On Friday, December 14th, 2018, the censure motion initiated by MPs from PNL, USR and PMP was filed in the Parliament. The censure motion entitled "The Dragnea-Dăncilă Government, the shame of Romania!" was signed by 163 MPs. The motion will be debated in the Parliament on Thursday, December 20th, 2018.
Shortly after filing the motion, PNL, USR and PMP MPs Florin Cîtu, Ionuţ Moşteanu and Robert Turcescu argued that, after the motion of censure, the Dăncilă Government should be sent home. Senator Florin Cîtu also implied that an important group of Senators from the PSD-ALDE coalition intend to vote in favour of the motion.
Raluca Turcan, PNL, argued that the censure motion has been announced for some time, but was only registered with the Chamber of Deputies on Friday, adding that this is the most powerful tool parliamentarians have to remove a government.
On the other hand, Former President Traian Băsescu is not as optimistic, arguing that the motion cannot pass given that the appropriate moment for it would have been in September.
President Klaus Iohannis argued that a vote of no-confidence in the Parliament is a test for both the Opposition and the Coalition and that this right of the opposition should be respected.
