Dragos Tudorache hands over ministry to new minister: I’m going back to my family, I’ll leave for Brussels today

Former Interior Minister Dragos Tudorache met new Interior Minister Carmen Dan on Thursday morning and put her up to date with current issues within the Interior Ministry (MAI). Tudorache said he will return to his office within the European Commission, in Brussels, a city in which he lives with his family.

“The meeting lasted almost an hour. We had a discussion on all the important files currently in work, on all the sensitive issues, including the preparations for the upcoming days, which will be more difficult from the standpoint of weather conditions. From what I understand, a winter crisis cell will be set up in the afternoon in order for the ministry to make sure the response will be the proper one,” Dragos Tudorache pointed out when leaving the MAI headquarters.

Asked whether he has any regrets in what concerns his activity within the Ciolos Government, Tudorache answered: “Regrets? No. I generally don’t have regrets. I’m pleased with this period, with the fact that we managed to prove unchallengeable elections can be organised in this country, and this is a very important thing. There were also some difficult moments, but I believe the ministry has managed to overcome them.”

The former minister was expected to leave the country on Thursday and to take over the office he previously held within the European Commission. “I’m going back to my family, to my office within the European Commission. I’m already leaving for Brussels today,” Tudorache added, News.ro informs.
