Romanian lawmakers will hold a debate and vote on the motion of no confidence filed by the Romanian opposition on Wednesday, an official has said.
The decision has been taken after a reading of the motion at a plenary of Parliament's both chambers, according to state-run Agerpres agency.
The vote is scheduled for 12:00 local time (EET).
Senate chair Calin Popescu-Tariceanu has meanwhile said President Klaus Iohannis will deliver an address to Parliament on Tuesday, 12:00.
His speech will be related to the controversial changes to criminal law, introduced through a decree that was later postponed, sparking massive protests across Romania.
Officials now plan on submitting the same amendments, decriminalizing abuse of office cases worth less than EUR 44 000, as a bill to Parliament.
Iohannis has already spoken out against the changes.
