President Klaus Iohannis has signed on Thursday afternoon the decrees recalling deputy PM and Development minister Paul Stanescu and Transports minister Lucian Sova. However, the head of state has not signed yet the documents appointing Lia Olguta Vasilescu for the Development portfolio and Mircea Draghici for the Transports.

The two ministries have been led by resigning ministers for a month. PM Dancila announced several days ago, when they met during the last CSAT meeting of 2018, that the head of state had informed her he would not accept the two proposals, Vasilescu for the Development ministry and Draghici for Transports.

On the last day of 2018, the ruling Social Democrat Party (PSD) has made another call to President Klaus Iohannis, asking him to sign the decrees to appoint the two new proposed ministers for the Development and Transports portfolios.

PSD argues that the situation of the two resigning ministers comes amid Romania’s taking over the Presidency of the EU Council.

“We ask the President to put aside the political vendettas and to unblock this situation that is deeply affecting Romania’s image at European level“, the Social Democrats say in a Facebook post on Monday.

Both the premier and the Social Democrat leaders accused President Iohannis of blocking the Government’s activity by his denial to green light the two ministers.
