 New resignations from PSD:  On January 29th, 2019, former PM Mihai Tudose announced that he resigned from PSD and moved to Pro-Romania, the party lead by Victor Ponta.   On January 31st, 2019, Deputy Georgian Pop has announced his resignation from PSD. He also mentioned that he has joined Pro-Romania because of Liviu Dragnea who has fueled conflicts between the members of PSD.   On February 1st, 2019, Deputies Oana Silvia Vlăduca and Corina Bogaciu announced that they have also resigned from PSD and joined Pro-Romania.   Considering the above, the PSD-ALDE coalition no longer has a majority in the Chamber of Deputies, with 4 votes short from being able to pass laws. Thus, the coalition now needs to rely on the votes from UDMR.

Weekly Political Review    Government Reshuffle – updates On January 17th, 2019, President Klaus Iohannis wrote a letter to PM Viorica Dăncilă arguing that the proposals for the Ministry of Transports and the Ministry of Regional Development do not respect the requirements of the law. More precisely, the Romanian President argued that the that the documentation accompanying the proposal is incomplete, and, therefore, he cannot approve this request. In response, on January 21st, PM Viorica Dăncilă reiterated the proposals, sending the President the required documents.   While members of the opposition, such as Dan Barna, USR, consider that Iohannis’ refusal is justified, PSD members have been outraged by the repeated refusal. Toni Greblă, the Secretary General of the Government argued that Iohannis has no real reason for this refusal.

Weekly Political Review Interim ministers for Transports and Regional Development  On January 7th, 2019, PM Viorica Dăncilă announced that she proposed Eugen Teodorovici, the Minister of Public Finance to be the interim minister for the Ministry of Regional Development and Rovana Plumb, the Minister for European Funds, as interim minister for the Ministry of Transports.  Previously, on January 3rd, 2019, President Klaus Iohannis had signed the decrees to accept the resignations of Paul Stănescu as Minister for Regional Development and Lucian Șova as Minister for Transports. However, in a press-statement on January 4th, Iohannis announced that he will refuse the proposed minsters for these positions: Lia Olguța Vasilescu and Mircea Drăghici.  PNL president Ludovic Orban approved of Iohannis’ decision and argued that the two proposed ministers do not have any knowledge in these areas and, therefore, are not fit for these positions. USR leader Dan Barna argued that the conflict between the Government and Klaus Iohannis is a direct consequence of irresponsible governance. On the other hand, an official press-release from PSD shows that the party condemns Iohannis’ actions that are only meant to block the activities of the Government to stop PSD from respecting its promises towards the Romanian citizens.
