Until we have many vaccinated people, we need to strictly observe all the measures imposed. We all want to return to a normal life as soon as possible, but that is possible if, on the one hand, we follow the restrictions, and on the other hand, a large part - 60-70% of the population - must be vaccinated and then, if we do things right, we may return to a normal life this summer," External link

Klaus Iohannis told : "The subject was whether or not we open schools for in-person learning, and I can tell you that we, who took part in the discussion, reached an extremely important conclusion unanimously. From the second semester, that is after the one-week school break in early February, February 8, when the second semester begins, most schools will reopen, obviously, given that the pandemic is going on much the same way as it has in recent weeks. That means most of schools will reopen, pupils return to school. It is practically a return to the decentralised system that takes into account local developments in the pandemic," External link

If the area falls under the red scenario (...) kindergarten and primary school children will go to school in person for a while, but the others do not go to school. (...)

I remain consistent with the idea that such an approach is an act of great responsibility, which must be done in such a way that legislative interventions really correspond to the social, economic and political reality in Romania. The revision of the fundamental Law can be used neither as an electoral campaign subject nor ridiculed, because any change has profound, long-term implications. The Constitution goes beyond the horizon of a generation and, for this reason, a thorough analysis of the consequences on the evolution of the state is required. Therefore, a future revision of the Constitution must authentically encompass not only the aspirations of the present generations, but also those of the next ones," External link

We ordered and received the first set of such tests, which have been deployed to emergency units, ambulances and so on. It's still a relatively small number. A tender has already been launched for approximately 3 million tests and the procurement of such kits will continue. Both WHO and ECDC - the competent European institute - recommendations are for testing to be done where a lot of cases occur, especially in quarantined areas, and that's what we are headed for. I hope the relevant purchase is done in due time.

Despite facelift attempts, it remains the same retrograde formation of red barons, attached to a way of doing politics the citizens no longer tolerate and no longer want. What better proof of the fact that PSD has not understood anything and that it's acting strictly in the interests of the party than the permanent undermining in Parliament of all the government's efforts to keep the pandemic under control? How can PSD's attitude of burdening the state budget beyond limit with all sorts of electoral pork-barrelling, despite the Social Democrat MPs being perfectly aware that there is simply no money for such measures, be termed otherwise than cynical and irresponsible? Or let's take another relevant example: while the Romanians and the government are battling the pandemic and its economic effects, the PSD is still trying to pass various tax exemptions like that for casinos and the gambling industry. This is how a harmful party is acting in Parliament, which has anything but the people's benefit and needs on its mind! Well, this has to stop!," External link

This objective can only be achieved through a broad joint approach of the entire society, each of us, a role to which the Jewish communities in Romania and their leaders have fully committed themselves. Today, we see how the COVID-19 pandemic poses challenges that our society has never experienced before. Getting out of this difficult ordeal will be by citizens and officials acting responsibly, and it will also be the proof of the solidarity of the whole nation.

The failure to remember history as it was has sad consequences. Unfortunately, although Romania has made extraordinary progress in recovering the memory of the Holocaust, we have been witnessing for years grotesque campaigns for the public rehabilitation of sinister figures of the 'black past', people of culture, politicians or military who, through their ideas and deeds, have led to the debasement, mockery and murder of fellow people.

(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

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.

That gang of losers only enjoys a circumstantial majority, this new CDR [Romanian Democratic Convention was an electoral alliance of several centre-right political parties in Romania, active from 1991 until 2000 - editor's note] has no legitimacy before Romanians, before their vote and their options for Prime Minister. As I have already said before, PSD will fully enter opposition. And we will make a tough opposition, for Romanians deserve to be represented by PSD, and we already see that the current CDR has no solution to the health crisis, or for the economic crisis. We will wait and see the governing programme of the new CDR and, not last, we will wait to see the state budget, which will for sure be one of austerity," External link

We all want to return to a normal life as soon as possible, but that is possible if, on the one hand, we follow the restrictions, and on the other hand, a large part - 60-70% of the population - must be vaccinated and then, if we do things right, we may return to a normal life this summer," External link

From the second semester, that is after the one-week school break in early February, February 8, when the second semester begins, most schools will reopen, obviously, given that the pandemic is going on much the same way as it has in recent weeks. That means most of schools will reopen, pupils return to school. It is practically a return to the decentralised system that takes into account local developments in the pandemic," External link

Klaus Iohannis says : "In recent years, the revision of the Constitution has been discussed. I remain consistent with the idea that such an approach is an act of great responsibility, which must be done in such a way that legislative interventions really correspond to the social, economic and political reality in Romania. The revision of the fundamental Law can be used neither as an electoral campaign subject nor ridiculed, because any change has profound, long-term implications. The Constitution goes beyond the horizon of a generation and, for this reason, a thorough analysis of the consequences on the evolution of the state is required. Therefore, a future revision of the Constitution must authentically encompass not only the aspirations of the present generations, but also those of the next ones," External link

