Romania's leftists unveil blueprint to double state pensions


BUCHAREST (Reuters) - Romania's Labour Ministry has drafted a plan to more than double state pensions over the next four years for the country's 5.2 million retirees, Minister Olguta Vasilescu said on Friday, a proposal critics deemed unrealistic.

Vasilescu's draft showed pension-related spending in the social security budget would rise to 140 billion lei (£26.9 billion) over four years, from 61 billion lei.
