Former prime minister Mihai Tudose has followed Commissioner Corina Crețu quitting Romania's ruling Social Democrats (PSD) further weakening the parliamentary grip of the party and its leader, Liviu Dragnea.
Romania's left-wing Prime Minister Mihai Tudose resigned on Monday (15 January) after losing the backing of his party due to internal power struggles, barely seven months after his predecessor suffered the same fate.
The European Commission asked the Romanian government on Thursday (24 August) for more details about a proposed overhaul of the judiciary, expressing concern it may be a step back in the fight against corruption.
Romania's outgoing economy minister Mihai Tudose was designated as the new prime minister on Monday (26 June), days after the ruling Social Democrats torpedoed their own government following an internal power row.
