Klaus Iohannis said : "If I could turn back time, I wish that the Social Democratic government that considered that beating and tear gassing the Romanians was the right thing to do had not existed, and that the abuses of August 10 had not happened. But they did happen, no matter how much we wish this hadn't happened. The important thing is to shed light [on those events]. And if it lasts longer, it's bad enough that it takes so long. But what is important to me is that the real culprits are held accountable and I am sure that this will happen. I trust the judiciary and I am convinced that those responsible will be held accountable and, in the end, that's what really matters," External link

Klaus Iohannis says ( about Ion Antonescu ) : "On the occasion of the European Roma Holocaust Remembrance Day we recall the atrocities suffered by the Roma in Europe, during the World War II, and bring tribute to the memory of these innocent victims. This commitment is crucial for Romania. The remembrance is a paramount dimension in our lives. Almost half a million of Roma children, women and men were murdered during the Nazi occupation in Europe. In Romania, 25k Roma were deported to Transnistria, at the order of the Romanian dictator and Nazi ally Ion Antonescu. Approximately 11k Roma have lost their lives. An unbearable grief, caused by an irreversible loss. Many of them have lost their lives to diseases, cold or starvation. Undoubtedly, it has been an act of deliberate, systematic murder. Discriminated, humiliated, deprived from their rights, excluded from the society and eventually locked up and murdered, the Roma were victims to a criminal regime, characterised by racism, discrimination, terror, propaganda, persecution and human rights' infringement. We admit with grief that among the artisans were also Romanians," External link

Klaus Iohannis added : "We must preserve vivid the memory of the victims and consolidate the efforts of fighting anti-Semitism, xenophobia and Holocaust negation. Our paramount duty is to make sure that each generation acknowledges and keeps the truth. The genocide against the Roma is frequently ignored and less studied. Therefore, it is important that it is acknowledged and studied in schools, publicly debated, openly remembered. By assuming the Holocaust and the atrocities that happened in that period, we can prevent the mistakes of the past be repeated," External link

We established the priority areas that we will finance with this money, because we want Romania to prosper in the coming years and this can only be done through massive investments in areas with major impact for citizens. We make infrastructure investments the priority zero. We have money to build motorways, railways, to modernize energy and environmental infrastructure, to implement digitization programs in economy, in administration, to invest in education and health infrastructure, so that Romanians will have access to quality health services, which they will benefit from in modern hospitals, at European standards," External link

Klaus Iohannis said : "The National Anthem of Romania has an important role in maintaining the hope of Romanians for freedom, crowning their great victory, glorifying the heroes of the country. We live in a modern and democratic Romania that kept its pro-European path and which has consolidated its role within NATO, the main guarantor of our security. We are going through a period profoundly marked by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, with significant effects on several dimensions both at the national, as well as the global level and which has imposed a radical change of the way in which we live our lives. Today, more than ever, the message of the National Anthem continues to be as strong and motivating, as it inspires us and urges us to dedicate ourselves to building a powerful and prosperous country, which can manage as good as possible the crisis situations on all corridors. I express hope that the appeal to national unity and national solidarity sent by the anthem's lyrics will coagulate the efforts of all citizens and the institutions to collaborate for the development and affirmation of the country," External link

Klaus Iohannis affirmed : "Only by respecting these values, the judiciary contributes to building trust in the state and the law. In recent years, the public agenda has been dominated by repeated attempts to subordinate justice to politics, and all the energy of democratic forces in Romania has focused on stopping such steps. The time has come for all this potential for change and improvement of the judiciary, as a public service, to be exploited in a constructive approach: the need for adequate infrastructure, clear, coherent and predictable legislation, a constant and honest dialogue within the judiciary and building consensus on its priorities are aspects on which there can be no delays. At the same time, the fight against corruption remains a priority, as this scourge hinders economic and social development, affects the consolidation of democracy and must therefore be strongly combated. Zero tolerance for any act of corruption will bring about profound changes and beneficial to the whole society" External link

Education thus gradually moved to the online environment and adapting to the new paradigm wasn't easy at all. For students, this has been a complex period, as they have lived different experiences, depending on their technical possibilities, the teachers' involvement and flexibility, the parents' support and resources. For the students in final years, who were about to take national exams, there was need for fast and efficient solutions to ensure an as easy as possible access to education. Various methods have been used for going through the subjects, recapping exam contents and maintaining the learning pace," External link

Klaus Iohannis concludes : "I congratulate you for the creativity and involvement you have shown, becoming beacons for your students and colleagues. In times of crisis, it is important to stand in solidarity and not forget our mission. But I would also like us to see the opportunity that arises from this situation. A large number of dedicated teachers from all over the country have prepared their lessons and held classes online with their students. Many didn't limit themselves to just sending worksheets or homework, but they held their classes live on various conference platforms. Although they didn't have any previous training in online teaching, and despite lacking the technical resources to do so, many teachers have gone the extra mile, stepping out of their comfort zone and adjusting to the online environment. Contact between students and their teachers is important not only in terms of knowledge transfer. I think we can all agree that education is not just a process of delivering information, but is represented by the entire school environment in which the student is encouraged to discover the world. I congratulate those teachers who didn't forget their mission and who were at the side of their students during this period!," External link

I think it is obvious that Romania needs money to catch up with the average EU.

