The draft Government Emergency Ordinance concerning certain budget measures for 2017, for the prorogation of certain deadlines, as well as for modifying and supplementing certain normative acts, published in the Official Gazette as GEO No. 9/2017, was initially put up for debate on January 23, 2017, on the Finance Ministry's website, as part of a legislative package that included the draft budget for 2017. The draft GEO for the prorogation of certain terms, which aims to amend Law of Public Finances No. 500/2002, was adopted two days later, in the Government Sitting held on January 25. (Initially, the Government planned to adopt the budget for 2017 during the same Government Sitting, but PM Sorin Grindeanu and PSD President Liviu Dragnea demanded the Executive to come up with a revised version of the budget, which was later on presented and adopted on January 27).

As the Parliamentary recess ended on Wednesday February 1st, MPs resumed their activity in the first ordinary session of the current term.

For the second week in a row, tens of thousands of Romanians took to the streets protesting against a government proposal to pardon prisoners and modify the Criminal Codes. In Bucharest, the number of protesters reached around 50,000. While the main theme of the protests was anti-corruption, protesters also turned against the Government and the ruling Social Democratic Party (PSD). Facing public pressure, the prospects of a referendum and President Iohannis’ opposition, Minister of Justice Florin Iordache announced that the Parliament would decide on the matter of the two Ordinances. At the end of the public debate session held on Monday, January 30th, Minister Iordache concluded that the draft Ordinances are going to be submitted to the Parliament and passed as organic laws. In the meanwhile Minister Iordache says he is working on redrafting the two bills, after the public debate held on Monday, January 30.

Weekly Policy and Political Report, January 16 - 23
Amid massive protests held on Sunday evening in Bucharest and in other major cities around the country, President Klaus Iohannis announced on Monday night that he would initiate procedures for organizing a referendum on the topic of pardoning and amending the Criminal Code and the Criminal Procedure Code. “I will initiate procedures for a referendum that would allow Romanians to express on whether or not they agree with these measures, given that when they voted, these themes were not part of PSD’s Governing program”, the President stated. According to Law 3/2000, the President has to consult with the Parliament on the matter of the referendum, but the Parliament can only issue a point of view on the matter. The referendum is valid if at least 30% of persons registered on the permanent electoral lists vote. The results are validated if the valid votes represent at least 25% of those registered on the permanent electoral lists.
