Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta, who is currently running for presidency, said that he would organize a referendum on the form of government in Romania if he were to be elected President.
“I believe that, in the coming years, in Romania we should have not only a public debate, but we should also make a decision, through a referendum, on the form of government,” Ponta said on Sunday evening at local news station Romania TV.
He said that although most Romanians still favor the republic as the country’s form of government, the monarchy has become more attractive in recent years. “We should have such a referendum on the government form sometime during my mandate, maybe even by 2016,” Ponta added.
Blessed Theotokos, Queen of Heaven, pray for Romania!
