President Iohannis to call parliamentary parties for consultations next week

October 24, 2021

President Klaus Iohannis announced on Tuesday that he will call parliamentary parties and formations for consultations next week, after a motion of censure initiated by the Social Democratic Party (PSD) against the Citu government cleared Parliament the same day."The current situation requires a solution. We have to find a solution, Romania has to be governed. The pandemic, the electricity price crisis, winter is coming, all this must be solved by someone. That someone is the Romanian government. So there is a need for solutions and it is time for mature decisions; there is a need for mature decisions from politicians, from political parties In order to give political parties time to meet in their internal forums, to find mature approaches and to come up with them at consultations, I will call the political parties for consultations only next week. Now maturity and responsibility are required," Iohannis said at the Cotroceni Presidential Palace.   He added that the political situation in Romania is complicated and was generated by the motion of censure, which he says was passed through Parliament by "cynical politicians.""A lot of things have been said in politics in recent months, most of them ugly. Politicians have become accustomed to pointing fingers at each other, accusing each other of things, including within parties. People don't know what to do. It's a complicated situation, a situation that was generated by this motion and its passing through Parliament by cynical politicians, some wearing the mask of reformism, others claiming concern for Romanians and so on. USR was part of the ruling coalition, USR (Save Romania Union) left the Government and voted, together with PSD (Social Democratic Party) and AUR (Alliance for the Union of Romanians), today's motion of censure," the head of state said in a statement at the Cotroceni Palace.He said some politicians were thinking of "adding another crisis" to the existing ones."Sad, but true. The word that best characterizes today's Romania is the word crisis. We are in a crisis of the public health system, we are in full pandemic. The fourth wave has hit us and hit us badly. We are in a crisis of energy prices, a crisis that is both European and global. Working would be enough for politicians to solve the problem of the pandemic, to solve the problem of the price of electricity, but instead, some of our politicians have added one more criu crisis, a crisis of government. That's how, today, in the Romanian Parliament, a motion of censure has been voted against the Government, which was successful. And the Government fell," said Iohannis. He also announced that he would convene political parties for consultations next week.The motion of censure initiated by PSD against the Citu Government has been adopted, on Tuesday, by the Parliament.
