The government has notified the Constitutional Court of Romania (CCR) about a constitutional conflict triggered by the tabling of a motion of censure by the Social Democratic Party (PSD) and asked PSD to schedule the discussion and vote on the motion after the Court has ruled, Ionel Danca, head of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, said Friday.
“I have notified the Constitutional Court of Romania regarding a constitutional conflict caused by the tabling of the motion of censure by PSD. There are several arguments mentioned in this notification, and we are asking PSD to postpone or schedule the discussion and vote on the motion of censure after the court has ruled,” Danca said at CCR.
Prime Minister Ludovic Orban announced on Thursday evening that the government will submit the notification to CCR on Friday.
“Yes, we will file it [the notification]tomorrow. Basically, this notification is in the form of a legal conflict of a constitutional nature between the government and Parliament over motions of censure and the possibility to table such motion when Parliament is in recess,” said Orban, according to Agerpres.