The accusations are baseless. Why dismiss the government? Because it took the necessary measures, because they took the measures in time, because we managed to prevent the spread of the epidemic, because they came up with measures for economic recovery that are already producing results because their way of thinking was economic recovery.

The government has come up, made a good budget, managed the epidemic very well, has managed the crisis situation very well, has a sound economic thinking, while putting forth a very good and solid economic programme. So, this government has done infinitely more than expected from it when it was first voted and now when there are only a few months until the elections the Social Democratic Party (PSD) is waving up the motion of censure just to show it is there.

PSD has helped UDMR (Democratic Union of Hungarians of Romania) to pass through the Chamber of Deputies a law that gives wide autonomy to the Szeklerland. It is unbelievable to what point this PSD brought us. It is unbelievable what agreements are made in Parliament. While I, we, the government, the other authorities are fighting for the lives of Romanians, battling to get rid of this pandemic, the great PSD is fighting in the secret offices of Parliament to give Transylvania away to the Hungarians. Jo napot, Ciolacu! What has the leader of Budapest, Viktor Orban, promised you in exchange for this agreement? You see, my fellow nationals, that's what a toxic majority, the toxic PSD majority means. Therefore, my dear ones, it is now better understood why I wanted early elections.

As such, the medical staff - and I am talking about doctors, medical assistants, pharmacists, laboratory personnel, other medical personnel - who bear the brunt in this fight with coronavirus must be protected with priority, by all possible means! Through re-directing sanitary equipment and materials toward the doctors and medical assistants who fight in the front line and promptly provide them with an appropriate number of protection masks, protective suits, gloves, medical equipment and disinfectant substances. I know that in some hospitals, things are not clear yet, but I know, just as well, that through the care of the Government, at these hours, acquisitions are made, in order to support the personnel in the hospitals.

And it will be over and it will be up to us how many Romanians will be protected from this infection.

Klaus Iohannis conchide : „În cazul în care Parlamentul îşi arogă competenţa de legiferare, în condiţiile, domeniul şi cu finalitatea urmărite, se încalcă principiul separaţiei şi echilibrului puterilor în stat, consacrat de art. 1 alin. (4) din Constituţie, viciu care afectează legea în ansamblu. Totodată, acceptarea ideii potrivit căreia Parlamentul îşi poate exercita competenţa de autoritate legiuitoare în mod discreţionar, oricând şi în orice condiţii, adoptând legi în domenii care aparţin în exclusivitate actelor cu caracter infralegal, administrativ, ar echivala cu o abatere de la prerogativele constituţionale ale acestei autorităţi, consacrate de art. 61 alin. (1) din Constituţie, şi transformarea acesteia în autoritate publică executivă, aspect ce contravine şi prevederilor art. 102 alin. (1) din Constituţie ce consacră rolul Guvernului. Reiese faptul că, indiferent dacă ne raportăm la dispoziţiile legale în vigoare la momentul adoptării legii ori la dispoziţiile OUG 57/2019 privind Codul administrativ, transferul interdomenial prin lege ca act al Parlamentului al imobilului vizat este neconstituţional” External link

Klaus Iohannis spune : „În societăţile democratice, justiţia independentă este garanţia fundamentală pentru înfăptuirea dreptăţii şi menţinerea echilibrului social. Esenţa principiului statului de drept constă în respectarea legilor şi în asigurarea unei justiţii corecte şi aplicate egal tuturor cetăţenilor. Pentru a putea fi însă îndeplinite aceste deziderate, este nevoie ca legile să fie accesibile, clare şi predictibile. În caz contrar, când sunt făcute schimbări constante, fără o direcţie unitară, respectul pentru lege are de suferit. Ultimii ani au fost marcaţi de încercări repetate de a subordona justiţia politicului, prin modificări intempestive ale legislaţiei de organizare a sistemului judiciar, ale statutului magistraţilor şi ale legislaţiei penale. Acest asalt a determinat reacţia promptă a cetăţenilor, a magistraţilor, care şi-au apărat cu demnitate valorile care le definesc misiunea, a forţelor politice ataşate principiilor democratice, precum şi a instituţiilor europene" External link

