Progress Report on the Priorities of the European Commission, August 29 - September 12, 2018
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.

The Chamber of Deputies and the Senate are set to convene September 3rd (Monday) at 4:00 PM, thus signaling the start of the ordinary Parliamentary session for the second half of 2018. Between August 29 and September 2, the National Executive Committee of PSD is to convene in Neptun to trace lines of action for the upcoming year, since both presidential and European Parliament elections are to take place in 2019. The letter of PSD senator Ecaterina Andronescu requesting the resignation of Liviu Dragnea might also constitute a subject of discussion, as well as the evaluation of several Ministers’ activity in the current Gov’t. ALDE met on August 28 and on the agenda there have been new legislative proposals soon to be initiated, including the Law of Lobbying, since this type of activity is currently unregulated.

Progress Report on the Priorities of the European Commission, August 1 - 16, 2018
On Friday, August 10, approximately 100,000 people gathered in Victoria Square to challenge the current Gov’t coalition. Contrary to other such rallies from the past, this one was marked by violent incidents (e.g. the gendarmes used pepper spray and water cannons on protesters). At day’s end, several hundred people had received emergency care and one handgun is still missing. However, despite protests continuing throughout the weekend and gathering tens of thousands of people, no other major occurrences have been noted.

Progress Report on the Priorities of the European Commission, July 18 – August 1, 2018
On July 24th, PSD President Liviu Dragnea stated that the referendum for redefining the term “family” in the Constitution is to be held either on September 30th or in the first week of October. Dragnea said that the Senate should vote on the issue immediately after the end of the Parliamentary recess, in September, arguing that three million citizens support the initiative. On a related note, Dragnea also mentioned that in autumn, a separate discussion should be initiated on a law that deals with civil partnership. “I never was and never will be intolerant (…) We need to clarify the notion of family, but also that of 'civil partnership'”. Dragnea stated, however, that he maintains some reservations with regards to the possibility of same-sex couples launching an adoption claim.

Progress Report on the Priorities of the European Commission, July 4 - 18, 2018
The Parliament ends the extraordinary session this week on July 19; this means that until either a new extraordinary sitting is called, or the autumn ordinary session begins, the Government cannot adopt Emergency Ordinances. The Gov’t scheduled one last Sitting during which it can pass Emergency Ordinances for Thursday, July 19, the last day of this summer’s extraordinary parliamentary session. There is a possibility that the Parliament is called in an extraordinary session at the end of August. Over the past couple of days national media outlets covered rumors according to which the Government prepares an Emergency Ordinance on pardoning and amnesty; the rumored GEO was labeled a “second GEO 13”. G4Media broke the news on Monday July 16 citing governmental sources according to which JustMin Tudorel Toader had a meeting with PM Dăncilă. G4Media’s sources argue that PSD’s Liviu Dragnea is pushing for the adoption of the GEO. The same day, Minister Toader also met with Senate Speaker Călin Popescu Tăriceanu (ALDE). Allegedly, Tăriceanu does not endorse the GEO.
