Darius Valcov, the Premier’s adviser on economic issues, resigned on Monday following a discussion with Premier Viorica Dancila. The Head of the Executive accepted his resignation.
His decision comes against the backdrop in which Viorica Dancila announced last Tuesday that she will dismiss Anca Alexandrescu, who is close to Liviu Dragnea, from the office of honorary adviser and from the PSD’s public relations department, and stated that a decision regarding Darius Valcov, also close to Dragnea, would follow.
The Premier’s decision to dismiss honorary adviser Anca Alexandrescu, considered to be close to Liviu Dragnea, was published last Thursday in the Official Journal.
Former mayor of Slatina and former Finance Minister in the Ponta Government, Darius Valcov is considered the “brain” behind the important legislative measures taken by the PSD Government, including GEO no.114 on fiscal matters and the salary law.
However, Valcov’s stint as minister was short-lived, since several corruption and bribery dossiers handled by the DNA appeared.
Even though he did not spend a lot of time in office as Finance Minister, he gave a fairly good impression as minister, combining his administrative experience with the courage of adopting fiscal changes.
