Forthcoming policy developments 

After debates in 2016 on several amendments of the Youth Law, the Ministry of Youth and Sports drafted and proposed a new Youth Law, establishing consultative youth councils at the level of the counties and municipalities and a national advisory youth council, aiming at an effective implementation of the youth policy. The bill has been approved by the Government and the first chamber of the Parliament (the Senate) and it is currently under the debate of the the Chamber of Deputies since 2018.


The rules on citizens participation to decision making are one of the subjects of the forthcoming reform of the administrative procedure, through an administrative procedure code supported by an European funded project to be completed in 2022.


Ongoing debates 

Debates on electronic and internet voting are increasingly salient in Romania in 2022, however, there are no official initiatives in this respect.
