Romanian Traian Basescu was suspended on Friday July 6, 2012 after senators and deputies voted in plenum of the two parliamentary chambers. 256 MPs voted for suspension, two votes were canceled and 114 against.

Senate President Crin Antonescu apparently fulfilled his dream as he became Romania’s interim president. The referendum is due to be held on July 29, when Romanians will decide on whether Traian Basescu should be dismissed or remain in charge.

This is the second time when Parliament suspends Basescu. A previous attempt to remove country’s leader from office occured in 2007 when Basescu who enjoyed much more popularity was reconfirmed as president after overwhelmingly winning the referendum.

The ruling coalition USL (PSD, PNL, PC) blame Basescu for violating the constitution and overstepping his authority despite the fact that the Constitutional Court cound not clearly back the accusations.

Romania’s ruling government led by the controversial Prime Minister Victor Ponta, initiated the impeachment proceedings at short time after USL official Adrian Nastase had been sentenced to jail and before PC senator Dan Voiculescu was scheduled to appear in court.
