October 5 (WNN) — The Romanian parliament on Tuesday backed a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Florin Situ’s centre-south coalition government.
MPs from the Alliance for the Union of Romanians, Save Romania Union and the Social Democratic Party, known as the PSD, voted 281 in favor of the proposal, higher than the required 231, as reported by Intellinews.
The collapse of the government will allow the CITU cabinet to continue on an interim basis with reduced capacity, which could lead to early elections.
Politico reported that CITU called the parliamentary vote “absurd”.
“Kafka would be proud,” he said.
The no-confidence vote was held after the reformist USR-PLUS pulled out of CITU’s National Liberal Party coalition government last month over issues related to public investment and allegations CITU was attempting to buy support from local governments, which helped the PSD. prompted to file a motion. No faith.
In a statement, the USR-PLUS said that Romanian President Klaus Iohannis will have to choose the next prime minister of the PSD from his or her share.
“Too many months, Romania was a prisoner of the PnL Congress,” it said. “To this day, the choice is simple, a government with USR-PLUS or PSD.”
“Situ has been rejected for all the reforms that have been blocked in recent months, for the failure of the vaccination campaign, for the use of funds and public works to buy votes in the PNL Congress,” it said.
