President Klaus Iohannis stated that he has complaints concerning the activity of some members of the Ciolos Government, but there can be no talk of “a circus between Palaces.”
In this context, the Head of State named Culture Minister Vlad Alexandrescu, who resigned as a result of the scandal at the National Opera of Bucharest.
“I have such complaints, I discuss them with Prime Minister Ciolos and, as can be seen, they are resolved. There are no complaints that would lead to some circus between Palaces or to arguments between the President and the Prime Minister. We are working together and we solve the problems,” Klaus Iohannis said.
The Head of State made these statements soon after Cristian Ghinea, the new European Funds Minister, was sworn in at the Presidential Palace.
Cristian Ghinea sworn in as minister of European funds
Cristian Ghinea has been sworn in as minister of European funds on Wednesday, in a ceremony at the Cotroceni Palace, seat of the Presidential Administration.
The event was attended by President Klaus Iohannis, by Prime Minister Dacian Ciolos and several ministers, and by Chamber of Deputies Speaker Valeriu Zgonea.
Ghinea, formerly chief of the prime minister’s chancellery, had been nominated on Tuesday to replace Aura Raducu, who resigned on Monday upon Ciolos’s request.