This vote not only enshrined the replacement of an authoritarian political regime with a pluralist one, but the aspiration for freedom, which guided the Romanians in the dark period of the communist regime. Romania's constitution is a young one, so that the consolidation of our democratic path depends on the deep understanding of its spirit and on the authentic assumption by all political and institutional actors of the values that underlie it," External link

We ordered and received the first set of such tests, which have been deployed to emergency units, ambulances and so on. It's still a relatively small number. A tender has already been launched for approximately 3 million tests and the procurement of such kits will continue. Both WHO and ECDC - the competent European institute - recommendations are for testing to be done where a lot of cases occur, especially in quarantined areas, and that's what we are headed for. I hope the relevant purchase is done in due time. It's a method that will for sure significantly increase the number of tests and give us a clearer picture of the spread of the pandemic," External link

Despite facelift attempts, it remains the same retrograde formation of red barons, attached to a way of doing politics the citizens no longer tolerate and no longer want. What better proof of the fact that PSD has not understood anything and that it's acting strictly in the interests of the party than the permanent undermining in Parliament of all the government's efforts to keep the pandemic under control? How can PSD's attitude of burdening the state budget beyond limit with all sorts of electoral pork-barrelling, despite the Social Democrat MPs being perfectly aware that there is simply no money for such measures, be termed otherwise than cynical and irresponsible? Or let's take another relevant example: while the Romanians and the government are battling the pandemic and its economic effects, the PSD is still trying to pass various tax exemptions like that for casinos and the gambling industry. This is how a harmful party is acting in Parliament, which has anything but the people's benefit and needs on its mind! Well, this has to stop!," External link

This objective can only be achieved through a broad joint approach of the entire society, each of us, a role to which the Jewish communities in Romania and their leaders have fully committed themselves. Today, we see how the COVID-19 pandemic poses challenges that our society has never experienced before. Getting out of this difficult ordeal will be by citizens and officials acting responsibly, and it will also be the proof of the solidarity of the whole nation.

We have all been living through a situation that a few months ago could only have been possible in books or films. Until we can defeat the virus that has changed the way of life for all of us, we will have to follow some special measures in school designed not to endanger your health or the health of your loved ones. You will have the opportunity to be a superhero who, when wearing a mask, washing hands frequently and listening to the guidance of teachers, protects parents and grandparents, the ones who are most at risk of falling ill. I have great confidence in you and together we shall overcome this period," External link

Klaus Iohannis said : "Dear teachers, the beautiful mission you have chosen is becoming an extremely difficult one this year. The priority objective of providing quality education is now doubled by the need to carry out the educational act under as safe as possible for both students and staff health circumstances. We all walk in unfamiliar territory and that is why it will take a lot of patience, flexibility and energy; you will have to find internal resources and often adapt to unforeseen situations, but I am convinced that you will succeed in steering the children. However, I am convinced that you will be able to accompany the children on the fascinating journey of knowledge, whether you will be with them in class or at a distance, through online means of communication. I wish you a good school year and I want to thank you for your involvement!," 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

George Simion said ( about Klaus Iohannis ) : "The request we have is the urgent reopening of schools. We took note of the educational unions' opinion and are definitely supporting the reopening of schools. We must listen to the teachers, we must listen to the parents, we need to think about our children's future and schools must be reopened. (...) The Romanian people has spoken, they wish for schools to be opened again.

Marcel Ciolacu said ( about Klaus Iohannis ) : "PSD will not attend the cheap circus led by President Iohannis. We have decided today that PSD won't go to the consultations at the Cotroceni Palace. That gang of losers only enjoys a circumstantial majority, this new CDR [Romanian Democratic Convention was an electoral alliance of several centre-right political parties in Romania, active from 1991 until 2000 - editor's note] has no legitimacy before Romanians, before their vote and their options for Prime Minister. As I have already said before, PSD will fully enter opposition. And we will make a tough opposition, for Romanians deserve to be represented by PSD, and we already see that the current CDR has no solution to the health crisis, or for the economic crisis. We will wait and see the governing programme of the new CDR and, not last, we will wait to see the state budget, which will for sure be one of austerity," External link

Dear Romanians, the December 6 elections are also about Romania and how Romania will look in the future, these are elections that will define Romania's path in the coming years, the elections of December 6 are also about common sense and about humanity and about solidarity and responsibility. The elections of December 6 are also about honesty, fairness, competence and ability to meet objectives. We have won the last three elections - for the European Parliament, presidential and local elections - parliamentary elections are instead the decisive elections in which all Romanians who trusted us, who trusted President Klaus Iohannis, and who believed in our ability to put Romania first must come to the polls and vote with those who have shown that they are able to develop Romania, to brings improvements in the life of each of the Romanians.
