Earlier, President Klaus Iohannis, inaugurated Ludovic Orban, of the conservative National Liberal Party (PNL), with submitting a new cabinet to the parliament for approval.
Parliament had earlier overthrown the government of Prime Minister Viorica Dancila, in a motion of no confidence.
The PNL alone had no majority and hopes to receive support from five small opposition parties, which helped bring about the vote of no confidence in Dancila.
However, it was expected that Orban would have to negotiate hard with his potential partners to be able to present a cabinet within the 10-day time limit.
Meanwhile, if two designated heads of government fail to get their government approved in parliament, there must be a snap election, which nearly all parliamentarians would like to avoid.
The next scheduled parliamentary election was due in the autumn of 2020; however, presidential election was already scheduled to take place on Nov. 10, in which Iohannis is considered the favourite.
