The Parliament disapproved the request to organize a referendum and considering that the Parliament's opinion is consultative, I decided to sign the decree for the referendum, President Traian Basescu announced in a press conference. Basescu added that the Liberal's initiative to change the electoral law and decrease the number of Parliamentarians can be done at the discretion of various moguls or influent businessmen.

Here are Basescu's main declarations:

  • The Parliament denied my request to organize a referendum in the same time with the Presidential elections

  • The referendum will be organized at November 2009
  • For five years I did not manage to convince political parties to revise the constitution
