Romanian deputies vote one by one in special room to support new government

The emergency parliamentary session to vote on the new government took place in a disinfected room. MPs wore surgical masks and disposable gloves and entered one by one to cast their votes. The vote to support Ludovic Orban's government was carried overwhelmingly, supported by most of the opposition, despite the same government having lost a vote of confidence last month.

The new PM and most of his cabinet did not attend the parliamentary vote, because they are in self-quarantine, after a senator of their party, the National Liberal Party, was found to be infected with coronavirus.
