President Iohannis says will ask Parliament a new consultation that widens the referendum’s span. Consultations also with parliamentary parties on referendum. PSD summons Iohannis to state the question and “stop using the judiciary as an electoral crutch”. Vasilescu on new consultation that President has sent Parliament: We are treating his statement in the context of April 1st Referring to President Klaus Iohannis’s announcement that he will consult Parliament again in order to widen the referendum’s span, PSD Spokeswoman Olguta Vasilescu stated on Monday that Parliament has already done its duty. She asked the Head of State to be clearer and more coherent. “We are treating the President’s statement in the context of April 1st, because President Klaus Iohannis has obtained from the Romanian Parliament the possibility of convening a referendum on the topic of the judiciary, and we cannot see what else should there be in addition to that, since the range was very wide, so he can ask any kind of question on the topic of the judiciary. The only one talking about the judiciary and stirring this topic is President Klaus Iohannis himself. He talked about GEO no.13 too, which dates back to two years ago,” Olguta Vasilescu stated on Monday for RFI. “For the time being, the President must send an address to the Romanian Parliament, so we would see what he wants. But, in our opinion, he already has this prerogative, conferred by the Romanian Parliament, and nobody is stopping him from holding this referendum. Maybe only the absence of a question,” the former Labour Minister added. Vasilescu added that Iohannis must be clearer about what he wants, stating that if the Head of State is bored at the Cotroceni Palace that does not mean we must endlessly discuss certain topics. “In our opinion, Parliament has done its duty toward the President. We expect him to be clearer and more coherent. We understand he is getting bored at Cotroceni, because he does not have much to do when not on holiday, but that does not mean we must endlessly discuss certain topics that suit the President during an elections campaign,” the PSD Spokeswoman concluded.
