Prime Minister Ion Chicu said that he didn’t take part in discussions on the formation of alliances and coalitions between the Party of Socialists and the Democratic Party and there were held no discussions about the replacement of ministers in the current Cabinet, IPN reports.
“In the Parliament sitting that I attended and that involved the administrator of both of the parties, I intended to inform strictly about the Government’s activity, the bills for which the two parties voted on November 14 when they gave a vote of confidence to the current executive. They speculate about coalitions, but especially about the distribution of portfolios so as to remain in politics,” Premier Chicu stated in the program “Fourth power” on N4 channel, referring to the statements made recently by the former Democratic heavyweight Andrian Candu.
Ion Chicu said the political discussions on the distribution of posts are premature and if the parties start discussions about the formation of alliances, he will learn about them from press reports. However, no changes in the composition of the Government can be made before he states his opinion about candidates as the Prime Minister.
“Discussions with the Democratic Party are held and I also attend them sometimes, but they center only on the potential support for bills with which the Government comes to Parliament. At the end of March, we must propose a serious correction to the 2020 budget, referring to all the investments in infrastructure. These are bills that should be discussed with any MP, but they didn’t discuss possible reshuffles and alliances in my presence,” stated the official.
