Romania: The government is proposing the extension of the state of emergency and new measures

Prime Minister Ludovic Orban announced on Sunday afternoon that the content of the government’s decision to extend the state of emergency for the next 30 days, as well as the relevant measures to be taken, will be ready on Monday or Tuesday.

Asked what would happen if the Social Democratic Party (PSD), which has a majority in parliament, voted against extending the state of emergency, the prime minister said: “This means that in this case there will be no state of emergency. This means that the authorities will be left without the necessary tools to enforce compliance with the rules of protection.

I repeat, the decision to extend the state of emergency is not a political decision, it is a decision based on evaluations, analyses by experts, epidemiologists, who deem it necessary to extend the state of emergency for 30 days, because it provides all the necessary tools for the application of the rules”./ibna
