Constitutional Monarchy in Romania
In Romania, an important landmark for the constitutional monarchy is King Ferdinand I, the Integrator, who adopted the Constitution in 1923 - considered to be the most democratic fundamental European law of those times.
The first constitutional monarch was King Carol I, who laid the foundations of the constitutional political system, contributed to the rapid modernization of the Romanian state and to the development of Romanian society.
King Ferdinand achieved the Great Union on December 1, 1918 and updated the Constitution of 1866 by adopting the fundamental law in 1923.
The Constitution adopted in 1866 during King Carol I and the Constitution adopted in 1923 during the Sovereign of the Union had an important role in regulating the role of mediator of the monarch on the political scene - from a normative, legislative and administrative point of view .
The monarch who returned to the Constitutional Monarchy, after a break in which King Carol II ruled under the regime known as the "Carlist dictatorship", was King Mihai I. On August 31, 1944 he returned to the 1923 Constitution.
The monarch acts as a non-party political head of state under the constitution. Being above the political parties and being independent of them, the role of the monarch is to arbitrate, to “moderate” equidistantly, to establish a balance between the political parties competing on the political scene. Thus, the monarch is a symbol of the unity of the people, and the constitutional monarchy brings sustainable development, political and economic stability.
