Validation of CSM members, contested at Constitutional Court

The Constitutional Court of Romania (CCR) will debate, on January 19, the contestation filed by the Democrat Liberal Party (PDL) against the Senate’s resolution of December 22, 2010 which validated the list of magistrates elected to the Higher Council of Magistrates (CSM), as well as against the decision to elect Victor Alistar to CSM on behalf of the civil society. The Senate validated with 64 votes “in favour” and 60 “against” the list of magistrates elected to CSM. There was an argument, between the ruling coalition parties and the opposition, on whether they should vote the entire list of magistrates elected to CSM or, as proposed by PDL, a “short list”. The leader of PDL’s parliamentary group, Cristian Radulescu, stated, at the time, that the entire list of magistrates could not be put to vote in the Senate as it included three people – Dan Lupascu, Lidia Barbulescu and Dan Chiujdea -, who, although they had already held a mandate in CSM, were running for a second term.
