BUCHAREST (Romania), October 6 (SeeNews) – Romanian opposition National Liberal Party, PNL, and the Democratic Union of the Hungarians in Romania, UDMR, on Tuesday filed a no-confidence motion against the minority government led by Prime Minister Emil Boc, private broadcaster Antenna 3 reported.
The motion was signed by 124 members of parliament. It will be submitted to the parliament's upper chamber, the Senate, later in the day, Antenna 3 reported.
A debate on the motion and a vote are expected to take place on Wednesday, coinciding with a protest rally in Bucharest planned by trade unions.
Earlier on Tuesday Boc, who is also leader of ruling Democrat-Liberal Party, PD-L, said his cabinet will seek a vote of confidence over a new pension draft law backed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
The bill is a requirement in the 20-billion euro ($29.5 billion) IMF-led agreement which Romania signed in March. It is part of a broader reform package that includes a wage law designed to cut government spending, restructuring of the public sector and overhauling of the education system.
Last week Romania’s two-party cabinet collapsed after the Social Democrats left it after nine months of uneasy coalition relationship with PD-L.
