Klaus Iohannis to announce on Thursday the questions for the referendum on justice issues

President Klaus Iohannis will announce on Thursday the questions for the referendum on justice issues, political sources quoted by antena3.ro say.

The head of state needs to sign a decree with the questions to be printed on the voting-paper on May 26.

President Iohannis met on Wednesday the representatives of the Venice Commission, with this topic on the agenda, and has stressed the importance of the citizens’ vote.

Once the decree is published by the Official Gazette, the Government will release a decision to organize the referendum.

The plenary sitting of the Parliament voted last week the report on the letter sent by President Klaus Iohannis on the referendum being held on May 26.

The President had consultation on the referendum with the parliamentary parties on April 11-12.

Early this month, the head of state announced that he has sent the Parliament a letter regarding the two topics to be subject of consultation at the referendum on justice issues announced for May 26.

The first topic is to ban amnesty and pardon for corruption deeds. The second one is to ban the Government from adopting emergency ordinances on criminal offenses, linked to the right of other authorities to notify the Constitutional Court on ordinances.
