September 24 (SeeNews) - Romanian opposition Social Democrats (PSD) on Monday filed a no-confidence motion against the Liberals-led minority government of Prime Minister Calin Popescu Tariceanu over alleged stalling of economic reforms in the EU newcomer.
"At 4 p.m. [1300 GMT] the motion was filed to the two chambers of parliament," PSD vice president Victor Ponta told SeeNews.
The motion was filed by 139 members of the 469-seat bicameral parliament, 23 above the required minimum of 116.
PSD said earlier on Monday it will propose the motion to be presented for debate at a joint session of the two houses of the Romanian parliament on Wednesday. The party will also propose that the debate of the motion and the vote were held on October 3.
Romania's government in June survived a no-confidence vote with help from PSD. That motion was filed by the Democratic Party (PD), which was sent in opposition in April when Tariceanu ousted all PD ministers from its cabinet.
So far, the PSD has not said why they had withdrawn their support for Tariceanu's government.
Fifty percent plus one vote, or 235 votes in total, are needed for the motion to succeed.
Tariceanu's National Liberal Party has a total of 76 seats in the two houses of parliament, while the PSD has 146. The PD, which also is expected to vote against the government, holds 76 seats.
Romania joined the EU in January.
