Concerns in PSD before the motion of censure. The great dilemma of the Social Democrats


The National Political Council of PSD met on Tuesday, June 8, at 14:00, and the main topic on the agenda was the calendar for submitting the motion of censure.

Political sources revealed to Ziare.com that several Social Democrat leaders expressed concern at the meeting that the censure motion could have a resounding failure in Parliament, in the context in which the dissatisfaction between PNL and USRPLUS they have flattened lately.

Moreover, there are social democrats who claim that the failure of a censorship motion would be a real support for Florin Citu in the internal race regarding the PNL leadership, social democratic sources specified for Ziare.com

“At this time we do not have the necessary votes to pass the censorship motion. It is too early, calculations are still being made. We do not know if we can bring the necessary votes from PNL or USRPLUS. It is complicated. There are colleagues who say that the censorship motion is rather it will help Florin Citu rather than confuse him. They are talking, we are looking for solutions “, PSD sources explained.

How many votes are missing?

We remind you that Ziare.com consulted the website of the Chamber of Deputies and that of the Senate the other day and calculated how things are at the level of parliamentary groups and how many votes the opposition would need to remove the Citu Government.


Thus, PSD has 157 parliamentarians (110 deputies and 47 senators), while AUR has 44 parliamentarians (31 in the Chamber of Deputies and 13 in the Senate), which means a number of 201 votes for a censure motion. To these votes can be added the votes of the 18 deputies of the national minorities, as well as of the 4 non-affiliated parliamentarians. Therefore, according to the latest configuration of the Romanian Parliament, the motion of censure filed by PSD is doomed to failure. That is if the Social Democrats fail to break away from the PNL or USRPLUS, amid tensions between the two parties.

Marcel Ciolacu announces, at the end of the debates in the Parliament on the PNRR topic, that PSD will submit a motion of censure on June 14.

“Today it was not presented in the plenary of the PNRR parliament. All we know is that it does not aim at Romania’s development, but an austerity plan. For all Romanians, the PSD’s answer can only be one: on June 14 we submit a motion of censure with the main object the failure of the Government regarding PNRR “, said Ciolacu.

The PSD leader also stressed that PNL will not bring down its own Government, but noted that there are two camps in USR PLUS.

“I am firmly convinced that PNL will not bring down its own Government because it cannot. Now let’s see if USR or PLUS will bring down the Citu Government. It is not enough that there are three governments in one, we now see that there are two camps in inside USR, one is USR and one is PLUS and everyone has their own requirements “, Ciolacu declared.
