Romanian opposition parties prepare new no-confidence motion against Govt.

The opposition parties People’s Movement Party (PMP) and the National Liberal Party (PNL) want to file a new no-confidence motion against the government led by prime minister Viorica Dancila.

PMP president Eugen Tomac announced on Monday, September 3, that his party plans to file a no-confidence motion against the government, the main reasons being the violent incidents at the street protest in Bucharest on August 10 and the spread of the African swine fever.

“These are two strong reasons for preparing this document, which we will send to all opposition MPs, but also to the rest of MPs, asking for the support of all those who believe that we need to be united,” Tomac said, according to local Mediafax.

His announcement came the day after PNL leader Ludovic Orban also announced that they are preparing a no-confidence motion against the Dancila cabinet.

“We will prepare the motion very carefully. In this sense, we decided to form a larger team of negotiations, we decided to intensify dialogue with all the groups, to convince them that Dancila must leave,” Orban said.

However, Calin Popescu-Tariceanu, the president of ALDE, the junior coalition partner of the social Democratic Party (PSD), said he doesn’t believe that this no-confidence motion will pass the Parliament vote, according to Stirileprotv.ro.

The opposition parties previously filed a no-confidence motion against the government in June this year, but the government survived after only 166 MPs voted in favor. The motion needed 233 votes to pass. The result was predictable, however, as the PSD-ALDE ruling coalition’s MPs didn’t took part in the vote and neither did the Hungarian Union’s (UDMR) MPs.
