Over the last few months, there were rumours circulating on the internet that Romania would probably withdraw from the upcoming edition of Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Malmö, Sweden.
However, an emergency ordinance document from the Romanian government has been leaked, citing the approval of the annual budget that the romanian broadcaster tvr needs to cover their expenses. The document states the following:
“Through the annual budgetary law, the funds required by the romanian society of radiotelevision needed for various aquisitions of equipment necessary for broadcasting, materials needed for the development of broadcasting activities, security and for payment of fees to international governmental organisations, including the financial obligations to the european broadcasting union (contributions, taxes, dues, subscriptions, licenses for broadcasting rights of cultural, entertainment, news and sports related events) are approved“.
This practically could mean that the goverment of Romania has already allocated a budget for TVR to pay the participation fee to EBU and consequently pave the path for Romania towards their participation in next years contest!
This year, Romania was represented by Theodor Andrei with “D. G. T” who came last in the 2nd Semi-Final.
