President Iohannis on Constitution Day: Justice independence, public positions’ integrity – constitutional values not to be negotiated, restricted, eliminated

Promoting the rule of law and Justice independence, fighting against corruption, ensuring integrity in public positions and dignities are constitutional values that cannot be negotiated, President Klaus Iohannis stated on Friday in a message sent on the occasion of Romania’s Constitution Day.

“In any democracy, the Constitution is the highest expression of a nation’s values and ensures that bond of trust between citizens and the state’s institutions, essential for the strong, durable development of any society. Under the stronghold of the Fundamental Law, from whose adoption through referendum we celebrate today 26 years, Romanians prove more united than ever around some fundamental principles, for whose respect they actively campaign, without taking any step backwards. Promoting the rule of law and Justice independence, fighting against corruption, ensuring integrity in public positions and dignities are constitutional values that cannot be negotiated, restricted or eliminated,” President Iohannis communicates in his message.

He maintains that as Romania’s president, on the grounds of his attributions to watch over the observance of the Constitution, urges all the state’s institutions to take into account not just the letter but also the spirit of the Fundamental Law, “an indispensable condition for the good governance of the Romanian society.”
