President Klaus Iohannis says that when it comes to the rule of law, it is increasingly difficult to work with the current Parliament and with the current majority.
“Regrettably, I see that with the vote cast today in the Senate, Parliament perseveres in obstructing justice procedures, resorting to procedural ploys. When it comes to the rule of law, it is increasingly difficult to work with the current Parliament and with the current majority,” Iohannis wrote on his Facebook account on Tuesday evening.
The President’s reaction follows the rejection, on the same day, by the Senate plenary, of the request of the Minister of Justice to have Social-Democrat Senator Dan Sova remanded and put under pre-trial arrest, in a vote repeated following a Constitutional Court ruling.
Senator Sova asks his indictment to end political squabbling
Social Democrat Senator Dan Sova said on Tuesday evening, after the Senate plenary’s rejection of the request of the Minister of Justice regarding his remand, that he wanted the case in which he was investigated to be sent to court, to clear his situation once and for all, after the Senate rejected the request of the Minister of Justice to have him taken into custody and put under pre-trial arrest.
“I don’t want to qualify the vote in the Senate. I’ll say just one phrase and I hope you understand me: as I already asked the Supreme Court, I want my case to be referred to court to have things cleared up, and to put an end to all this political squabbling,” Sova said after the 72-to-66 vote of the Senators against his arrest.
