Ten parliamentarians representing both the ruling and the Opposition parties submitted a new set of modifications for the Referendum Law. According to the new suggestions, the president can not convoke a referendum on national interest issues in case he’s already subject to suspension procedures.

Governing Liberals, alongside with all main opposition parties saw their attempt to suspend president Basescu rendered useless by a call for a referendum on uninominal vote, coming from the president.

Even more, in case the president desires to initiate such a popular consultation, the date for the referendum will be set by the Government.

Democrats (the root party of president Traian Basescu) already announced they would challenge the attempt in the Constitutional Court.
