President Klaus Iohannis has convened the parliamentary parties and formations on Wednesday for consultations after accepting the resignation of Ludovic Orban from Prime Minister-designate office.
“I will convene consultations with the parliamentary parties, which are to begin tomorrow at 16:00hrs and conclude at 20:00hrs,” the head of state announced on Tuesday evening at the Cotroceni Presidential Palace.
He showed that Ludovic Orban remains his first option as Prime Minister.
Ludovic Orban resigned his position as PM designate on Tuesday evening, as the deadline by which Parliament should have endorsed or not his new Vabinet was exceeded. The announcement was made by President Klaus Iohannis, who blamed the Social Democrats for this situation. The head of state also said he accepted Orban’s resignation to avoid an institutional blockage.
