Iohannis: Cities that want to become regional seats currently have equal chances

PNL First Vice President Klaus Iohannis claims that the cities that expressed their desire to become regional seats currently have equal chances since “there is no manual of competition or competency,” however they should properly elaborate and present their profile, Mediafax informs. Thus, Iohannis stated on Saturday during a press conference in Alba Iulia that the city has the same chances as Sibiu, Brasov or Targu-Mures to become the seat of the Central Region. Asked what will happen with the regional institutions in case Alba Iulia, a city in which many people work in institutions of this kind, will not be the regional seat, Iohannis answered that “where there are centres of competence they have to be kept.” In what concerns the fact that Laura Kodruta Kovesi was nominated at the helm of the National Anticorruption Office (DNA), the PNL First Vice President added that he does not know her, adding that he personally is not bothered by any appointment “provided it is done on the basis of professional, transparent and easy to trace criteria.” Referring to the Ponta – Basescu cohabitation pact, Iohannis claimed that the Liberals “do not view this pact with a friendly eye,” however they are determined to transform the USL government “into a success,” the Union being created precisely in order to “finish what was dubbed as the Basescu regime.” On the other hand, Deputy Prime Minister Liviu Dragnea stated on Friday during a press conference in Bistrita that no extra tax “will be invented” to finance the regions the counties will be part of, pointing out that the regions’ fiscal system is not yet defined, this being “the most delicate issue.”
