(Xinhua/NAN) Romanian President Klaus Iohannis announced on Thursday that he would hold consultations with political parties and parliamentary groups on the topic of the new government on Friday after the collapse of Social Democrat cabinet.
“I will listen to the options of the parties and I will propose a very clear solution for a government to provide responsible and effective governance until the next parliamentary election, regardless of when it will take place,’’ he said.
According to him, an early election is the best solution, but it can only be done if there is a consensus of the parliamentary parties.
Under the constitution, the president shall designate a candidate to the office of prime minister, as a result of his consultation with the parties represented in the parliament.
Within 10 days, the nominee will seek the approval of the parliament on the programme and the complete list of the government.
Romania’s Social Democratic government collapsed on Thursday, losing a no-confidence vote initiated by the main opposition National Liberal Party and supported by almost all the other parties in parliament. (Xinhua/NAN)
