High Court to Decide on Appeal by United Right Alliance Against Electoral Bureau's Rejection: The High Court of Cassation and Justice is set to deliberate on an appeal submitted by the United Right Alliance against the Central Electoral Bureau's decision to reject its founding protocol. The Bureau's rejection came following a request from the PSD, citing discrepancies in the representation of the Popular Movement Party (PMP). The alliance, comprising USR, PMP, and Right Force, faced rejection due to the protocol being signed by individuals not listed as PMP's president in the Register of Political Parties. USR's president, Cătălin Drulă, condemned the decision as antidemocratic, emphasizing the importance of maintaining opposition representation on the electoral ballot. The High Court's ruling is anticipated to influence the trajectory of democratic processes in Romania.
