President Klaus Iohannis said on Thursday he supports the Government's demarche to assume responsibility in Parliament for the two-round mayoral elections."Today, the Government has decided to assume responsibility for the modification of the mayoral election law, namely it is intended to come back to the two-round election. It is a very appropriate choice the Government made and I totally support them in this demarche. It is the right way for electing a mayor. (...) I encourage them to go further," President Iohannis said in a press statement at the Cotroceni Presidential Palace.
In the Government meeting on Thursday, Prime Minister Ludovic Orban announced that the Executive would assume responsibility in Parliament for the two-round mayoral elections.
