Parliamentary political parties invited on Monday for consultations with President Iohannis

October 24, 2021

President Klaus Iohannis invited to the Cotroceni Palace on Monday the chairs of the political parties and formations represented in the Parliament for consultations in order to nominate the candidate for the position of prime minister, the Presidential Administration announced.The consultations will take place on Monday, according to the following schedule:Earlier, President Iohannis had announced that he would convene parliamentary parties and formations for a first round of talks on resolving the government crisis."The constitutional steps are well known. I will invite parliamentary parties to consultations. And I will try, together with the most mature, most responsible, to find a way out of this crisis. I have decided to hold a round of consultations on Monday. On Monday, starting with at 12.00, I will have consultations with the parliamentary parties", the head of state said on Thursday in Cernavoda.Iohannis was again skeptical that a solution would be found in this first round of consultations.   According to him,  in reality it is almost impossible to trigger early elections.In his opinion, the fact that "a party is still parading" with that type of election seems to him "a form of avoidance rather than something else.""Triggering early elections is an issue that has been discussed theoretically in Romania for a long time, but our Constitution is built to guarantee parliamentary stability. It is, in reality, almost impossible to trigger early elections, not to mention the fact that it is probably not even desirable as we are less than one year away from the general election. What would it bring? The same partiess probably with the same percentages, maybe a little changed, which would bring us back precisely to where we are today. In theory, such elections are provided for in the Constitution, but they are not constitutionally well defined and have never taken place for such reasons. The fact that a party is parading with early elections seems to me to be a form of avoidance on the part of that party rather than anything else," said Iohannis. The Citu Government was dismissed on Tuesday after the censure motion initiated by PSD was voted by the Parliament.
