Romanian PM quits after Election setback

Soon after election setback on December 6, Romanian Prime Minister Ludovic Orban has resigned.

It must be noted that after the much tighter race than was predicted, Orban had initially claimed victory in the country’s parliamentary election while his pro-Europe National Liberal Party (PNL) was confident enough to remain in power through an alliance with at least a smaller party.

But lately, Romania’s opposition Social Democratic Party (PSD) gained a better-than expected result in the Sunday’s election.

Amid the now familiar virus safety measures of social distancing, mask wearing and hand hygiene, the voter turnout remained low while over 18 million Romanians were eligible to take part in the vote.
