ALDE co-chair Constantin: All our state secretaries tender resignation
The co-chairman of Romania’s Alliance of Liberals and Democrats (ALDE) Daniel Constantin announced on Monday that all the state secretaries the party had in the previous government have resigned.
“As I was saying last week, all the state secretaries from the previous government, in a move meant to strengthen ALDE’s status of the only opposition party functioning with a substantial group in Parliament, have tendered resignations. There were two or three cases of party fellows who were requested by the ministers to stay, as they were the only ones who knew how things should move forward. They will also tender resignation, if they haven’t done it already. The next step is for Prime Minister Dacian Ciolos to sign and make public such resignations”, Constantin told a news conference.
He explained that the former ALDE state secretaries hold leading positions in the party departments and will monitor the current governing programme.
“This way, we do nothing else but strengthen the departments that functioned in the party. All the party fellows hold leading positions and we will carefully monitor the governing programme in the period ahead. We wait to see what are the completions the Government will make by December 15, so as to try to make sure that the measures we took in the previous governing and which are absolutely necessary for the business climate are maintained. We will draw attention any time a mistake is made and when [the new Government] tries to promote a measure which is not in the interest of the policy that we promote”, the ALDE co-chair stressed, according to Agerpres.
