The Chamber of Deputies and the Senate in the plenary meeting on Wednesday voted on the appointment of Daniel Barbu as Permanent Electoral Authority (AEP) President.
He was appointed by 241 votes to 63.
On May 22 the joint legal committees unanimously validated the files of the two candidates proposed for the office of AEP President - Daniel Barbu - proposed by the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats (ALDE) groups, and Maria Krause, proposed by the Save Romania Union (USR).
The AEP President cannot be a member of a political party. Within 15 days since the mandate validation, he must give up the political career. The mandate lasts 8 years and can only be renewed once.
