It is nice that King Michael is having all these honours heaped on him in the last years of his life, but is anything happening on the political front in terms of an actual restoration movement? Parliamentary debate? Proposals for constitutional referendum? The former king is not getting any younger.

The debate for the new Constitution will begin next year as wanted by the nowadays coalition of government.

Street Press speaks about the possibility of the restoration of Monarchy in Romania next year because of the large support from the National Liberal Party (PNL):

2013, année du comeback du roi de Roumanie ? | Vendredi 07 Décembre 2012 sur StreetPress.com

The country needs the urgent restoration of Monarchy and not only a sort of "compromise".

We will see the position of the coalition of government regarding the new Constitution.

Different important Romanian personalities signed an Appel to the coalition of Government to restore the Monarchy and to the Romanian Orthodox Church and the Romanian Greek-Catholic Church to recognize HM the King as the annointed Sovereign of the country:

1236 de persoane, printre care numeroase personalit

If restoring the monarchy requires a referendum, and it's unlikely that restoration would win a majority of popular support, according to that article, given King Michael's high popularity, why not do a "halfway" restoration?

Couldn't the Romanian legislature give King Michael the title of "King"? (Not that Afghanistan is a model, but its former king was given the official title of "Father of the Nation" or something.)

And couldn't Romania designate the Royal Family as "the Royal Family" and give it an official role in the promotion of the country and its well-being? (I believe that Montenegro did such a thing)

King Michael already has his palace back, and doesn't he get some kind of state payment? He seems to have a terrific life now, with all sorts of awards and gifts being bestowed on him, visits from Prince Charles and other royals, etc. I'd be pretty happy with that kind of life; it's certainly better than mine.

Now, what should be done to initiate the process of restoration in Romania?
Could you please explain it better, should the Government pass a referendum law or anything alike?

It's hard to tell. The Royal Family is pretty popular in the country and has an active role in Romania's day-to-day life. Among other things, the Royal Family often host foreign dignitaries upon the request of the Government. King Michael and Crown Princess Margrethe in particular appear to enjoy a very high regard, and the young Prince Nicholas is becoming popular too, especially since he moved to Romania.

This said, it's pretty difficult to predict how a referendum would go, or whether one will take place in near future; Romania - like most other countries in the region - has far more prevailing problems than changing its form of Government. If a referendum does take place, if the restoration is supported by all major political parties, and if it's heavily promotes (e.g. TV programmes on historical events, the role of the Monarch, etc), then it's quite possible.

Wouldn't it be amazing if a restoration happened during the life time of His Majesty The King!

In this moment nobody really knows which party will be in favour of Monarchy during the constitutional debate of this spring in the Parliament.


Andrei Chiliman, the liberal Mayor of the First Sector of Bucharest, said that the politicians should support the return to the Constitutional Monarchy in the constitutional debate:

Chiliman: Politicienii pot face ceva bun pentru ?ar? la revizuirea Constitu?iei, revenirea la monarhia constitu?ional? - Gandul

I'm afraid in this very moment no one from the political class really wants something like that! Recently, the leader of the Liberal Party, president of the Romanian Senate, declared frankly that he expects to win without any doubts the next presidential elections, in 2014; moreover, he stated that the president's functions should remain the same.
Practically, he turned around with 180 degrees with his position, untill now almost everybody from the new political coalition in power agreed that a parliamentary system would be far better for Romania, with a president with less power, eventually elected by the Parliament.
Unfortunately, with this kind of statements, the liberal leader showed that he in fact does not want a "healing", a correction of the actual system, he only wants to get elected as president, with the same attributes, the same powers as the actual president. Not a single word about monarchy.

The only solution for the problem could come from the civil society, there are many people who are extremely unsatisfied with the actual political class, a great part of them are not voting, at all, at any kind of elections, nearly 50% of them.
The ones who voted in december for the alliance now in power, who has a majority of 70% in the Parliament, are becoming angry because of the so-called "deal" between the actual prime-minister and the president still in charge, dismissed actually last summer through vote, by the people, but saved by some..."technicalities" and with help from his friends at the European Comission.
This act, this deal is more and more seen as one of treason, regarded the ones recently voted at the parliamentary elections in december. The people are beginning to feel betrayed by the ones they actually elected.
This situation should encourage the civil society to unite and to act, to realise that a real change can only be made with monarchy.
Only then, the political parties, would be more reasonable and think again, over this alternative.

It is really hard to belive the Restoration will really take place this year.

Even the politicians "officially royalists" seem to accept now a little change of the Constitution but with the republic. This year the chances of Monarchy do not look very well.
