606

President Klaus Iohannis has signed on Friday the decrees appointing Ana Birchall as Justice Minister, Roxana Minzatu as European Funds Minister and Natalia Intotero as Minister for Romanians Abroad, the Presidential Administration informs.

The head of state has also sent a letter to Prime Minister Viorica Dancila explaining the refusal to appoint Titus Corlatean in the cabinet.

Regarding Corlatean, the letter reads that “analyzing the meeting of legal conditions and the criteria for the candidate to meet the conditions for the position, according to the Constitutional Court jurisprudence, I believe that the proposed person does not enjoy an intact reputation, which is an essential demand for acting as Vice-Premier and for managing the complex field of implementing Romania’s strategic partnerships, because during his term as foreign minister he faultily managed activities in his field, with the consequence of preventing the right to vote of the Romanians abroad. Consequently, I have decided to decline the appointment of Mr. Titus Corlatean in the position of Vice-Premier for implementing Romania’s strategic partnerships,” the letter reads.
