Weekly Policy and Political Report November 13 – 20, 2017
The no-confidence vote initiated by the National Liberal Party and signed by USR and PMP was read in the joint plenum on Monday, November 20. The motion directly targeted Liviu Dragnea and PM Tudose for the lack of investments, proposed fiscal and judicial reforms. There are slim chances that the motion passes, as neither national minorities, nor UDMR offered their support. The motion has raised a number of 148 signatures, insufficient for toppling the Government. At the end of the sitting, Chamber of Deputies Secretary Ioana Bran could not provide a date for the vote on the motion.

Weekly Policy and Political Report November 6 – 13, 2017
PSD's Liviu Dragnea is once again in the line of fire, as new charges of abuse of office and establishment of a criminal group in relation with Teleorman-based TelDrum have been presented by the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA). On November 13, the Directorate announced in a press release that PSD chairman and Deputies’ Chamber Speaker Liviu Dragnea is being prosecuted over the establishment of a criminal group, abuse of office and financial improprieties while he was chairman of the Teleorman County Council. Eight other persons linked to TelDrum are also under investigation. According to DNA’s release, the case was opened based on a complaint from OLAF (European Anti-Fraud Office) sent on September 30, 2016, due to suspicions over illegal obtainment based on misinterpretations of European funds for rehabilitation works on county roads. Weeks before the adoption of the Budget for 2018, the ruling coalition could be facing a vote in Parliament over the immunity of Deputies’ Chamber Speaker Dragnea. So far, DNA did not give any signs of an eventual request to lift Dragnea’s immunity, but it would not be a surprise such a request is submitted in Parliament. However, if it comes to that, the opposition is unlikely to raise the votes for Dragnea's immunity lift. Similarly, PNL’s no-confidence vote has close to no chance to pass in Parliament.
