Ludovic Orban said ( about Renate Weber ) : "Renate Weber was not the Romanian Ombudsman, but the PSD [Social Democratic Party]'s lawyer and the lawyer of PSD interests'. She was truly a 'devil's advocate.' The main reason why I supported the dismissal of Mrs. Weber is that she endangered the life and health of Romanians. There are several points of view, I had a strong enough reasoning. I think the revocation of Renate Weber from the position of Ombudsman is an expected outcome," External link

Ludovic Orban said : "She was summoned and was present in the Legal Committees. She could come to participate [ed.n.- in plenary). Was she expecting some special invitation? The same way it was conveyed to her that she can participate in the parliamentary procedures ... This is a pretext, it is not a serious reason. PSD can attack at the Constitutional Court" External link

Ludovic Orban said ( about Renate Weber ) : "Today, based on the report prepared by the judiciary committees of the two chambers of Parliament, a plenary sitting of Parliament decided to remove Renate Weber from the position of ombudsman for reasons related to the violation of the Constitution and the laws of the country. It is a decision that was made in accordance with constitutional and legal procedures, which has a substantiation and has a report of the judiciary committees that clearly mentions the violations of the Constitution and the legislation that were the basis for the removal," External link

Ludovic Orban said : "We also followed very carefully the response related to the vulnerable consumer versus the small subsidy given to all. Of course, the subject is a bit more complicated, but there is preponderance in the use of resources to support vulnerable consumers. Unfortunately, in the case of steam for heating in Romania - and there is an extremely deep crisis can occur in the thermal energy system if no major investment is made in the near future - the subsidy system is still used for price differences, which practically subsidises Gcal for all consumers who they are networked, not making a distinction between those on low incomes and those on medium and high incomes," External link

Ludovic Orban explained ( about Commission ) : "From the European Commission's point of view there aren't any requests regarding certain measures that need to be taken. I've heard so much nonsense today from the Opposition. I did not wish to reply, because I considered the ratification of EURATOM to be more important, but I cannot hold back. The Commission does not give us homework, it does not urge us. There are certain matters here related to the fact that Romania is under a procedure of excessive deficit, which was initiated as a result of 2019's deficit and that there is a plan of gradual recovery within the accepted deficit through the EU treaty of 3% of the GDP and the European Commission is preoccupied, with the start of utilizing loans that are being calculated, adding to the public deficit and the public debt, for that recovery plan below 3% not to be affected. I will give you an example: they are interested in the sustainability of public wages," External link

Ludovic Orban said : "We have come to import seeds, although Romania was a country that had advanced research on seeds, especially in the vegetable growing area. You can see, we reckon we are spending over 2 billion euros on seeds, but we have the capacity to develop in this field. Our goal is to encourage everything that can be done in Romania to be done in Romania. And we do not have to do anything in Romania in terms of seeds; first of all we have to preserve what we have in a gene bank, and later to develop a capitalisation system, so as to allow the Romanian producers to be able to purchase certified Romanian seeds," External link

Ludovic Orban ( about Ludovic Orban ) : "Sunt conştient de faptul că, odată înscris în lupta pentru un nou mandat de preşedinte al Partidului Naţional Liberal, odată cu acest mandat, trebuie să iau în calcul şi candidatura la Preşedinţia României, pentru că preşedintele Partidului Naţional Liberal va trebui să intre în lupta pentru alegerile prezidenţiale din 2024. Sigur, pe de altă parte, sunt un om care am în vedere toate alternativele, în politică e bine să ai o gândire strategică”, (Kanal D, 24 martie). Intenția liderului PNL de a candida la alegerile prezidențiale din 2024 i-a nemulțumit pe unii lideri care consideră că Orban nu poate aduce o victorie partidului. În plus, lui Orban i se reproșează faptul că a condus partidul discreționar, fără a permite accesul la decizii liderilor din Biroul Politic. " External link

Ludovic Orban said : "Integration into the European Union and, of course, integration into NATO have been objectives supported by all political forces and, in general, by society as a whole. It is very clear now that these decisions have had a favorable impact on the lives of Romanian citizens. Since the moment we became members of the European Union, Romania has been steadily moving forward in all respects and the lives of Romanians have been better and better. It is very clear that the European Union is in a period of changes and challenges. There are many things we should think about, because there are many enemies outside Europe and often inside Europe, who do not feel very well in the European concept and try to obtain various advantages, economic and political gains without taking into account the European Union. European institutions need to be closer to the people," External link

PNL a fost întotdeauna un partid care a ţinut la criteriul integrităţii, a susţinut justiţia, sigur, respectând şi principiul nevinovăţiei, pentru că doar o instanţă poate să hotărască dacă cineva este vinovat.

