Rovana Plumb, President of the Chapter of Social Democratic Women (OFSD), has stated that, even though she knows President Klaus Iohannis has entered the elections campaign, this does not justify the offensive language he used when talking about Premier Viorica Dancila.
“We call on the dignity of President Klaus Iohannis, to put a stop to the public pressure on Premier Viorica Dancila. We know he has entered the elections campaign, but this does not justify the levelling of threats, nor the offensive language, even more so since he addresses a lady!”, Rovana Plumb states in a press release remitted to MEDIAFAX.
President Iohannis, new attack on Dancila: Allow me to believe the lady didn’t understand very well what was discussed there
When asked about Premier Viorica Dancila’s announcement regarding the Sovereign Pontiff’s future visit to Romania, President Klaus Iohannis stated on Saturday, in Blaj, that he believes “the lady did not understand very well what was discussed there.”
“Allow me to believe the lady did not understand very well what was discussed there. I followed the developments, and, in the end, there was also the Vatican’s official communique regarding that meeting, and indeed it says they talked about the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the first half of 2019; my only explanation is that the lady understood that as being about the visit and not about the presidency. So, an inexplicable confusion,” Iohannis stated.
The Head of State added that in the relationship with the Vatican there are very clear rules and norms.
“I can tell you that I know, but, at this level, and even in the relationship with the Vatican, there are very, very clear rules and norms. When absolutely all details will be clarified, then both the Vatican and the Presidential Administration, not other visitors or people met by chance, will simultaneously make the announcement,” the President added.
