Romanian government survives yet another motion of no confidence

Newsroom 17/03/2011 | 07:28

The Romanian government survived its eighth no-confidence motion after the opposition failed to acquire the necessary number of votes. The motion was submitted by the opposition over the country’s new Labor Code for which the government sought lawmakers’ vote on confidence last week. Following this procedure, according to the Constitution, the new Labor Code bill is considered to be passed and needs only to be approved by President Traian Basescu in order to become law.

236 votes would have been necessary to pass the motion but only 216 lawmakers cast their vote. 212 votes were for the motion and 4 against. As on previous occasions, MP’s from the ruling coalition abstained from voting. Only five MP’s, four from the Liberal Democratic Party (PDL) and one from the Democratic Alliance of Hungarians in Romania (UDMR) voted, their option being against the motion.
