President Klaus Iohannis announced that he will call the new Parliament on Tuesday and that on Wednesday and Thursday he will hold consultations with the political parties. "I will call the new Parliament on Tuesday, 20 December at noon, consultations with the political parties are next on Wednesday and Thursday," Iohannis said.
He congratulated the parties that entered Parliament and particularly the Social Democratic Party (PSD) for the result obtained in the elections. "I want to congratulate the parties that have managed to enter Parliament, of course, the PSD in the first place, which obtained the highest score. I also congratulate all the 465 lawmakers who will make up the new Parliament of Romania," the head of state said.
According to him, no party emerged with absolute majority following the vote in the parliamentary election. "In this context, speaking of the final result of the elections, following the discussions in the public space, I have heard very many times the syntagm 'people's vote'. Indeed, the elections are the people's vote, and the people's vote in these elections hasn't designated any party with absolute majority," Iohannis showed.
