Romania’s Social Democrats are undecided on backing PM-Designate


Romania’s opposition Social Democrats haven’t decided whether to back a government proposed by Prime Minister-Designate Nicolae Ciuca after a first round of talks revealed outstanding differences between the two parties, according to Bloomberg. 

“The Social Democrats, who control the most seats in parliament, favor a short-term government until February before early elections once the Covid-19 pandemic eases,” leader Marcel Ciolacu said Monday.

The Social Democrats asked Ciuca to incorporate 10 health, social and economic measures into his ruling plan to gain their support.

“We’ll wait to see the proposed governing program and decide on the next steps,” stated Ciolacu. 

Ciuca will also meet later Monday with Dacian Ciolos, who heads the anti-corruption USR party and whose own bid to become Prime Minister failed last week.
