Dacian Ciolos named Romanian Prime Minister-designate by President Iohannis

Baku, November 10, AZERTAC 

President Klaus Iohannis announced, at the end of the second round of consultations with political parties on Tuesday, that he nominates Dacian Ciolos as Prime Minister-designate, according to AGERPRES.

"I nominate Mr Dacian Ciolos for the position of Prime Minister of Romania," Iohannis said at the presidential Cotroceni Palace.

He underscored that the solution for the current period is a technocrats' government.

"There is need for the political parties to clean their ranks and to not promote to the public positions those persons suspected of corruption or who have been involved in corruption deeds," he added.

The president said the local and parliamentary polls due next year must be fair and the rule of law must be strengthened.

Iohannis said Romania stays firm on the European and Euro-Atlantic road.

"There is need that any government that we will have be supported by Parliament, by the political parties so as to take measures guaranteeing sustainable growth," he added.
