Corlatean designated by Standing Bureau to fill in Senate President position after Melescanu’s resignation

Vice President of the Senate Titus Corlatean has stated on Tuesday that he was designated by the Senate’s Standing Bureau, following Teodor Melescanu’s resignation, to exercise the prerogatives of the President of the Upper House until a new President is elected.

He explained that, after the reasoning of the CCR decision regarding the unconstitutionality of the election of Teodor Melescanu in this office is published, the procedure for the election of the Senate President will be initiated.

“One of the four vice presidents has been mandated by the newly established Standing Bureau (BP), through vote, to exercise prerogatives of the President of the Senate until the election of a new President,” Corlatean said on Tuesday, according to Agerpres.

He said that, legitimately, the Senate President office would have to belong to the Social Democratic Party (PSD), taking into account the political configuration resulted from the elections and the majority held.