În contextul în care legea urmează să se aplice practic începând cu anul 2020, reanalizarea acestei reglementări, inclusiv sub aspectul impactului economic, este absolut necesară pentru a nu fi în situaţia prorogării succesive a aplicării legii sau, mai grav, în imposibilitatea materializării tuturor drepturilor şi beneficiilor instituite pentru personalul feroviar" External link

Lucian Romascanu told ( about Klaus Iohannis ) : "Another press statement from President Iohannis ended a few minutes ago. We find that not a day goes by without electioneering on the part of the president. As we have seen, this statement had two points and made the president's priority transparent - it is PSD. Instead of thinking about the problems facing the Romanians, the economic problems, what needs to be done together with the government to revive the economy, the president continued to blame his forever scapegoat, namely PSD," External link

A month and a half after the state of emergency was declared, Romanians are still waiting for firm and coherent decisions, Mr. President!

Klaus Iohannis says ( about Ion Antonescu ) : "On the occasion of the European Roma Holocaust Remembrance Day we recall the atrocities suffered by the Roma in Europe, during the World War II, and bring tribute to the memory of these innocent victims. This commitment is crucial for Romania. The remembrance is a paramount dimension in our lives. Almost half a million of Roma children, women and men were murdered during the Nazi occupation in Europe. In Romania, 25k Roma were deported to Transnistria, at the order of the Romanian dictator and Nazi ally Ion Antonescu. Approximately 11k Roma have lost their lives. An unbearable grief, caused by an irreversible loss. Many of them have lost their lives to diseases, cold or starvation. Undoubtedly, it has been an act of deliberate, systematic murder. Discriminated, humiliated, deprived from their rights, excluded from the society and eventually locked up and murdered, the Roma were victims to a criminal regime, characterised by racism, discrimination, terror, propaganda, persecution and human rights' infringement. We admit with grief that among the artisans were also Romanians," External link

Therefore, it is important that it is acknowledged and studied in schools, publicly debated, openly remembered.

Klaus Iohannis said : "The National Anthem of Romania has an important role in maintaining the hope of Romanians for freedom, crowning their great victory, glorifying the heroes of the country. We live in a modern and democratic Romania that kept its pro-European path and which has consolidated its role within NATO, the main guarantor of our security. We are going through a period profoundly marked by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, with significant effects on several dimensions both at the national, as well as the global level and which has imposed a radical change of the way in which we live our lives. Today, more than ever, the message of the National Anthem continues to be as strong and motivating, as it inspires us and urges us to dedicate ourselves to building a powerful and prosperous country, which can manage as good as possible the crisis situations on all corridors. I express hope that the appeal to national unity and national solidarity sent by the anthem's lyrics will coagulate the efforts of all citizens and the institutions to collaborate for the development and affirmation of the country," External link

The time has come for all this potential for change and improvement of the judiciary, as a public service, to be exploited in a constructive approach: the need for adequate infrastructure, clear, coherent and predictable legislation, a constant and honest dialogue within the judiciary and building consensus on its priorities are aspects on which there can be no delays. At the same time, the fight against corruption remains a priority, as this scourge hinders economic and social development, affects the consolidation of democracy and must therefore be strongly combated.

In times of crisis, it is important to stand in solidarity and not forget our mission. But I would also like us to see the opportunity that arises from this situation. A large number of dedicated teachers from all over the country have prepared their lessons and held classes online with their students. Many didn't limit themselves to just sending worksheets or homework, but they held their classes live on various conference platforms. Although they didn't have any previous training in online teaching, and despite lacking the technical resources to do so, many teachers have gone the extra mile, stepping out of their comfort zone and adjusting to the online environment. Contact between students and their teachers is important not only in terms of knowledge transfer. I think we can all agree that education is not just a process of delivering information, but is represented by the entire school environment in which the student is encouraged to discover the world.

Klaus Iohannis said : "I issued the decree establishing the state of emergency in Romania for 30 days. This decree is rather sizeable and contains measures that I have discussed with you and the other ministers, plus some measures that were considered necessary in the discussions with the members of the country's Supreme Council for National Defence, that endorsed the plan of measures, as those of you who are members of the CSAT know very well. I am interested, at this stage, to move ahead very quickly and I expect from you to communicate, each in the field you manage, what measures you have already taken from the ones set out in the decree, what measures you have planned and within what timeframe, what agenda for the following days. I repeat, the state of emergency lasts 30 days and it is imperative - both for this reason, and in the public interest - that we move very, very fast," External link

