Romania's president has refused to appoint an economist as the country's first female Muslim prime minister. "Therefore, I call on the coalition PSD - ALDE to make another proposal", Iohannis said in a brief statement posted on the website of the president's office.
Romania's president sparked fresh political turmoil Tuesday after rejecting a proposal by the election-winning leftist party to name the European Union country's first female and first Muslim prime minister. The delay came after the PSD nominated Shhaideh following the party's victory on December 11 in Romania's general elections. "I took into consideration forming a commission to analyze whether the president's gesture is constitutional", Dragnea said.
President Klaus Iohannis made clear that he used the Christmas holiday to decide whether to nominate the 52-year-old Muslim Sevil Shhaideh to the post of prime minister.
Shhaideh has also been criticised by some observers for lacking sufficient political experience, only briefly serving as regional development minister in 2015 for five months.
"But if we conclude after a thorough analysis to suspend the President, I will not hesitate".
Iohannis gave no precise reason for refusing Shhaideh's candidacy: "I weighed with care the arguments for and against and I decided not to accept this proposal", he said, according to Politico.

He said Iohannis "wants to start a political crisis".
Non-profit investigative journalism group the Rise Project claimed he has several times expressed his support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
It led to suggestions the party leader was attempting to appoint a prime minister he could easily control.
Mr Dragnea was forced to withdraw his bid to become prime minister because of his conviction for election fraud, for which he received a two-year suspended jail sentence.
