Romanian Constitutional Court will decide on Referendum on August 21

Romania’s Constitutional Court has decided to pull forward its decision on the validity of the impeachment referendum for President Traian Basescu and announce it next Tuesday, August 21.

Initially, the Court had stated it will not pronounce its decision until September 12, but it is now saying that it will act faster so as not to prolong the heavy institutional crisis that has grappled Romania.

The Court has stated it wants to check electoral lists of voters before it approves the result, so as to see whether the turnout of 46.24% is correct.
