PNL heralds new censure motion
Chairman of the National Liberal Party (PNL), Ludovic Orban, has announced on Tuesday that his party will file another censure motion during the parliamentary session that will start in February.
“We’ll continue our activity to convince the ruling power MPs, PSD, ALDE and UDMR lawmakers that they are doing Romania a tremendous harm if they keep this Government alive, which is completely unable to do any good to Romania,” said Orban.
The last censure motion filed by the Opposition against Dancila Government entitled “It’s enough! Dragnea-Dancila Government, Romania’s shame!” failed in Parliament at the end of 2018, getting even less votes than the number of signatories. Previously, PM Dancila said she is not nervous at all about the motion, as the ruling coalition has a majority in Parliament.
There were 161 votes to three, while PSD-ALDE and UDMR lawmakers have abstained from voting. 233 votes were needed for the motion to pass.
