President Klaus Iohannis emphasized, on Saturday, the necessity for the current government crisis to be overcome, pointing out that governing must continue as there is no reason for Prime Minister Florin Citu to resign or be dismissed.
"It's imperative we overcome the current crisis as soon as possible. This government must continue, as there is no real reason for the Prime Minister to be dismissed or resign, moreover as the Prime Minister and Liberal Ministers are attacked from all sides, the entirety of the PNL [National Liberal Party] should have proven solidarity and supported them with all their forces," said Iohannis, at the PNL Congress.
He stated that "sabotage from within the party" is not understandable.
"Not only must the PNL remain in Government, but I believe that Romania can have a decade of right-wing government. For this to be possible there is need for actions, for concrete activities that produce palpable benefits for citizens, not only discourses and promises. We have the necessary instruments, we have the adequate plans, we have the funds to allow us to apply them. Let us have the wisdom, and maturity to sit at the same table again, the table of discussions for solutions for Romania! " the head of state also said.
He reiterated the appeal to responsibility and maturity made to the parties in the government arc, drawing attention "to all parliamentary parties, [that] we risk definitively losing the trust of the electorate in politics. It would be extremely grave, because, when people are disappointed by those who represent them, there is a divide created between the electors and the elected, impossible to fill."
President Klaus Iohannis showed that the priorities of governing remain unchanged.
"Romanians want investments in healthcare and infrastructure, Romanians want the elimination of bureaucracy and digitization, Romanians want higher income and support for vulnerable categories. Romanians want a better education for their children, Romanians want to fulfill their European dream, of a prosperous way of life in a free and democratic society. Romania, like many other European states, is currently facing acute challenges, multiple crises overlapping. In order to better manage them, there is need for an efficient government," said Iohannis.
