Social Democratic government of Romania under Prime Minister Viorica Dancila was voted out of office by the parliament on Thursday. The motion of no confidence brought by 238 MPs and Senators of six political parties. The opposition parties accused Dancila of incompetence, lack of public investment and weak use of available EU funds.

Dancila served as Prime Minister of Romania from 29 January 2018 to October 10, 2019. She is the first woman in Romanian history to hold both the office of Prime Minister and president of the PSD.

Until the new government takes office, Dancila will provisionally continue the business, with limited powers. She may no longer issue urgent regulations. It was initially open, whether it comes to new elections or whether the opposition supports, together with renegade parliamentarians of Danciila’s party PSD, a new government.

In Brussels, there is an urgent need for a new proposal from the Romanian Government for the appointment of the EU Commission post. To what extent this is still decided by Dancila, was initially unclear.

According to Romanian media reports, most recently, Dancila’s proposed Rovana Plumb was rejected by the Legal Affairs Committee of the European Parliament over questionable campaign financing practices. Dancila’s subsequent staff proposal, Dan Nica, was reportedly rejected by President-elect EU Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.
