The actual leader of the romanian Senate and leader of the Liberal Party has expressed today his strong belief towards monarchy; he considers this form of government the most suited for a country like Romania.

That's what they said last year around King Mihai's birthday and nothing changed when they came to power this year, especially when the "big monarchist" Antonescu was president. They didn't even try to bring up the discussion. For them, the personal vendetta against Basescu was more important. All they are doing now is blowing hot air for elections since they know many Romanians respect the King and there are many monarchists' votes to be one. I dislike how PNL is using the monarchy to bring them votes.

I would not place my bet for now on anything concrete to happen in 2013.

Wonderful video made by the National Romanian Television (TVR) at the 91st Anniversary of HM the King:

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):

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.

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

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?

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:

I'd like to know if the referendum to restore the monarchy will be aproved. Does it have support?

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!
