Premier Victor Ponta stated on Saturday in Sibiu that he will ask for a “rigorous” audit at Romgaz and Transgaz, in order to see how the money were used, stating that the days of state-owned companies acting as “piggybanks for a party” are over, Mediafax informs. “In what concerns the USL Government, there is not question about it. Transgaz and Romgaz will remain where they are, in Medias, but there will be a fundamental change. Enough with appointments made on the basis of political considerations and with businesses for the party,” Ponta said. In what concerns the sale of minority shares packages, Ponta stated that he does not want to channel the resulting money to a reserve fund as the previous government planned. “I believe the resulting money should remain within the companies in view of technological upgrading and modernization,” Victor Ponta stated.
