Romanians Demand Resignation of the Government

About 500,000 demonstrators rallied across Romania on February 5, demanding the resignation of the government, BBC reports.

The left-wing government earlier scrapped the bill, which would have shielded many politicians from prosecution for corruption.

But protesters remain dissatisfied about a revised version of the bill which will now be put to parliament.

Romanian Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu insists he won’t resign. ”I will not resign,” Grindeanu told broadcaster Antena3 on Sunday.
