Romanian Ombudsman Dismissed by the Governing Coalition in Parliament

Romanian Ombudsman, Renate Weber, was dismissed by the governing coalition on Wednesday, June 16, in Parliament. The MPs rejected the activity reports for the last three years, thus leading to the dismissal of the Ombudsman.

Romanian Ombudsman plays a critical role in Romania. It is the institution that is able to contest the government’s ordinances at the Romanian Constitutional Court. This allows the Ombudsman to play the role of the Opposition in certain circumstances and this is a situation which the current governing coalition wants to avoid.

Reportedly, the position has already been negotiated to be offered to the Hungarian minority party, UDMR.

The dismissed Ombudsman considers her resignation as a direct consequence of her gesture to contest in front of the Constitutional Court an emergency ordinance. The act allowed private hospitals to have access to public funds with the approval of only one minister. The Romanian Constitutional Court said the act was unconstitutional but, according to Renate Weber, the Government prepares a similar ordinance once again. By having a friendly Ombudsman on their side, the coalition members could pass the ordinance without the risk of it being contested.
