The President of the Senate, Liberal leader Florin Citu, answered yes to a question regarding the possibility for the voting age to be lowered to 16, mentioning that an amendment of the Constitution in this sense would be a good thing, agerpres reports."We see, for example, that in the EU the age for voters is lowered to 16 (...) From my point of view, yes. I believe it's a good thing," said Citu, when asked about the possibility of amending the Constitution by the current National Liberal Party - Social Democrat Party - Hungarian Democratic Union of Romania (PNL-PSD-UDMR) coalition.
Citu mentioned that a discussion on the matter should take place within the party in order to clarify what's desired through this amendment of the Constitution.
"We had a discussion in the Executive Bureau of the PNL. I want first to have a discussion in the party, to see what the priorities are. It's true that we have a majority now that can amend the Constitution, but this does not mean necessarily that we have to amend the Constitution, if we don't have what exactly what we should amend. There are many things that we need to discuss in the PNL first. It's true, in the past year, I saw, from experience in Parliament as well as the relations between President - Parliament - Government, Government - President, etc. that there are imbalances that could be corrected," the Senate President concluded.
