After this week's negotiations with President Iohannis, PSD's Liviu Dragnea proposed Sevil Shhaideh for the position of Prime Minister. However, as Dragnea stressed during his speech, Sevil Shhaideh would have limited powers.  "I take full political accountability. (…) I do not want the possibility of a term that it could have been mine to be started by forcing an unjust sentence and a deeply unconstitutional law, that for the time being did not give me the possibility to ask for this position." said Dragnea during the speech in which he announced PSD&ALDE's proposal for the position of Prime Minister.  Dragnea's statement confirms speculations on his bid for the position of Prime Minister. In this context, the appointment of Sevil Shhaideh may very well be a temporary solution until the existing legislation preventing Dragnea to take the office of Prime Minister is either repealed or amended so that it allows the PSD leader to be Prime Minister.

Progress Report on the Priorities of the European Commission, December 7 - 14, 2016
Post-electoral uncertainties are in full swing as the Social Democratic Party (PSD) and the Liberal Democrat Alliance (ALDE) declined President Klaus Iohannis' invitation to take part in negotiations over the appointment of the future Prime Minister. A crucial element for the current situation is the fact that the Central Electoral Bureau has yet to release the final official results of the December 11 elections, including the results after the redistribution of the remaining votes. In this context, Dragnea's decision to boycott the consultations, defer from designating a Prime Minister, and stall the post-electoral process is linked to the uncertainties on the redistribution of votes.

Progress Report on the Priorities of the European Commission November 30 - December 7, 2016
The electoral campaign entered its final week and political parties are taking last-minute measures in order to secure a higher number of votes. Whereas during the previous week, Social Democrats were hinting at a possible break-up between Dacian Cioloș and the National Liberals, this week it was PNL’s turn to stand up against the Social Democrats. Recent debates have revolved around the office of Prime Minister. On the one hand, USR and PNL have already designated PM Cioloș for a second term. On the other hand, PSD adopted a different strategy and avoided designating a Prime Minister just yet. Whereas the beginning of the electoral campaign focused on electoral platforms and governing plans, the latest topics of electoral debate revolved around the appointment of a new prime minister.
