Premier Viorica Dancila stated on Monday that she does not fear the no-confidence motion prepared by the Opposition because she trusts her party and ruling coalition colleagues, and also because she has fulfilled most of the points from the governance programme.
“I don’t fear a no-confidence motion. I trust all of my colleagues, in the ruling coalition, and I am confident that I’ve implemented most of the things from the governance programme,” Viorica Dancila stated at the end of PSD’s National Political Bureau meeting on Monday.
In his turn, asked whether the no-confidence motion is making him nervous, PSD President Liviu Dragnea said: “I don’t think they have chances,” pointing out that he trusts that PSD MPs will not vote for the motion.
In the upcoming period the PNL wants to table in Parliament a no-confidence motion against the Government.
PNL President Ludovic Orban stated on Saturday, in Iasi, that the Opposition will establish, after December 1st, the date on which they will table the no-confidence motion against the Government, pointing out that the PNL is yet to secure the number of MPs needed to bring down the Dancila Cabinet.
The PNL leader added that he relies on UDMR, PSD and ALDE MPs for the no-confidence motion to pass.
On the other hand, Ludovic Orban was stating on November 19 that PSD-ALDE-UDMR currently hold 62 percent of the seats in Parliament and in the Senate the Social Democrats hold the majority on their own.
Referring to this topic, PMP Senator Traian Basescu stated on Sunday, for RomaniaTV, that a part of the Opposition does not really want a no-confidence motion against the Government, adding sarcastically that maybe the motion will be tabled on New Year’s Eve, on Christmas, or maybe on Easter next year.
