CCR postpones ruling on magistracy body membership

The Constitutional Court of Romania (CCR) on Wednesday postponed to January 25 the debate on the objections filed by the Liberal Democratic Party (PDL) to the Senate’s decisions that validate the list of magistrates elected in the Superior Council of Magistrates (CSM) and the election of the representatives of the civil society, HotNews reports.

The Senate validated the newly elected members of CSM on December 22, 2010 with 64 votes to 60, and the decision was published by the Official Gazette on December 23, 2010. Power and opposition parties clashed over putting on vote the complete list of magistrates elected in the CSM, or just a “short list,” as proposed by PDL. The leader of the PDL group in Parliament, Cristian Radulescu said the list cannot voted in block, because it includes three magistrates – Dan Lupascu, Lidia Barbulescu and Dan Chiujdea – who already served one term with the CSM and are running now for a second term.
