RADIO ROMANIA NEWS - The Senate Plenary voted to amend the law on the election of the President of Romania. According to the document, the presidential election will take place no more than three months before the end of the president's term and the date of the election will be set by the government at least 75 days before.

Reporter: Alina Stanuta - "PNL Senator Cristian Niculescu Tagarlas, chairman of the Legal Affairs Committee, said it was just a matter of better organisation of the elections and time left for the new president to become better acquainted with the work for which he was elected.

Cristian Niculescu Tagarlas: "The fact that the organisation of the elections has a different deadline than the one that was established until now does not affect the presidential prerogatives in any way, it is just a question of a better organisation of the elections and a reasonable time for the person who wins the elections to take up the actual work of the President, because that was the reasoning, to have a period of adaptation, of preparation for taking over the mandate from the incumbent President."

During the debates in the Senate plenary, AUR representative Sorin Lavric criticised the legislative proposal and announced his party's vote against it.

Sorin Lavric: "It puzzles me that some legal specialists agree to mutilate the electoral calendar? Because this is what happens. The bill is just the first step in a play whose outcome will be the one we all know: changing the calendar, merging the elections so that the PSD-PNL tandem wins."

The legislative proposal passed the Senate with 76 votes in favour and 20 against and now goes to the Chamber of Deputies, which is the decision-making body in this case."
