Romania: PSD will not be filling a motion of censure

Transitional President of the Social Democratic Party of Romania (PSD), Marcel Ciolacu, in his statements implied that his party would not be filing a motion of censure against Ludovic Orban’s Liberal Government, since no political party wants to back PSD’s initiative.

The Social Democratic Party had announced that by the evening of December 26 it would have filed a motion of censure against the government on the laws on finance, but no proposal was ultimately tabled.

On the subject of a legal dispute over state budget 2020 and social security laws, the Presidents of the Senate and the House of Representatives have convened the Romanian Constitutional Court (CCR). The Constitutional Court of Romania has set a deadline of 10 January 2020 for the transmission of the views of the Government and Parliament on this dispute./ibna
