Liberals accuse cabinet of ‘preferential’ hirings

The National Liberal Party (PNL) in a press release yesterday accused the Emil Boc government of “showing contempt to the public” by allowing part of ministries and subordinated agencies to hire staff despite the austerity plan that provides massive public sector layoffs. The release, carried by Mediafax news agency, said that “while the government’s public discourse tackles in a populist and propaganda-like manner the reduction of the state apparatus, of budget expenses and a significant part of the population lives on the brink of poverty, local and central public administration institutions (…) have found resources to hire new staff.” The PNL insists that these hirings are preferential and discretionary, underlining that the 700 positions to be filled are mostly in administrations run by Democrat Liberals. “PNL demands PM Boc to publicly explain why the public sector is hiring, the resources to cover these jobs and how come the legislation passed by his own cabinet has become optional, being violated based on the interests of the current rule,” the release reads.
