Dacian Ciolos, Romania’s designated PM, fails to win the confidence of the Romanian Parliament. With only 88 votes in favor and 184 against his cabinet, Dacian Ciolos is no longer the hope for ending the political crisis.
He needed 234 votes to pass his cabinet, but he failed to persuade the necessary number of MPs to offer him their confidence.
The political crisis continues in Romania, a country that tops all the negative records of the pandemic. At the moment, no political alliance of the right-wing parties can form the majority, as PNL and USR seem to have cut off the dialogue.
President Klaus Iohannis called for the second round of consultations with the leaders of the Parliamentary parties on Thursday, October 21.
