The Senate approved on Monday the draft bills that amend the justice laws after MPs in the Chamber of Deputies voted favorably the changes last week. The changes are backed by the center left coalition PSD-ALDE.

The senators passed the draft bill that amends the law regarding the judicial organization, the one that amends the status of judges and prosecutors as well as the draft bill that amends the law regulating the organization and functioning of the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM).

The draft bills had been voted initially in December despite street protests and were challenged at the Constitutional Court (CCR). Constitutional judges decided that certain provisions in the draft bill had to be amended.

Following, today’s vote, the liberals announced that they would challenge the draft bills at the CCR once again. President Klaus Iohannis, who has to sign the draft bills into law, also has the right to attack the changes at the CCR.

In Parliament, the changes to the justice laws were debated in a special committee that was headed by MP Florin Iordache, part of the left wing party PSD.
