President Iohannis notifies Constitutional Court about approval of GEO 96/2016

President Klaus Iohannis on Thursday filed a constitutional challenge to the Constitutional Court of Romania (CCR) concerning the Law on the approval of the Government Emergency Ordinance no. 96/2016 on the modification and completion of certain normative acts in the fields of education, research, professional training and healthcare, reasoning that this Law was adopted by Parliament in breach of the Constitution.

He showed that on December 27 2017 the Romanian Parliament submitted the law on the approval of the normative act to him, for promulgation.

“In our opinion, both during the initial debate stage and during the reexamination stage, the Law on the approval of the Government Emergency Ordinance no. 96/2016 on the modification and completion of certain normative acts in the fields of education, research, professional training and healthcare was adopted in breach of the provisions of articles 75 and 77 paragraph (2) of the Constitution. Moreover, through the normative act, the abovementioned law also violates the provisions of article 1 paragraph (5) of the Constitution,” reads the challenge.
