Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Romania's Covid 'fourth wave' surpasses first outbreak, 4 Oct
"With a total record of over 11,000 daily Covid cases, Romania significantly outpaces both the European and world average. ... Plummeting vaccine interest in Romania comes from a long-standing mistrust in authorities, vaccine-scepticism, plus officials' poor approach in dealing with the virus.... "We need to overcome the political gridlock. We need authorities to be able to fight the coronavirus, as well as rising gas and electricity prices", Iulius Marian Firczak MP told EUobserver"
Romanian political parties prepare for a no-confidence vote
"To overthrow the government, 234 votes are needed. The three parties that want to oust the prime minister have more than 280, but their common interests stop there."
Romanian government falls after losing no-confidence vote, poll of polls
The opposition center-left Social Democratic Party (PSD) and far-right Alliance for the Unity of Romanians (AUR) were joined in supporting the no-confidence motion by ex-coalition members from the Union to Save Romania (USR, formerly known as USR-PLUS). The government collapse could lead to early elections in Romania, which are triggered when a prime minister and their cabinet are rejected twice in a row by MPs. That could take months, leaving the country in limbo. The PSD has demanded an election as soon as possible.
