Ludovic Orban renominated as Romanian Prime Minister

Romanian lawmakers on Saturday voted overwhelmingly to approve Prime Minister Ludovic Orban's new government, the same one ousted last month as the result of losing a no-confidence vote.

Orban and his Cabinet of ministers, who remained in a caretaker role after losing a no-confidence vote on February, have been in isolation since Friday after a government party lawmaker they frequently met with was confirmed to be infected with the new coronavirus.

Before his ouster last month due to disputed changes he sought to the election law, Orban had been in power since November, when his government replaced a Social Democratic government beset by corruption scandals.
