Romanian lawmakers appoint two Constitutional Court members

Romania's Parliament chambers have appointed two Constitutional Court members, as the terms of three members of the Court expire this summer. President Klaus Iohannis has to make the third appointment.

Romania's Chamber of Deputies elected current Deputy General Prosecutor Bogdan Licu as a judge at the Constitutional Court.

Licu, proposed by the Social Democratic Party (PSD), has been broadly criticised by the opposition for the PhD that he gave up upon plagiarism allegations as well as for his higher education received from an obscure private university operating under the unregulated market immediately after the fall of the communism.

However, Licu obtained 208 votes, and only 93 deputies voted against his nomination, Bursa.ro reported. The reformist party USR promised to refer the nomination to the Constitutional Court.

On the same day, the Senate elected its member Laura Iuliana Scântei as a judge of the Constitutional Court, News.ro informed. Scântei has been a member of the National Liberal Party since 2016. Since 2008 she has been a public notary in Bucharest, and from 2007 to 2008, she held the position of Secretary of State in the Ministry of Justice.

More recently, she played an active role in promoting the controversial "Romexpo law" that would give for free, if passed, 46 ha of land to the Chamber of Industry and Commerce - an NGO that plans to develop with Iulius Grup a mixed-use real estate project.
