Legislative

The Democratic Liberal Party (PD-L) won the general election with the most seats in Parliament.

However an alliance between the left-wing Social Democratic Party (PSD) and the right-wing Conservative Party (PC) scored better than the PD-L in the public vote by a tiny margin. Nevertheless no party won a majority in Parliament. The PSD+PC won 33.09% in the lower Chamber of Deputies and 34.16% in the upper chamber, the Senate, in the 30 November vote. Meanwhile the PD-L won 32.36 per cent in the vote for the Romanian legislative election, 2008 and 33.57 per cent for the Senate. But the PD-L won 166 seats in the two chambers of Parliament as opposed to the PSD+PC's 163.

Famous quotes containing the word legislative:

    Freedom of men under government is to have a standing rule to live by, common to every one of that society, and made by the legislative power vested in it; a liberty to follow my own will in all things, when the rule prescribes not, and not to be subject to the inconstant, unknown, arbitrary will of another man.
    John Locke (1632–1704)

    Let reverence for the laws, be breathed by every American mother, to the lisping babe, that prattles on her lap—let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges;Mlet it be written in Primers, spelling books, and in Almanacs;Mlet it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    The dignity and stability of government in all its branches, the morals of the people, and every blessing of society, depend so much upon an upright and skilful administration of justice, that the judicial power ought to be distinct from both the legislative and executive, and independent upon both, that so it may be a check upon both, as both should be checks upon that.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
