att. Magdalena Popeanga
The citizenship is the capacity of the private person that evokes the permanent political, social, economical and juridical relationships between that private person and the state.
The Romanian citizenship proves that the private person belongs to the Romanian state and gives to that private person the possibility of being the titular of all the rights and the duties stipulated of the Constitution and the Romanian laws.
Principles of citizenship:
1. Only the Romanian citizens are the owners of all rights and duties stipulated of Constitution and laws.
Here we can talk about:
a) the right of elect and to be elected

And so on...

The citizenship law establishes 3 ways of granting the citizenship:

The child under 18 adopted by Romanian parents or one Romanian parent will get Romanian citizenship.

b) He/she proves devotion to the Romanian state and the Romanian people.
c) He/she is over 18 yrs.
d) He/she has assured the means of existence.
e) He/she is known with a good conduct and wasnít convicted in Romania or abroad for an offence which makes him/her unworthy of being Romanian citizen.
