President-elect Iohannis: There’s need for Constitution revision
Romanian President-elect Klaus Iohannis said on Friday that, in his opinion, a Constitution revision is necessary and he promised to be a president who will follow „the letter and the spirit” of the fundamental law.
„A revision of the Constitution is certainly necessary, for various reasons I do not want to list now, but certain amendments are needed to bring the law in line with state of things and to remove some uncertainties. Beyond these things I want to tell you firmly, today, here, that I will be the president who will follow the letter and the spirit of the Constitution. I will prove what I meant when I told my voters that I want to reconnect the Romanian president to the Constitution,” Iohannis said at a ceremony at the Constitutional Court of Romania (CCR), where he received the CCR decision confirming his election as head of state. Iohannis pointed out that the president of Romania should inspire, through his vision, the Romanian nation and through his public behavior become a model for the Romanian society.
