The evaluation of the Grindeanu Government’s first three months in office will be carried out at Kiseleff (Social Democratic Party’s headquarters – editor’s note), not at the Victoria Palace. PSD President Liviu Dragnea announced he will present an analysis at the end of this week, in his capacity “as party president,” pointing out that talks about possible reshuffles will take place next summer at the earliest. Moreover, the PSD leader announced that being Premier is no longer his goal, regardless of the Constitutional Court ruling on the law that prevented him from taking that office.
“I hope that at the end of the week I’ll hold a press conference to present an evaluation of the Government’s activity, as party president, by contrasting it to the governance platform,” Dragnea stated for RTV private television broadcaster. He argued that, considering the “murky period” seen lately, the Government “did its job” and “the results of the first three months are good.”
Asked whether there is also the question of a Government reshuffle, Dragnea said such talks will take place in early summer, after a more thorough analysis is carried out within the Government in May, ‘Gandul’ daily writes.
“We’ll see next summer, next autumn, whether there will be changes or not, whether they will be carried out next year or not. It’s premature to talk now. Most ministers are doing their job,” Dragnea pointed out.
Ahead of the Constitutional Court’s ruling on the law that prevented him from being Premier, the PSD President claims that this discussion is now “history,” the PM’s office no longer being his goal.
“What happened is history. (…) Being Prime Minister is no longer my objective. My objective is to manage, as far as I can, the leadership of the Lower Chamber, and the leadership of Parliament alongside Calin Popescu Tariceanu, and to support the Government’s actions with all my power, regardless of what the CCR says next week,” Dragnea said.
