Prime Minister Viorica Dancila has said on Tuesday, that the assessment of cabinet ministers has been completed, but no names have been forwarded.
“We will discuss the assessment at the PSD’s Executive Committee. We are to decide together when the sitting will take place,” PM Dancila said.
She added: “I cannot mention names. The assessment has been done in regard to the governing programme. I will submit the assessment, but we will have a political vote, we need to see the opinions and the support for each of them in the Executive Committee. I can’t say these ones will go, the others will remain.”
The Premier said discussions will take place on each ministry. The date for the Executive Committee sitting hasn’t been set, but we should have it in one week, she added, ziare.com reports.
Last week, the Prime Minister said the assessment on ministers will be completed on Monday and the reshuffling is to be decided upon soon.
The Chamber of Deputies is to debate on Tuesday the simple motion against Justice Minister Tudorel Toader. Sources say that, as PSD leader Liviu Dragnea hasn’t reached an agreement with ALDE’s Calin Popescu Tariceanu to replace Toader, PSD might choose another way, to support the opposition in the attempt to oust the Justice Minister with the simple motion vote.
