President Iohannis: I will wait for formal consultations after discussions in the parties lead to a majority

President Klaus Iohannis announced on Thursday that he will call the parties to consultations when a parliamentary majority crystallises.

“I will wait for formal consultations after discussions in the parties lead to a majority owned by the parties that will want to propose a government crystallises. Only when that majority is owned will I call consultations for the formation of the new government,” Iohannis told a news conference at the Cotroceni Presidential Palace.

He said he did not accept minority governments.

“Unfortunately, the last proposal did not meet a number of possible votes in Parliament and, thus, the Ciuca government did not show up in the Romanian Parliament. In the meantime, parties resumed their talks, and that is excellent. It is very clear that attempts to form minority governments have not yielded results and, so, I cannot continue to accept such approaches,” Iohannis said.

Prime Minister-designate Nicolae resigned on Tuesday. The National Liberal Party (PNL) leadership later decided to make the negotiating mandate more flexible. The Liberals had talks with the Save Romania Union (USR) and the Social Democratic Party (PSD) on Wednesday and Thursday, Agerpres informs.