Klaus Iohannis conchide : „În cazul în care Parlamentul îşi arogă competenţa de legiferare, în condiţiile, domeniul şi cu finalitatea urmărite, se încalcă principiul separaţiei şi echilibrului puterilor în stat, consacrat de art. 1 alin. (4) din Constituţie, viciu care afectează legea în ansamblu. Totodată, acceptarea ideii potrivit căreia Parlamentul îşi poate exercita competenţa de autoritate legiuitoare în mod discreţionar, oricând şi în orice condiţii, adoptând legi în domenii care aparţin în exclusivitate actelor cu caracter infralegal, administrativ, ar echivala cu o abatere de la prerogativele constituţionale ale acestei autorităţi, consacrate de art. 61 alin. (1) din Constituţie, şi transformarea acesteia în autoritate publică executivă, aspect ce contravine şi prevederilor art. 102 alin. (1) din Constituţie ce consacră rolul Guvernului. Reiese faptul că, indiferent dacă ne raportăm la dispoziţiile legale în vigoare la momentul adoptării legii ori la dispoziţiile OUG 57/2019 privind Codul administrativ, transferul interdomenial prin lege ca act al Parlamentului al imobilului vizat este neconstituţional” External link

Klaus Iohannis spune : „În societăţile democratice, justiţia independentă este garanţia fundamentală pentru înfăptuirea dreptăţii şi menţinerea echilibrului social. Esenţa principiului statului de drept constă în respectarea legilor şi în asigurarea unei justiţii corecte şi aplicate egal tuturor cetăţenilor. Pentru a putea fi însă îndeplinite aceste deziderate, este nevoie ca legile să fie accesibile, clare şi predictibile. În caz contrar, când sunt făcute schimbări constante, fără o direcţie unitară, respectul pentru lege are de suferit. Ultimii ani au fost marcaţi de încercări repetate de a subordona justiţia politicului, prin modificări intempestive ale legislaţiei de organizare a sistemului judiciar, ale statutului magistraţilor şi ale legislaţiei penale. Acest asalt a determinat reacţia promptă a cetăţenilor, a magistraţilor, care şi-au apărat cu demnitate valorile care le definesc misiunea, a forţelor politice ataşate principiilor democratice, precum şi a instituţiilor europene" External link

Klaus Iohannis spune : "În forma transmisă la promulgare, legea menţionată - ce înlocuieşte Decretul nr. 360/1976 privind aprobarea Statutului disciplinar din unităţile de transporturi - se impune, însă, a fi reanalizată de către Parlament atât sub aspectul impactului pe care aceasta îl are asupra sectorului feroviar în ansamblul său, cât şi al modului în care noile dispoziţii se corelează cu alte acte normative. În contextul în care legea urmează să se aplice practic începând cu anul 2020, reanalizarea acestei reglementări, inclusiv sub aspectul impactului economic, este absolut necesară pentru a nu fi în situaţia prorogării succesive a aplicării legii sau, mai grav, în imposibilitatea materializării tuturor drepturilor şi beneficiilor instituite pentru personalul feroviar" External link

Lucian Romascanu told ( about Klaus Iohannis ) : "Another press statement from President Iohannis ended a few minutes ago. We find that not a day goes by without electioneering on the part of the president. As we have seen, this statement had two points and made the president's priority transparent - it is PSD. Instead of thinking about the problems facing the Romanians, the economic problems, what needs to be done together with the government to revive the economy, the president continued to blame his forever scapegoat, namely PSD," External link

Lucian Romascanu concluded ( about Klaus Iohannis ) : "We also want to remind the president that we can only talk about the past in the past, but about the present and current problems of the Romanian society we cannot continue to talk about in the future tense - we will do, we will analyse, we will prioritise - they do not replace an economic plan. A month and a half after the state of emergency was declared, Romanians are still waiting for firm and coherent decisions, Mr. President! And we ourselves are waiting for the plan together with all Romanians and the entire business community. Anything we, the whole Parliament, may propose or vote on they are not good for PNL and for President Iohannis even if they are good laws and expected by Romanians," External link

Marcel Ciolacu wrote ( about Klaus Iohannis ) : "Today's outburst of President Iohannis shows how low you can stoop in politics. It is an outburst that totally disqualifies the presidential office. I want to remind President Iohannis that he had no reaction when the Romanian ambassador to Budapest was tarnished a few days ago. Had he been a true patriot, he would have defended the Romanian ambassador! President Iohannis knew that PSD was against the bill on the autonomy of the Szeklerland, and that at 14:00hrs this bill would be definitively defeated by the Senate. Same as many other similar bills have been rejected over time. However, he had this anti-Romanian and anti-democratic outburst," External link

Given the situation we are in, the president should be concerned about the fate of Romanians, the protection of living standards, the preservation of jobs, the possibility of postponing their loan repayments, solutions for employees who are forced to leave their children alone at home, instead of political aberrations," External link
