BUCHAREST | U.S. Ambassador of Romania, Mark Gitenstein, urged the government, parliament and interim president Antonescu respect the Constitutional Court if President Traian Basescu’s impeachment referendum succedes. This is a direct intervention firm and rare from an American diplomat in Bucharest in any political struggle.
Constitutional Court ruled yesterday that the president’s impeachment referendum will be valid only with the turnout of 50% plus one of voters registered on the list. USL insisted that the vote will run on the Emergency Ordinance that says that the President may be removed by votes of 50% plus one of voters turnout.
