President Klaus Iohannis signed on Friday the decree appointing Ecaterina Andronescu as Minister of Education, i a press release issued by the Presidential Administration informs.
On Tuesday Ecaterina Andronescu was unanimously nominated by the PSD (Social Democratic Party) leaders for the office of Minister of Education.
On the same day President Klaus Iohannis was saying that analysing the proposal for Education “will take a little longer, maybe a whole little longer.” The president mentioned that at an event that took place at the Politehnica University, Ecaterina Andronescu told him she was not interested in this position.
“Without being asked, Mrs Andronescu told me though that she wouldn’t go to the ministry, that things are not going well and so on and so forth. (…) Much to my surprise I find out she has been nominated. It will take a while before I figure out whether it is her wish or only the party’s desire or whether there will be a reshuffle piece by piece,” Iohannis explained.
Ecaterina Andronescy replaces Valentin Popa who resigned end-September from the position of Education Minister.
