Romanian Prime Minister-Designate Nicolae Ciucă is determined to meet a deadline and submit the lineup of his proposed government to Parliament by Sunday, as talks over winning support continue, according to Bloomberg.
Ciucă dismissed the possibility of giving up his mandate even if he hasn’t managed to form a majority after six days of talks with two parties, the Social Democrats and USR. He plans to have more meetings with their leaders in the coming days.
Earlier on Wednesday, Liberal Party leader Florin Cîțu didn’t rule out restoring the previous coalition “after a face-to-face” meeting with USR leaders. However, no meeting has been called with USR, the party’s spokesman said, indicating that negotiations haven’t even begun.
“We haven’t closed the door of negotiations to anyone. (…) I will play my cards till the last move,” said Ciucă.