Ludovic Orban told : "The decision on the nomination for Prime Minister belonged to the coalition, I would even say that USR-PLUS was partial for my colleague and friend Florin Citu's taking over as Prime Minister. One cannot replace the Prime Minister just because the sacking of an evidently poorly performing minister doesn't sit well with a coalition party. (...) I was extremely delicate and refrained from criticism of one or another of the ministers, because there is a coalition spirit and we must discuss these matters among ourselves," External link

Ludovic Orban said ( about Vlad Voiculescu ) : "Every minister must be aware that before attacking their Premier, they must write their resignation. Anyway, they must know that they will be sent home, just like Voiculescu. In no democratic country in the world does a minister allow themselves to attack the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister is the leader of the government. The moment you attack the Prime Minister, you no longer belong in the governing lineup. I therefore warn the ministers that this is not a whim. It is practically the Prime Minister's obligation to remove from office any minister who attacks the Premier," External link

Ludovic Orban said : "I took note of Prime Minister Florin Citu's decision to remove the Minister of Health from office. As I said Monday after the coalition's sitting, it is not only the right, but also the prime minister's obligation to ensure the proper functioning of the Government and to intervene when necessary, in order to ensure good governance, the implementation of the governing programme and the service of the public interest even by changing a minister. I say it upfront that for the PNL there is no other political solution of government than the current governing coalition and that, from our point of view, this decision of Prime Minister Florin Citu is a decision that has nothing to do with our firm commitment to maintaining the current governing coalition. It is strictly a decision that aims to appoint at the Ministry of Health, one of the most important ministries in the structure of the Government, all the more so since we are in a third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the USR PLUS themselves to appoint a minister who will responsibly manage the field and who has the capacity to fight effectively for increasing the quality of the medical act and for the fight against the pandemic," External link

Ludovic Orban said ( about Vlad Voiculescu ) : "As for the matter regarding Mr. Voiculescu, I told the colleagues from USR PLUS very clearly that the exclusive political responsibility for keeping minister Voiculescu belongs to the party that supports him, but as regards us, we are deeply worried about the way the Ministry of Health is being managed, and take notice, the Ministry of Health is one of the most tried Ministries during the time of the pandemic and the conditions that we are facing with this third pandemic wave, that our exigency towards the way the the Ministry is being run is stretched thin, and also (...) we very clearly support the Prime Minister's right, that when he considers that a minister is affecting the smooth operation of the Government, he is not carrying his task and is not putting the governing program into practice and is generating situations which can jeopardize the operation of the Government, to propose to change that minister," External link

Ludovic Orban said : "As long as you derive income from various activities, as long as you are an economically active person, my opinion is that taxes and contributions must be paid, regardless of age, especially because the bill that is being debated and in procedure for being adopted by the government provides for the possibility of gainful employment over the age of 65, the retirement age, up to the age of 70, as a right. If someone asks to continue gainful employment after reaching the age of retirement, that is a personal decision and rather a right. As such, I do not see why they should stop paying the pension contributions. In principle, it is very important that the tax system be based on very clear principles; discriminatory taxation must be reduced as much as possible, equal treatment of the citizens must be secured from a fiscal point of view," External link

I do not comment a comment. With respect to the calculation of the incidence rate, it was known during the entire time, an application have been developed with the support of the STS (Special Telecommunications Service), called Coronaforms, through which application the whole process became transparent and known. The test centres, the Public Health Directorates, the INSP (National Public Health Institute), the Health House, the family doctors, the diagnosed patients were all there, in the application.

