First Royal Address to the Romanian Parliament in 64 Years

On the occasion of his 90th birthday King Michael I of Romania addressed the Romanian Parliament for the first time in 64 years. In his address King Michael called on the Romanian MPs to restore faith in democracy and the dignity of the Romanian nation on the world scene, indirectly condemning post-Communist Romanian governments by calling on the country's leadership to "break for good with the bad habits of the past."

Romanian President Traian Basescu refused to attend the special joint session of Parliament, condemning King Michael, who was forced to abdicate by the Communist regime in 1947, "Russia's servant." More here.
