PNL to submit censure motion by end of parliamentary session should gov't not resign

The Liberals (PNL - opposition)will submit a censure motion in this parliamentary session should the Dancila Government not resign, on Tuesday said this party's leader Ludovic Orban. 

"The Romanians, with a resounding majority no longer want the PSD [the Social Democratic Party, major at rule, ed. n.] in power. (...) Because of this, the PNL [the National Liberal Party] will take all possible constitutional, legal steps to put an end to this government. We repeat our request to the gov't: Step down! (...) The Romanians no longer want you at Romania's helm! Should the gov't not resign, the PNL will submit a censure motion against this government by end of this parliamentary session," Orban asserted at the end of the PNL National Executive Bureau's meeting.

Kelemen Hunor: We expect a no confidence motion

UDMR (Hungarian Democratic Union of Romania) president Kelemen Hunor, declared on Tuesday that he expected a no confidence motion against the government and added his party had suggestions to be introduced in the text of the motion.

“Yes, we expect such a motion. If they ask us, we also have suggestions for the text of the motion. Otherwise it is not use talking about support if we have no contribution. USR announced they did not want to join the government. To take over the government you need to come with concrete matters, the majority and a coalition accord are essential. I agree, we have  no problem, but we must see such a suggestion, who the premier is, as the government has to be lead by someone,” Kelemen Hunor said, after the UDMR meeting.

Referring to Ludovic Orban's statements, who said that as party president he was entitled to become premier, the UDMR president said he wanted to see the signatures of Dacian Ciolos and Dan Barna, the leaders of USR and Plus on “the coalition paper”.

“Very well, let's see Ciolos' and Barna's signatures on this coalition paper and then we step in if we are invited too, because they said they did not need us. But let's disregard campaign statements and expect for the first time major forces in Parliament establish a common path. We have no problem to remain in opposition, we know what we have to do, I don't want to interfere in their business,” Kelemen Hunor said.