Ludovic Orban ( about Ludovic Orban ) : "Sunt conştient de faptul că, odată înscris în lupta pentru un nou mandat de preşedinte al Partidului Naţional Liberal, odată cu acest mandat, trebuie să iau în calcul şi candidatura la Preşedinţia României, pentru că preşedintele Partidului Naţional Liberal va trebui să intre în lupta pentru alegerile prezidenţiale din 2024. Sigur, pe de altă parte, sunt un om care am în vedere toate alternativele, în politică e bine să ai o gândire strategică”, (Kanal D, 24 martie). Intenția liderului PNL de a candida la alegerile prezidențiale din 2024 i-a nemulțumit pe unii lideri care consideră că Orban nu poate aduce o victorie partidului. În plus, lui Orban i se reproșează faptul că a condus partidul discreționar, fără a permite accesul la decizii liderilor din Biroul Politic. " External link

Marcel Ciolacu told ( about Ludovic Orban ) : "One of the things I am taking issue with Orban now is that he lacks the ability to make the difference between November last year, when he came with the first government - although his second ruling line-up was actually the same - and the challenges that came after March with this pandemic, his inability to change according to the Romanians' needs and priorities. You simply cannot carry on with no reshuffle, with the same people who kept us locked up in our homes for 60 days; 60 days on, the hospitals are still unprepared, we keep the schools closed for 6 months, open them because we have local elections and then we close them again. There is no prevention, there is no vision, more than that, we have moved away from everything that is happening in Europe, from the decisions that are taken in Europe, where, for example, schools remained open; schools stayed open even during wartime, no one has allowed himself to do this until now," External link

Marcel Ciolacu told ( about Ludovic Orban ) : "Every Romanian has understood why Ludovic Orban and his incompetent government do not make the budget public. If they stay in power, they will increase the VAT and sell everything that's left valuable in the state's assets, all the profitable Romanian companies. They will do the only thing they know - cut wages and axe jobs. I am sure that the IMF will be here in January if this inept and visionless government remains in office," External link

Gabriela Firea stated ( about Ludovic Orban ) : "Today, in the session of the National Political Committee we took the decision to make all the necessary demarches to call Prime Minister Ludovic Orban to Parliament with a report regarding the situation of the budget for next year. I don't understand why it's not uploaded in decisional transparency and in public transparency the draft budget for next year. If there is nothing to hide, if all is fair towards Romanians, why is the budget for next year not published, why is there not a press conference at the government level so that Romanians find out what are the concrete intentions of the Government regarding the VAT, for example. There are economic analysts, also economic consultants who in this period are conducting all sorts of calculations and schemes of how the Romanian economy will evolve the moment VAT increases," External link

Gabriela Firea said ( about Ludovic Orban ) : "To what extent can we believe these promises so long as the Government also promised to respect the law regarding pensions, that it will double (children, ed. n.) allowances, that it will increase the salaries of teachers. Unfortunately, they have not kept their word, so it's not only us but firstly the citizens who don't take their word and can't trust these statements that are, I would say, even electoral, of the government who's promising milk and honey, but is not doing a minimum gesture of respect towards Romanians, namely to publish the budget for next year so everyone sees what the financing sources are, what are the expenses proposed, what's the situation with taxes and tariffs. We are announcing now, even before the presence of Prime Minister Orban in Parliament, that the PSD will not agree in any way with the increase of the VAT. This tax, once raised, will affect Romanians with low and average incomes, meaning those who are right now affected by the measures of this incompetent Government. It's totally unfair and unjust to strike again, in this period, the Romanians with low and average incomes," External link

Ludovic Orban said ( about Renate Weber ) : "Renate Weber was not the Romanian Ombudsman, but the PSD [Social Democratic Party]'s lawyer and the lawyer of PSD interests'. She was truly a 'devil's advocate.' The main reason why I supported the dismissal of Mrs. Weber is that she endangered the life and health of Romanians. There are several points of view, I had a strong enough reasoning. I think the revocation of Renate Weber from the position of Ombudsman is an expected outcome," External link

