Romania’s PM-designate fails to win parliament confidence


Romania‘s designated Prime Minister Dacian Ciolos failed to win a parliamentary vote of confidence for his minority government, as widely expected on Wednesday, prolonging a political stalemate at a time of rising COVID-19 infections, according to Reuters.

Romania, one of the European Union‘s poorest states, has been in political paralysis since a Liberal-led cabinet was toppled by parliament on October 5, threatening recovery and efforts to cut twin deficits at a time of rising energy prices.

Under the constitution, President Klaus Iohannis would need to make a new nomination after consultations with political groupings, likely from the ranks of his Liberal party.
