Bucharest, December 23 The two houses of the Romanian Parliament held a joint meeting on the 23rd to pass a vote of confidence in the new government.
On the same day, the parliament passed a vote of confidence in the new government led by Vasily-Florin Kechu by a vote of 260 to 186 against.
Because the ruling coalition has a majority of seats in Parliament, the governance platform and government composition have been agreed over the past week, and the new government will receive a vote of confidence in Parliament in just one day.
Speaking before the parliamentary vote, Kechu said that the most important task of the government at present is to ensure public health, and he hoped that Romania would complete the coronavirus vaccination as soon as possible to tide over the health crisis and revitalize the economy.
He said that the COVID-19 epidemic has made it increasingly necessary to implement a new model of public governance and economic and social development. The new economic and social development model is first of all to strengthen investment, which is the “engine” of Romania’s economic development.
The new government led by Kechu consists of 21 people, including the Prime Minister, 2 Deputy Prime Ministers and 18 ministers.
The two deputy prime ministers are Dan Barna, chairman of the League for the Rescue of Romania, and Kelemen Hunol, chairman of the Hungarian Democratic Union. The new government will be sworn in at the presidential palace at 8 p.m. on the 23rd.
Romanian President Johannes nominated Kechu from the National Liberal Party as the new Prime Minister on the 22nd and authorized him to form a cabinet.
According to the Romanian Constitution, Ketsu must submit the list of government members and the platform of governance to Parliament within 10 days, and be sworn in after obtaining a vote of confidence in Parliament.
On the 6th of this month, Romania held a general parliamentary election. In the election of both houses of parliament, the Social Democratic Party led by nearly 30% of the vote, but did not reach the seats required to form a separate cabinet.
On the evening of the 21st, the National Liberal Party, the Alliance for the Rescue of Romania-Liberal Union and Unity Party, and the Hungarian Democratic Union signed an agreement to form a center-right ruling coalition. The ruling coalition has a total of 244 seats in Parliament, which exceeds half of the parliamentary seats required to form a cabinet.