Ludovic Orban said : "We also followed very carefully the response related to the vulnerable consumer versus the small subsidy given to all. Of course, the subject is a bit more complicated, but there is preponderance in the use of resources to support vulnerable consumers. Unfortunately, in the case of steam for heating in Romania - and there is an extremely deep crisis can occur in the thermal energy system if no major investment is made in the near future - the subsidy system is still used for price differences, which practically subsidises Gcal for all consumers who they are networked, not making a distinction between those on low incomes and those on medium and high incomes," External link

I've heard so much nonsense today from the Opposition. I did not wish to reply, because I considered the ratification of EURATOM to be more important, but I cannot hold back. The Commission does not give us homework, it does not urge us. There are certain matters here related to the fact that Romania is under a procedure of excessive deficit, which was initiated as a result of 2019's deficit and that there is a plan of gradual recovery within the accepted deficit through the EU treaty of 3% of the GDP and the European Commission is preoccupied, with the start of utilizing loans that are being calculated, adding to the public deficit and the public debt, for that recovery plan below 3% not to be affected. I will give you an example: they are interested in the sustainability of public wages," External link

You can see, we reckon we are spending over 2 billion euros on seeds, but we have the capacity to develop in this field. Our goal is to encourage everything that can be done in Romania to be done in Romania. And we do not have to do anything in Romania in terms of seeds; first of all we have to preserve what we have in a gene bank, and later to develop a capitalisation system, so as to allow the Romanian producers to be able to purchase certified Romanian seeds," External link

It is very clear now that these decisions have had a favorable impact on the lives of Romanian citizens. Since the moment we became members of the European Union, Romania has been steadily moving forward in all respects and the lives of Romanians have been better and better. It is very clear that the European Union is in a period of changes and challenges. There are many things we should think about, because there are many enemies outside Europe and often inside Europe, who do not feel very well in the European concept and try to obtain various advantages, economic and political gains without taking into account the European Union. European institutions need to be closer to the people," External link

Ludovic Orban told : "The decision on the nomination for Prime Minister belonged to the coalition, I would even say that USR-PLUS was partial for my colleague and friend Florin Citu's taking over as Prime Minister. One cannot replace the Prime Minister just because the sacking of an evidently poorly performing minister doesn't sit well with a coalition party. (...)

Ludovic Orban said ( about Vlad Voiculescu ) : "Every minister must be aware that before attacking their Premier, they must write their resignation. Anyway, they must know that they will be sent home, just like Voiculescu. In no democratic country in the world does a minister allow themselves to attack the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister is the leader of the government. The moment you attack the Prime Minister, you no longer belong in the governing lineup. I therefore warn the ministers that this is not a whim. It is practically the Prime Minister's obligation to remove from office any minister who attacks the Premier," External link

roumanie-en Sunday, April 18, 2021 9:33:00 PM EAT

Ludovic Orban said : "I took note of Prime Minister Florin Citu's decision to remove the Minister of Health from office. As I said Monday after the coalition's sitting, it is not only the right, but also the prime minister's obligation to ensure the proper functioning of the Government and to intervene when necessary, in order to ensure good governance, the implementation of the governing programme and the service of the public interest even by changing a minister. I say it upfront that for the PNL there is no other political solution of government than the current governing coalition and that, from our point of view, this decision of Prime Minister Florin Citu is a decision that has nothing to do with our firm commitment to maintaining the current governing coalition. It is strictly a decision that aims to appoint at the Ministry of Health, one of the most important ministries in the structure of the Government, all the more so since we are in a third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the USR PLUS themselves to appoint a minister who will responsibly manage the field and who has the capacity to fight effectively for increasing the quality of the medical act and for the fight against the pandemic," External link

Today we are present on World Heritage lists with 8 sites and cultural-historical and natural ensembles and with 7 traditions inscribed on the Intangible Cultural Heritage list. It is the result of the work of specialists who have researched and produced the complex documentation needed in the nomination process and it is also the result of the involvement of local communities.

