The Head Of State In Romanian Constitutionalism – Between A Monarch And A President


  • Flaviu Zoltan MUICA

    (Master degree in International Law, Bucharest University, ROMANIA.)


The article aims at presenting the institution of the head of state in the Romanian constitutional context. The topic, though undoubtedly new in the Romanian specialized literature, has been the subject of intense and wide-ranging debates in the public media over the last 27 years. We can see a continuous increase among the supporters of the Royal House of Romania and those who want the form of government of the monarchy. Also, given that the President of Romania is the person with the most legitimacy in the Romanian political sphere, it would be opportune to bring into question possible constitutional improvements of the presidential institution, or why not, a change in the form of government Consequently, trying to bring an element of novelty as a whole the article is designed in such a way that the institution of the head of state is reviewed according to constitutional realities in its various historical stages.
