6 or 7 ministers might be reshuffled
The Social Democrats convened for an informal meeting between PM Viorica Dancila and local party leaders in Neptun seaside resort this weekend might be decided on reshuffling certain ministers. Among them there might be Transport minister Razvan Cuc, Tourism minister Bogdan Trif, but also deputy PM and Development minister Daniel Suciu, Interior minister Carmen Dan and Agriculture minister Petre Daea, PSD sources told local media.
The reshuffle is to be conducted after the extraordinary congress of June 29.
The same sources revealed that while some PSD members want to take the Government restructuring path, with less ministries, PM Dancila, also interim PSD leader, would endorse a reshuffle.
Dăncilă Cabinet has 25 ministries at present and a position of deputy PM with no portfolio, currently taken by Viorel Stefan. However, as Stefan is going to the European Court of Accounts as of July, his position becomes vacant, and PSD must also think of a successor.
As for the presidential election this autumn, the ruling party has three rumoured potential candidates so far: Finance Minister Eugen Teodorovici, Education Minister Ecaterina Andronescu and senator Şerban Nicolae.
