Premier Victor Ponta appointed Bogdan Stanoevici Secretary of State with the Ministry of Culture, under a decision published in the Official Journal on Friday evening.
“As of the coming into force of the present decision, Mr. Bogdan Dragos Aureliu Marian Stanoevici is being appointed as Secretary of State with the Ministry of Culture,” reads the cited document quoted by Agerpres.
Bogdan Stanoevici served between March 5 and December 13, 2014 as Minister-delegate for Romanians Everywhere in the Ponta 3 Cabinet.
The National Liberal Party’s (PNL) Diaspora organisation disapproves of this appointment and asks for the Government’s urgent resignation.
“We want to remind the public opinion that Stanoevici is among the main to blame for the failure of the organisation of polling stations abroad, which is also the reason why he was sacked about a month ago. He has also constantly displayed an arrogant attitude towards the Romanians from the diaspora who wanted to cast ballots,” reads a PNL Diaspora release sent to AGERPRES this Saturday.
PNL Diaspora also considers “unacceptable the fact that just a few weeks after a minister is removed from office on grounds of incompetence and misconduct in office, he is appointed to another public position as if nothing happened.”
“A few days ago, Premier Ponta was calling on the Romanians to give him the necessary respite to understand where he did wrong and which were the causes of the huge backlash vote he received on November 16,” the release also says.
PNL Diaspora concludes that “by this move Victor Ponta proves everyone that he is incapable of self-criticism and that he will never be able to learn anything from his own mistakes.”
