PNL is to read the text of the censure motion titled ‘Dismissal of Dragnea-Dancila Government – national emergency’ on Monday, in Parliament. The opposition is looking for allies in order to topple the PSD-ALDE Government, stiri.tvr.ro informs.

PNL, URS and PMP have announced they will vote in favour of the motion, but they still need some 80 votes to succeed. Some of the votes could be achieved with the support of former PM Victor Ponta, whose group might join the opposition’s camp in this case, but has several conditions, of which that PNL leader Ludovic Orban drops the claim to be prime minister in an alleged next cabinet and that a new Government should include representatives from more parties.

The vote on the censure motion is to be cast on Wednesday. So far, PNL, USR and PMP have 154 votes on their side, and need, as said, 80 more to topple the Government.

UDMR representatives say they haven’t made up their mind.

The ruling coalition representatives claim there is no anxiety in regard to the censure motion and that they are focusing on the amendments to the Criminal Code.

The opposition believes the ruling coalition’s haste to amend the Criminal Code is to favour PSD leader Liviu Dragnea, who was sentenced last week by the High Court to 3 years and 6 months in jail for abuse of office in the file of fictitious employments. The ruling is not final.
