Future presidential adviser on foreign policy: Lazar Comanescu or Leonard Orban?

From the list of the future presidential advisers to President-elect Klaus Iohannis, published by the press a few days ago, there were still missing nominations for several positions, one of them being the holder of the foreign policy adviser position.

Sources from the National liberal Party (PNL) told Mediafax that the names being circulated so far for this very important position in the future Klaus Iohannis’ Chancellery  are Lazar Comanescu, Romania’s current Ambassador to Germany, and Leonard Orban, former European Commissioner for Multilingualism. Comanescu , who has served as Ambassador to Berlin from May 2009 to present,  was Minister of Foreign Affairs  in 2008 ,for several months , in the government led by  Calin Popescu-Tariceanu. Leonard Orban, is an independent technocrat who had the portfolio of  European Commissioner for Multilingualism in the Barroso Commission from January 2007 to February 2010.

According to the same sources, Iohannis would also consider to keep state counselors and presidential advisers from the current staff of Basescu’s  Presidential Administration in his new Presidential team.
