Romania may have first woman prime minister

Romania’s Social Democratic Party (PSD) will propose Viorica Dancila, a member of the European Parliament, for the prime minister seat, according to sources within the party. If president Klaus Iohannis accepts to nominate her for this position and the Parliament votes her cabinet, she may become Romania’s first woman prime minister, says Romania-Insider.com.

PSD’s executive committee met on Tuesday morning to find a new prime minister after withdrawing support for Mihai Tudose, who has led the PSD-ALDE government since July 2017. Tudose officially presented his resignation to president Klaus Iohannis, who called on the political parties to rapidly come up with new solutions for the government. While opposition parties asked for early elections, the PSD-ALDE coalition, which still holds the majority in the Parliament, said it would come up with a new prime minister and threatened to suspend the president if he doesn’t acknowledge the parliamentary majority.

Viorica Dancila, PSD’s proposed prime minister, is the president of PSD’s women organization. The proposal to back her for prime minister was voted by almost all of the party’s executive committee’s members (there was only one abstention), according to News.ro.
