On 20 May 1990, 30 years ago, the first presidential and parliamentary elections were held in Romania, after the fall of the communist regime and after the December 1989 Revolution. Presidential and parliamentary elections were held on the basis of Decree-Law No.
Founded on May 24, 1875 under the lead of Ion C. Bratianu (1875 - 1891), the National Liberal Party (PNL) is the oldest political party in Romania. In 1947 PNL stopped its activity as a result of the abolition of political pluralism by the communist regime.
The USR PLUS Alliance reiterates the possibility of granting the investiture vote to a transitional minority government, but "only with the fulfillment of certain conditions", noting "the lack of political will to swiftly set off early elections".
Prime Minister and Social Democratic Party leader Viorica Dancila said that Victor Ponta's untruthful and two-faced demeanor is one of the reasons why she did not accept a cooperation with the latter's PRO Romania party.
Senate Chairman Calin Popescu-Tariceanu told a plenary debate in Parliament on a motion of censure against the Ponta Government that the National Liberal Party (PNL) has no right to talk about legitimacy, adding that it is for the first time in the history of PNL when its national leader was appointed instead of elected to office.
Prime minister, Victor Ponta says in a message on Friday, on the occasion of the International Labour Day, that 'Romania is a working people's country, and the solution for an economy that would bring prosperity to all (...) is to support all of those who are working.'
