The leaders of PNL, USR PLUS and UDMR - Ludovic Orban, Dan Barna, Dacian Ciolos and Kelemen Hunor - signed, on Monday evening, the governing agreement 2020 - 2024. The document stipulates that the coalition's proposal for the position of prime minister is Florin Citu.

This is the second round of consultations of the head of state with the representatives of the parties that entered Parliament after the December 6 elections.

On December 14, President Iohannis said after talks with political parties that "this first round of consultations led to a good exchange of views," but that "the conditions for nominating a candidate to form a new government" had not yet been met.
