BUCHAREST, Oct. 10, 2019 - Romania's Prime Minister Viorica Dancila (front L) attends a no-confidence vote against her government in Bucharest, capital of Romania, Oct. 10, 2019. The Romanian Social Democratic government collapsed on Thursday, losing a censure motion initiated by main opposition National Liberal Party and supported by almost all the other parties in the parliament. The motion of no confidence garnered 238 votes in favor, five votes more than the required minimum of 233 votes, or 50 percent plus one in the 465-seat bicameral parliament. Thus the cabinet led by Social Democrat leader Viorica Dancila became the fourth government impeached in Romania in the last 30 years.