Ludovic Orban said ( about Vlad Voiculescu ) : "As for the matter regarding Mr. Voiculescu, I told the colleagues from USR PLUS very clearly that the exclusive political responsibility for keeping minister Voiculescu belongs to the party that supports him, but as regards us, we are deeply worried about the way the Ministry of Health is being managed, and take notice, the Ministry of Health is one of the most tried Ministries during the time of the pandemic and the conditions that we are facing with this third pandemic wave, that our exigency towards the way the the Ministry is being run is stretched thin, and also (...) we very clearly support the Prime Minister's right, that when he considers that a minister is affecting the smooth operation of the Government, he is not carrying his task and is not putting the governing program into practice and is generating situations which can jeopardize the operation of the Government, to propose to change that minister," External link

Ludovic Orban said : "As long as you derive income from various activities, as long as you are an economically active person, my opinion is that taxes and contributions must be paid, regardless of age, especially because the bill that is being debated and in procedure for being adopted by the government provides for the possibility of gainful employment over the age of 65, the retirement age, up to the age of 70, as a right. If someone asks to continue gainful employment after reaching the age of retirement, that is a personal decision and rather a right. As such, I do not see why they should stop paying the pension contributions. In principle, it is very important that the tax system be based on very clear principles; discriminatory taxation must be reduced as much as possible, equal treatment of the citizens must be secured from a fiscal point of view," External link

I do not comment a comment. With respect to the calculation of the incidence rate, it was known during the entire time, an application have been developed with the support of the STS (Special Telecommunications Service), called Coronaforms, through which application the whole process became transparent and known.

Ludovic Orban said ( about Commission ) : "Today's discussion was an extremely important one because it focused on fundamental issues concerning the future of the European Union; in particular we discussed the multiannual financial framework, the EU budget for 2021-2027 and we also had a discussion on the European Union's economic recovery plan and mainly the composition of the National Resilience and Recovery Plan. In our discussions, we emphasised that we will support the European Commission and our position will be support for the adoption as soon as possible of all the necessary regulation so that both the EU budget, multiannual financial framework may pass very shortly and also all the details of the Economic Recovery Programme, which was adopted by the European Council," External link

Ludovic Orban said ( about Commission ) : "We believe that a close dialogue and co-operation between the European Commission and the governments of the European countries, the government I lead, is extremely important because all the opportunities that have arisen from European decisions, both those concerning the EU budget and those related to the Recovery and Resilience Facility can generate rapid economic recovery at European level, certainly by taking into account the priorities set by the commission, related to smart Europe, related to serious investments in innovation, research and development, smart digititalisation solutions, as well as the priority of a green Europe with the achievement of the objectives that are set in the regulations adopted at European level," External link

Ludovic Orban said : "It is my understanding that you already had discussions with representatives of family doctors with regard to epidemiological inquiries. We are waiting to see some results, because we need family doctors to get involved at various stages of the process. We must not get at the point where the health assessment capacity is blocked. Symptomless Covid positives, those who do not obviously need a health assessment don't necessarily have to go to the hospital, the family doctor or a doctor from the Public Health Directorate can do this. We cannot crowd hospitals with people who don't need these services, while letting people who may need hospital care to wait," External link

Ludovic Orban said : "Obviously, we need to increase the treatment capacity in intensive care units and more seriously put to work those intermediary areas.

Ludovic Orban said : "We are further pursuing a clear objective: to increase the testing capacity, and we have discussed the necessary measures. Let there be no obstruction, at exudate collecting either. Careful here, the regulation needs to be fine-tuned for the 112 emergency line not to be overwhelmed by people who are not real emergencies and thus reduce the response capacity of the ambulance service. Here we will have to find a solution to reduce non-emergency calls to 112, by increasing the responsiveness of Public Health Directorates. Where needed, enter partnerships with private companies that specialize in such activities, including call centers, to increase responsiveness. Digitization is again very important so that we can streamline all the processes," External link

Ludovic Orban said : "The political decision exists both with regard to Remdesivir and with regard to Favipiravir, the problem is that there must exist companies that have the capacity to introduce in the production and especially to have fulfilled the legal conditions in order to be able to produce and sell this drug on the market. (...) I know for a fact that there is a company that could within a reasonable time introduce Favipiravir into production. All these treatments are off-label treatments, there are no definite treatments that you know 100 pct that they give (n.r. - results). Different treatments are being tested, for example in Matei Bals antibody treatment (...) and in Timisoara is tested. All over the world, not only with us, they do off-label treatments.

