Reports: Romanian president names opposition leader as next prime minister

Romanian President Klaus Iohannis named Ludovic Orban, the leader of the opposition National Liberal Party, as the country's prime minister-designate following the ouster of Viorica Dăncilă and her government last week, newswires reported Oct. 15.

Iohannis said he had asked Orban to form a transitional government that would be in place until Romania's next parliamentary election in 2020, according to Reuters. The National Liberal Party was the only group that "said directly that they were willing, even if it is very difficult, to take on the governance during this transitional period," the Associated Press reported Iohannis as saying following his talks with several political parties in a bid to form a new government.

After receiving his mandate from the president, Orban has 10 days to build parliamentary support for his government.

Dăncilă and her government were toppled Oct. 10 after losing a no-confidence motion in parliament.
