It is expected that the 43-year-old, a mathematician who in the past served as deputy mayor of Timisoara, will be elected in parliament next week, Reuters has reported.

The PSD and their coalition partner ALDE have 250 seats in the country's 465-seat parliament.

The PSD's first pick, Sevil Shhaideh, was rejected by President Klaus Iohannis.
