Romania’s Prime Minister dismisses the Finance Minister


Romania’s Prime Minister Florin Cîţu announced on Thursday that he has forwarded to the President, Klaus Iohannis the request to dismiss Finance Minister Alexandru Nazare

The Prime Minister is to replace Nazare as interim Minister of Finance, as there is no other proposal at this moment.

“After a discussion with the coalition members on Tuesday evening, when I announced that I requested the resignation of the Minister of Public Finance, he informed that he does not want to resign and prefers to be revoked. Today, after another discussion with the coalition members, I sent to President Klaus Iohannis the request to dismiss Mr Alexandru Nazare from the office of Finance Minister,” said Cîţu after the government meeting on Thursday.

Cîţu stated that the decision was made after the six-month analysis, which showed delayed projects at the Ministry of Finance and that most of these projects are essential for attracting European funds and combating tax evasion.

“I will make sure that all the delayed projects are restarted, and we will correct the mistakes,” added the Prime Minister.
