The European Parliament will debate in its next session the situation in Romania and may adopt a resolution on this topic in the second plenary session in October, MEP Siegfried Muresan announced on Thursday, September 13.
He said prime minister Viorica Dancila will be invited to the debate, which will take place at the beginning of October (1-4). The resolution will be adopted in the second session (October 22-25), Muresan added, according to local News.ro.
The European Parliament voted on Wednesday the start of the procedure to sanction Hungary for breaking democracy rules, based on Article 7 in the EU Treaty. In Romania’s case, the debate in the European Parliament will focus on the situation of justice and the August 10 protest, which ended with violent incidents after the riot police’s brutal intervention.
PM Viorica Dancila said recently that she was open to go to any debate in the European Parliament. She instructed the ministers in her cabinet to explain that Romania hasn’t made any steps to endanger rule of law, according to political sources quoted by Mediafax.
