Asked about the poor representation of women in the future Cabinet, the Liberal chairman Ludovic Orban said that “these were the proposal made by the three parties in the new ruling coalition”.
“These are the proposals advanced by the parties in the coalition (…) We respect these decisions”, Orban said.
Also questioned on the nomination of Sorin Campeanu as Education minister despite controversies that the latter defended ex-PM Victor Ponta in his plagiarized PhD thesis scandal, Orban replied that Campeanu’s career as a whole must be taken into account, and that his academic career recommends him for this position.
“We must analyse his entire career. He is the guarantee of implementing the Educated Romania programme. We trust his capacity to enforce this programme“, Orban commented.
Sorin Campeanu was Education minister before in the fourth Ponta Cabinet and interim PM for 12 days in November 2015 after the Ponta’s resignation following the Colective fire.
Campeanu was founding member of Pro Romania, but resigned and joined PNL early this year, as he was one of the left-wing MPs who voted the censure motion against Viorica Dancila Gov’t, which enabled Liberals to come to power. Campeanu’s name is also related to several scandals regarding false diplomas and plagiarized PhD theses, such as Oprea, Ponta and Baranga cases.
