Progress Report on the Priorities of the European Commission, June 27 - July 4, 2018
The draft Bill that amends the Criminal Code (Pl-x 406/2018) was adopted by the Plenum of the Chamber of Deputies with 167 votes in favour, 97 against and 19 abstentions. Representatives of the national minorities were the deciding factor in approving the draft bill, since several MPs from the ruling coalition were absent. Nine deputies from the national minorities voted in favour of the bill, thus securing and surpassing the 165-vote threshold required for the bill to pass. President Klaus Iohannis announced that he is to notify Constitutional Court over the Criminal Codes and that “all constitutional instruments are to be used to challenge these draft bills”. He added that PSD managed to pass the Criminal Code at a record pace through Parliamentary proceedings, with virtually no debate whatsoever. Former CCR President Augustin Zegrean sided with Klaus Iohannis, stating that “it is regrettable that it has come to this.”

The motion of no confidence initiated by PNL, USR and PMP against the Government led by PM Viorica Dăncilă failed at the vote held on 27th of June with 166 votes in favor and 4 against. A total of 233 votes was necessary for the motion to pass, yet the odds were more than unfavorable. Even PNL President Ludovic Orban maintained some reservations concerning its outcome, despite negotiations having taken place, while UDMR President Kelemen Hunor claimed that there is no chance for the motion to pass, even with the endorsement of national minorities. UDMR decided not to take part in the final vote, but attended the debate. On the day of the motion, a crowd of 4,000 protesters gathered in front of the Parliament building demanding the resignation of PM Dăncilă.

On June 20, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Teodor Meleșcanu stated that the report concerning the potential relocation of the Romanian Embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is to be finalised in two weeks' time. This comes after the statement of President Klaus Iohannis a day earlier in which he reiterated that even though a report is being conducted on the matter, ultimately the decision does not rest with the Government. He also stressed that "such a decision would automatically invalidate any chance of Romania gaining a seat as a UN Security Council non-permanent member".
