Mandatory private pensions are still in focus in Romania after the Government thought about suspending contributions to them:
The Government may suspend the contributions to mandatory private pension funds (Pillar II) from July 1 until December 31, according to a draft law that is part of the Government’s legislative project for this year.
Some journalists and analysts argued that this decision might interfere with right to private property. This was also an argument used in Poland:
The Polish pension funds’ organisation said the changes may be unconstitutional because the government is taking private assets away from them without offering any compensation.
Also, Hungary managed to nationalize the private pensions.
Question: How did Poland and Hungary governments manage to take over (nationalize) mandatory private pensions without breaking private property right?
