Romania’s designated prime minister announces completion of cabinet lineup

Bucharest: Romania’s nominated Prime Minister Dacine Ciolos has announced that he has presented his government’s program to parliament along with a list of his minority cabinet.

Siolos, 52, told a news conference that his government would focus on clear current priorities, Xinhua news agency reported. We need solutions and urgent measures for the health crisis, and at the same time to prepare for the energy crisis, which could cause huge damage to people this winter.

Seolos stressed that we are ready to take responsibility for those tough measures.

I hope the hearing and the vote (in parliament) can be held as soon as possible, if this government gets the permission of the parliament then this week we are ready to act as soon as possible.

Parliament will give a vote of confidence to the new government in a few days.

The proposed new cabinet would be composed entirely of members from the USR, which has just 80 seats in its 465-member parliament.

Seolos lacks the support of the two other major parties (National Liberal Party, PNL, and Social Democratic Party, PSD) and other smaller opposition groups.

Local analysts believe that Seolos is unlikely to get the support of more than the required 50 percent of the votes in parliament.

Marcel Ciolacu, leader of the largest party in parliament, the PSD, called the program proposed by Ciolos a draft with zero probability.

Romania’s coalition government, led by PNL president Florin Situ, fell in a censure motion launched by the PSD on 5 October when the USR announced its withdrawal from cabinet.
