replace pipes, to withstand traffic and pollution due to a lack of investment money.

“In 2022, they will be half the real revenue of Bucharest City Hall for 2021, which will make it impossible for Bucharest City Council to provide public services within its powers. No institution can operate with half a budget…. One solution is for the state to help Bucharest and all other regions that have Central heating systems, so that the state can bear part of this amount,” said Nikkor Dan.
