Ponta reshuffles Romanian cabinet
Text size Aa Aa

Romania’s Prime Minister has reshuffled his cabinet after his interior minister resigned.

Victor Ponta also replaced his justice and foreign ministers along with three others.

The reshuffle comes as the Constitutional Court has delayed a decision over a failed referendum to impeach the country’s president.

The vote on July 29 didn’t reach the required 50 percent voter turnout threshold.

Interior Minister Ioan Rus said he faced political pressure in the wake of the Court’s postponement.
