Romania’s ruling party appoints new PM

By mid-June 2017 Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu had lost the support of his own PSD; on 14 June PSD leader Liviu Dragnea announced the resignation of all PSD ministers, and a no confidence motion was scheduled for 21 June. In the vote, the opposition abstained, but the PSD and ALDE majority succeeded in defeating the prime minister. On 26 June the PSD nominated outgoing economy minister Mihai Tudose as prime minister. He named a cabinet two days later and the government was approved by parliament on 29 June.
