After two weeks of statements by the two parties, the Romanian President delivered a televised address on Saturday evening, in which he summoned Romania's Parliament in an extraordinary session for Wednesday, January 21st. He said that the dispute within the government coalition was affecting the progress of the reform and had a negative impact on the economy. The President of Romania asked the leaders of the political parties to put an end to the conflict and to place the national interest above anything else. President Constantinescu also asked Prime Minister Victor Ciorbea to commit the Government's responsability in Parliament with regard to the major draft laws of the reform.

At a press conference in Victoria Palace, the Trade and Industry Minister, Mircea Ciumara, detailed these decisions: "The first decision is referring to the coal price.
