It may be a clear sign to the politicians, but it does not seem to be a huge incentive for them to take any kind of action.

If the monarchy is going to be restored, the Romanian people are going to have to initiate the process themselves, and they had better do so as swiftly as possible.

Or a clear sign to the current leadership that they need to discredit the former king and his supporters, and also do some face saving cosmetic changes to try and appease the opposition and the people.

Basescu has been pursuing that route for quite some time, and it certainly has not been working well for him.

The Royal Family has the stronest popular support in the last 20 years.

Hopefully with the spring there will be much more people out in the streets, protesting against this political regime and its miserable tricks, like that with the change of the prime-minister, putting an ex young communist and chief of the SIE (one of the 7 special, or secret services that we, romanians "proudly" have) in charge.
For me, as a monarchist, it's a great news that people are more and more in favour of the monarchy, but there is still a long way to go, the civil society must react and debate the problem, in the media, television and so on. There has already been such a debate programmed to take place on wednesday this week, but unfortunately it has been postponed.
I think things must go from the base, from the bottom of the society up to the ones who can take decisions, the politicians. We have to force them to restore the monarchy, by organising a national referendum and then by adopting a new constitution.
The politicians alone, by their initiative, will never agree for something that would limit thier influence and source of power.

I don't know yet when it will eventually take place, I hope it will happen soon. One of the organisers of the event is Mrs. Aurora Martin, she only said to me that it was postponed and it will be anounced the date of this debate later. The article of presentation for the event was deleted from this site: EUROLINK - House of Europe / Fundatia EUROLINK - Casa Europei, until the new date shall be anounced. On facebook there's also information about the restoration of the monarchy, there are several groups.

The newest poll shows 42% of the Romanians in favour of HM King Mihai I:

I'm still not understand the methodology of these polls. 42% in favor of King Michael- does that mean that 58% are either against him or are neutral?

I think the important thing to take from these polls is the rapidly increasing support for the King. It wasn't that long ago when the figure was in the 20s

It would be interesting to know the exact question that was asked? How many people polled? Age range of those polled? Was it a national poll or more local?

Every Monday people gather in Timisoara to show their support for Monarchy.
In Bucharest there is everyday a royalist gruop who gather in the University Square.

I was wondering, the minority of die-hard Monarchists notwithstanding, do ordinary people of Romania support the possibility of restoration? Or is it just another irrelevant topic no one seriously thinks about?

If the polls speak about 42 % of the population supporting the King things are very clear.

Not necessarily. I support the general idea of Monarchy as well; however, if tomorrow there was an actual referendum on restoration in my country, I would have probably voted against.

The royalists always vote for the abolition of the republics not otherwise.
