Progress Report on the Priorities of the European Commission, October 24 - November 7, 2018
PSD CEx Meeting On Monday, November 5th, 2018, PSD organized an Executive Committee (CEx) meeting. During this meeting, the main topic of discussion was the exclusion of key members of PSD who “negotiated against the interests of this party”, PSD vice-president Adrian Țuțuianu and MP Marian Neacșu were excluded from PSD because they were „hurting the stability of the party”. Given that the MPs had a modicum of support within the party, there are questions regarding how PSD will maintain its parliamentarian majority. However, ALDE president Călin-Popescu Tăriceanu insisted that PSD-ALDE will maintain a comfortable majority. Another CEx meeting is due to take place next week when PM Viorica Dăncilă will present the evaluation of the Ministers and will discuss a Government reshuffle.

Progress Report on the Priorities of the European Commission, September 26 - October 10, 2018
The Romanian constitutional referendum which aimed to modify the definition of “family” from article 48 of the Romanian Constitution was held on the 6th and 7th October. Despite the extraordinary measures employed by the Government to organize the referendum over two days, the turnout was unexpectedly low. Thus, only 21,08% of the voting population participated in the referendum, according to the Central Electoral Bureau, which meant that the threshold of validation was not attained (30% of the population with a right to vote). Preliminary results of the referendum show that 91,57% of people voted in favour of the amendment, while a merely 6,46 % dissented. Despite this, the national referendum that cost around EUR 40 million was invalidated and will produce no effects upon the Romanian Constitution.

On September 9, The President of the Chamber of Deputies, Liviu Dragnea, attended a talk-show on Antena 3 TV station where he mentioned the current pressing issues for the party (and for himself). The internal divide within PSD continued to grow after last week’s statements of Bucharest Mayor Gabriela Firea against Dragnea. The latter alluded that Firea was being manipulated and that it was completely unreasonable of her to ask for the resignation of Carmen Dan (Minister of Internal Affairs) without any evidence. Even though he stated that her position as mayor is not threatened, Dragnea reminded that he was the one that proposed and endorsed Firea’s candidacy for the City Hall.

Fiscal Policies Review August 27- Sept 3, 2018
Following the Governments’ claim on August 24th that the President attempts to block the adoption of the first budget adjustment this year, by refusing to immediately convene the Supreme Council of Defense (CSAT), thus allegedly jeopardizing the complete and timely payment of pensions, allowances, salaries of public employees, as well as the provision of medical services and ensuring citizens' safety, the Presidency announced on August 24th that the Secretariat of the CSAT has already initiated the procedures for issuing a Council decision on the rectification of the state budget of the institutions with responsibilities in the field of national security for 2018. According to the same source, President decided to convene the CSAT on September 4th since the individual agreement of all Council members required by art. 6 par. (3) of the Law no. 415/2002 for issuing decisions has not been met. On the same date, President Klaus Iohannis declared that “the Government can pass any budget adjustment without CSAT’s notice […] with the exception of the field of national security.”
