Boc replaces AVAS, DAE leadership

Premier Emil Boc has decided on Friday that the Authority for State Assets Resolution (AVAS) will be led by Aurelian Popa, a PDL member, with the Head of Government already signing the decision to appoint him in that office, Mediafax informs.

Aurelian Popa was a PDL-backed Prefect of Dambovita County until March 2008 when he was appointed by Prime Minister Tariceanu as governmental inspector. Popa confirmed his appointment in the new office.

Daniel Florea, another PDL member, was appointed Vice-President of AVAS. Daniel Florea is the former President of the Court of Arbitration for Football and was involved in the decisions taken in the ‘Cash bag’ case.

Ionela-Bruchental Pop, Vice President of PDL’s Bihor County branch, was also appointed Vice-President of AVAS. Before this appointment she held the office of general deputy commissioner of the National Environment Guard.

One week ago Prime Minister Emil Boc sacked the entire leadership of AVAS and decided that Mircea Ioan Pavelescu, Vice President of AVAS and of PDL, will be the body’s interim President.

Also on Friday, Bogdan Manoiu, Presidential state advisor within the Foreign Relations Department, was appointed head of the Department of European Affairs (DAE) with the rank of Minister. Manoiu thus replaces Social-Democrat Vasile Puscas after the latter resigned. The decision to appoint him in that office was taken by Premier Emil Boc.

Vasile Puscas stepped down from the leadership of DAE after PSD left the government.

Bogdan Manoiu, born in Hague (Netherlands), has a diplomatic rank and has worked as state advisor within the Presidential Administration’s Foreign Relations Department since February 2009. The Prime Minister also decided that Laura Elena Pop, undersecretary within the DAE, will be replaced by Alexandru Nazare, the latter being a Democrat-Liberal MEP.
