Ludovic Orban said ( about Liberal Parti ) : "I am not in the habit of arguing with my party colleagues in public. As chairman of the National Liberal Party, my obligation is to ensure party cohesion, my obligation is to participate in ensuring unity and efficiency in the coalition government, and I believe that Romanian citizens expect solutions from us to solve problems; they expect from us an efficient organisation in the battle with the pandemic, and they also expect from us a rapid resumption of economic growth that will allow an increase of the quality of life and the standards of living for every Romanian. Whatever I have to discuss I do so inside PNL (...) The PNL chairman is elected by the congress. The PNL had a congress convention in June 2017 and will have a congress convention again later this year. Until that convention, I am the chairman. If I decide to run for a new term, I will announce that publicly," External link

Romania went in the opposite direction to the European Union in terms of the railway. The European Union, in its transport development strategy, considers rail transport as a priority transport for many reasons. (...) In recent years, massive investments have been made in Europe, rapid railway networks have been developed, railway sections have been modernised, transport development by rail has experienced unprecedented speed. Romania must join the European line, strategy in the railway sector and, for us, in the next four years, the railway will be a priority - investments in the modernisation of the railway infrastructure.

Ludovic Orban said : "I can't wait for the team led by Nicusor Dan to reach the Capital City Hall and at Dirstrict 4 - the team led by Simona Spataru, so that together we can redirect the land to the Capital City Hall, so that we can be sure that no apartment buildings are built there or other funny businesses conceived by the mafia behind PSD [the Social Democratic Party], but there will really be an oasis there and a green lung of Bucharest and a high point of attraction for any tourist who comes to Bucharest. The Vacaresti Delta is a place where I am convinced that through a project competition, in which to call landscape architects, even internationally, we can generate a sensational project, that could become an additional point of attraction in Bucharest," External link

I am sending a clear message that if they come to Romania and they imagine that this is the way they will have works in Romania on the path they've started they will do nothing but turn the Government, the institutions and especially the population hostile, which is why in the Government, because the law allows it, we have adopted a memorandum by which we have decided to sign the contract, after the rejection of the appeal with the National Council for Solving Complaints. From a legal point of view, we have this right and the contract for design and construction will be signed with the consortium that was declared the winner. I am very attached to this project. It's a very useful project for Pitesti, for Arges County, for Craiova, for Dolj County," External link

If you accumulate a backlog or you have gaps in the educational process, it may affect your understanding in the coming years of school. We will have to clearly communicate this message. It's extremely important for children to follow the school process, regardless how it is done, in classes or online," External link

Only two countries have a smaller contraction than Romania's in the first half of the year. We have a contraction of 3.9 per cent. And in terms of deficits too, Romania is among the countries with the lowest increase in the budget deficit. (...) Romania has not been downgraded by the rating agencies due to the credibility of the government that I lead and due to the fact that we have assumed balanced commitments in terms of maintaining economic balances and controlling the deficit and public spending, and Romania has very good prospects for economic recovery," External link

(...) The law will allow the hiring of teaching staff where diseases will occur, but I insist a lot on following the rules. In my opinion, children are safer at school because they are under the supervision of a teacher, wearing masks, they are somewhat at a physical distance, while children on holiday, especially children who have been left unattended in sports fields, in parks, had a much bigger interaction than the interaction that will be at school," External link

Bucharest needs a rapid extension of the Bucharest metro networks, knowing that underground transport is a fast, safe transport that lessens surface traffic and together we will extend the subway with a speed that has not existed in previous period. Bucharest needs to solve the problems of black holes, such as the Radio House, Vacaresti Lake, the urban development that is at a standstill for decades which is in the center of Bucharest behind the National Library and other places which are, in fact, a stain on the cheek of Bucharest and which the PSD [Social Democratic Party] administrations ignored completely.

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

I want to convey to Mr. Orban that a PSD government in 2020 would have looked much better than the failed PNL government. I assure him that the Romanians would not have lived today with the fear of unemployment, that the pensioners would have seen their pensions increased by 40% (as we promised in the National Pact for the Welfare of Romanians), that all the children would have already had their allowances doubled, and Romania's budget would have been properly managed in a pandemic, not robbed, as it is today" External link

Whatever I have to discuss I do so inside PNL (...) The PNL chairman is elected by the congress.

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

Marcel Ciolacu told ( about Ludovic Orban ) : "No county seat municipality run by a PSD mayor has received any money. We are not talking about Orban's money, we are not talking about President Iohannis' money or about the normal Romania that President Iohannis promised us. We are talking about our money - both mine, and yours, which is temporarily managed by the Prime Minister of Romania - which, instead of directing it to the real problems of Romanians and the priorities of Romanians, he used to buy mayors or parliamentarians," External link

Lucian Bode said ( about Ludovic Orban ) : "As I am sure you know, investments in transport infrastructure in the last 10 months have become a priority for the Orban Government. We believe that the country's development can only be achieved by boosting investments, by moving from that economic, toxic model promoted by the left-wing, based on consumption, to an economic model based on the stimulation of investments. This is the only way we can restart the engines of the economy, this is the only way we can have economic development, this is the only way we can increase the number of jobs and the well-being of Romanians," External link

Viorica Dăncilă wrote ( about Ludovic Orban ) : "Because he cannot campaign on the achievements of the liberal government (which are zero), Prime Minister Ludovic Orban is still fighting the PSD, almost a year after taking power. I want to convey to Mr. Orban that a PSD government in 2020 would have looked much better than the failed PNL government. I assure him that the Romanians would not have lived today with the fear of unemployment, that the pensioners would have seen their pensions increased by 40% (as we promised in the National Pact for the Welfare of Romanians), that all the children would have already had their allowances doubled, and Romania's budget would have been properly managed in a pandemic, not robbed, as it is today" External link
