BUCHAREST (Romania), November 6 (SeeNews) – Romania’s President Traian Basescu nominated the mayor of one of Bucharest districts, Liviu Negoita, as prime minister-designate on Friday, two days after parliament rejected his previous nomination.
Negoita, 47, is member of the ruling Democrat-Liberal Party, told reporters he has three days to discuss the line-up of his future cabinet with political parties and will present the draft government list to parliament on Monday.
Romania’s parliament rejected on Wednesday the cabinet proposed by previous premier-designate Lucian Croitoru, an advisor to the central bank governor. Basescu nominated Croitoru for the post in mid-October, saying the country needs a premier versed in economic and macroeconomic issues, both at national and international level.
Basescu ignored once again the proposal of the opposition parties for premier-designate - the Sibiu city mayor Klaus Johannis. Opposition Liberals, Social Democrats and ethnic Hungarian party UDMR control two-thirds of the seats in parliament.
