Government project: Royal House gets juridical personality and administrative service financed by state budget

The Royal House of Romania may have juridical personality and could benefit from an administrative service to fulfil its public attributions, financed by the state budget.

The Royal House may also receive Elisabeta Palace as headquarters for free use, the public property of the state being maintained.

All these provisions are included in a draft law initiated by the General Secretariat of the Government and published on its website.

According to the bill, the position of Head of the Royal House of Romania will become public office with attributions including the adoption of the Statute of the Royal House of Romania.

The measures adopted are considered “necessary to continue the activity of a symbol institution whose leader has been head of state for 81 years in the constitutional history of Romania and since 1947 to the present day has represented a landmark of morality, continuity and has represented the nation and its values.”

The government considers that the social impact of promoting such a bill will be a positive one, because when benefiting from juridical personality and closer collaboration with the state, the Royal House could continue to extend public activities to the benefit of Romania.

The exposition of reasons shows that the law is according to Romania’s Constitution “because there are no privileges that do not tend to review the Constitution concerning the form of government.”

Premier Dacian Ciolos announced a week ago that the government was working to set up a juridical frame on the role and attributions of the Royal House in Romanian society.
