At the referendum 87% were against Basescu but it is not clear if there was 50% of the population at the referendum. The Constitution Court is studying right now the issue.

When King Michael was on the throne in the 1940s, what exactly did he do with his time?

I am reading Mihail Sebastian's journal of his life in Romania in the 1930s and 1940s, and while King Carol and plenty of political leaders are mentioned throughout the book, King Michael's name doesn't appear at all.

In a way that's good since so many terrible things happened then, and King Michael clearly had nothing to do with them, but how much power did he have, if any? And why didn't he refuse to sign Antonescu's terrible laws, like he refused to sign the Communists' terrible laws after 1945?

The romanian society is now more divided than ever, in danger of social collisions if the suspended president should return to the Cotroceni Palace. The people literally hate him. There is a monarchist movement, which is trying to unite all the other monarchist organisations and to act clearly towards the restoration; one of the leaders (I would say the most important of them, the heart of the monarchists) is a television producer, there is a tv show at the national television called "The king's Hour" every Saturday in which she is deeply involved.
The monarchists on facebook are more united than ever, willing to gather in several cities to demonstrate for monarchy.
Romania needs the monarchy now more than ever...otherwise I really don't know what will become of this country.

The presence in Romania of HRH Prince Nicolae helps a lot the royalist cause. He is seen with much simpathy by the people.

The last week visits of the Royal Family in different cities show a great popularity and a big interest of the people for the Monarchy. The government announcred a new subject in the Highschools: The Story of the Monarchy. The chances of the Restoration are really increasing.

At their last visit, this Monday at Alba-Iulia, the city where king Ferdinand and queen Mary were crowned in 1922, the Royal Family used the old royal train, which was never used before, since 1948. I think this also means something.
Anyway, it's a huge difference between the way the royals are seen nowadays and the way they were seen back in the 90's for instance. Since then, a lot of people got new information about monarchy, about how things go in the other european monarchies, not to speak about those romanians who actually live and work abroad, who opened up their vision, ideas a lot.
Prince Radu said in an interview recently that the problem is not common people, mostly decent, but the so-called "elites", the ones who "rule" and decide for others, meaning not only political class, also many intelectuals, parts of the civil-society, who are still quiet, just for some advantages of their own.

Any will from the major political parties has really vanished recently when PNL and its president, Crin Antonescu, showed their true colours.

The only other parties that is very much pro-monarchy is the Christian-Democratic National Peasants' Party. But the party has been weakened by splitting into two factions: one supporting the centre-left USL and the other supporting the centre-right ADR. Both factions though openly campaign for the restoration of the monarchy. However, their infighting has detered people from voting for any of the two factions.

The ex-premier Calin Popescu Tariceanu supports the restoration of Monarchy in 2013:

Very interesting.
If I am not mistaken, the former Prime Minster is the highest-ranking Romanian official to openly support a restoration.

Cory, did I understand the former Prime Minister's proposal right? Does he suggest to have a referendum with two simple questions - whether the country should remain a republic or a constitutional monarchy? And that he personally supports monarchical form of government?

The ex premier did not speak about a referendum but about the debate about the Constitution that will surely take place in 2013.

A debate within the Parliament? And if so, and assuming most MPs opt for one or the other form of government, shouldn't there be a referendum as well?

It is impossible to change the Constitution without a referendum but first of all it is compulsory to have a decision of the Parliament with a large majority.

You're very welcome!It is however difficult to have a clear and large royalist majority in the Parliament after the december general elections.

If such a debate should take place, in the future Parliament, and if a clear majority won't be able to form itself, either for monarchy, or against it, then the correct thing to do would be to organize a national referendum, and let the people decide this issue.
Anyway, this should have been done normally in 1991, along with the new Constitution...
But who knows...? Perhaps it's better this way, better later than never; the chances in favour of the monarchy may be much stronger now.
