How the hell does something like this happen? There’s barely any Moslems in Romania yet the nation may soon be led by a female Moslem. This is pure madness and especially surprising since this is happening in an Eastern European nation.
Little-known former regional development minister Sevil Shhaideh has been proposed as Romania’s first woman prime minister, the Social Democratic Party (PSD) says.
If, as expected, her appointment is approved by President Klaus Iohannis and by parliament, the 52-year-old will also become the first Muslim to head the Romanian government. Around 0.3 per cent of the population in Romania is Muslim.
The Social Democrats won parliamentary elections on December 11 but narrowly missed an outright majority, meaning they will form a coalition with allies such as the small liberal party ALDE.
