On Wednesday, President Klaus Iohannis once again criticised the PSD Government, pointing out that only some of the measures for the safety of citizens have been considered and that the Social Democrats are preoccupied with moving bosses “from one institution to another, without them being censured.”
The Head of State said that, several weeks ago, the terrible tragedy in Caracal showed how numerous and profound the dysfunctionalities are within some state institutions.
“Incompetence, the lack of clear procedures, corruption, indifference, all of these have led to a terrible denouement: the state’s inability to save the lives of its own citizens. I asked the Government to adopt, by the end of August, a series of measures so that in cases such as the one in Caracal there would no longer be murderous delays in the action of state organs. I also pointed out to the Government, during the CSAT meeting on July 30, the essential measures that should be taken with priority. However, the PSD, preoccupied with solving their internal crises, continue to ignore the solving of the urgencies that are important for citizens and that have a direct impact on their day-to-day lives and safety. I have seen only a few point-by-point measures, taken in the heat of the moment, under public pressure, and the preoccupation with moving bosses from one institution to another, without censuring them for their incompetence,” Klaus Iohannis stated at the Cotroceni Palace.
The Head of State pointed out that the PSD are specialists when it comes to procrastinating, “hoping that people would forget on whose shoulders the responsibility stands in fact.”
“These days we are seeing only a deaf political fight to stay in power at any cost. Everything I was warning about early this year as regards the budget has unfortunately been confirmed. Major investments are not being made, hospitals and highways are not being built. The PSD are not preoccupied with all these things, things that are of utmost interest for the people, they are only interested in securing their power, putting offices up for grabs. This is how a failed Government looks like,” Iohannis added.
