Exorcism in Romania – commentary
The most toxic government in recent history, the Chernobyl of Romania, has been relegated to history. These are just some of the qualifiers the Romanian national press decorated the incumbent government with, giving a clear opinion about the performance of the Social Democratic Party’s (PSD) rule.
The fact that the downfall of the government took so long is mainly because some things need time to come to a head. In the barely thirty years of modern, post-Communist Romanian democracy, this was the fourth cabinet ousted with a motion of no confidence. While it only required 233 votes to pass, eventually 238 representatives and senators of the bicameral Romanian parliament voted against the government of Viorica Dăncilă.