Ludovic Orban said : "In my opinion, the mandate of the current Parliament expires on 20 December and, taking into account the structure of the current Parliament, which is far from reflecting the current options of the population, reflects the options of 2016 that have no connection with today's options, the current Parliament, the sooner the mandate ends, the better for Romania. Romania needs a Parliament that is a true mirror of the needs and aspirations of Romanians. Any attempt to extend the mandate of the current Parliament will generate negative consequences for Romania, because the current Parliament is dominated by a PSD that is equally retrograde, equally broken by economic realities and equally inclined to do harm to Romania," External link

Ludovic Orban ( about Ludovic Orban ) : "Sunt conştient de faptul că, odată înscris în lupta pentru un nou mandat de preşedinte al Partidului Naţional Liberal, odată cu acest mandat, trebuie să iau în calcul şi candidatura la Preşedinţia României, pentru că preşedintele Partidului Naţional Liberal va trebui să intre în lupta pentru alegerile prezidenţiale din 2024. Sigur, pe de altă parte, sunt un om care am în vedere toate alternativele, în politică e bine să ai o gândire strategică”, (Kanal D, 24 martie). Intenția liderului PNL de a candida la alegerile prezidențiale din 2024 i-a nemulțumit pe unii lideri care consideră că Orban nu poate aduce o victorie partidului. În plus, lui Orban i se reproșează faptul că a condus partidul discreționar, fără a permite accesul la decizii liderilor din Biroul Politic. " External link

Marcel Ciolacu told ( about Ludovic Orban ) : "One of the things I am taking issue with Orban now is that he lacks the ability to make the difference between November last year, when he came with the first government - although his second ruling line-up was actually the same - and the challenges that came after March with this pandemic, his inability to change according to the Romanians' needs and priorities. You simply cannot carry on with no reshuffle, with the same people who kept us locked up in our homes for 60 days; 60 days on, the hospitals are still unprepared, we keep the schools closed for 6 months, open them because we have local elections and then we close them again. There is no prevention, there is no vision, more than that, we have moved away from everything that is happening in Europe, from the decisions that are taken in Europe, where, for example, schools remained open; schools stayed open even during wartime, no one has allowed himself to do this until now," External link

Marcel Ciolacu told ( about Ludovic Orban ) : "Every Romanian has understood why Ludovic Orban and his incompetent government do not make the budget public. If they stay in power, they will increase the VAT and sell everything that's left valuable in the state's assets, all the profitable Romanian companies. They will do the only thing they know - cut wages and axe jobs. I am sure that the IMF will be here in January if this inept and visionless government remains in office," External link

Gabriela Firea stated ( about Ludovic Orban ) : "Today, in the session of the National Political Committee we took the decision to make all the necessary demarches to call Prime Minister Ludovic Orban to Parliament with a report regarding the situation of the budget for next year. I don't understand why it's not uploaded in decisional transparency and in public transparency the draft budget for next year. If there is nothing to hide, if all is fair towards Romanians, why is the budget for next year not published, why is there not a press conference at the government level so that Romanians find out what are the concrete intentions of the Government regarding the VAT, for example. There are economic analysts, also economic consultants who in this period are conducting all sorts of calculations and schemes of how the Romanian economy will evolve the moment VAT increases," External link

Gabriela Firea said ( about Ludovic Orban ) : "To what extent can we believe these promises so long as the Government also promised to respect the law regarding pensions, that it will double (children, ed. n.) allowances, that it will increase the salaries of teachers. Unfortunately, they have not kept their word, so it's not only us but firstly the citizens who don't take their word and can't trust these statements that are, I would say, even electoral, of the government who's promising milk and honey, but is not doing a minimum gesture of respect towards Romanians, namely to publish the budget for next year so everyone sees what the financing sources are, what are the expenses proposed, what's the situation with taxes and tariffs. We are announcing now, even before the presence of Prime Minister Orban in Parliament, that the PSD will not agree in any way with the increase of the VAT. This tax, once raised, will affect Romanians with low and average incomes, meaning those who are right now affected by the measures of this incompetent Government. It's totally unfair and unjust to strike again, in this period, the Romanians with low and average incomes," External link
