Raluca Turcan wrote ( about Adina Vălean ) : "I discussed with Adina Valean, the European commissioner for transport, the protection of Romanian drivers who want to work abroad, both in terms of employment conditions and the improvement of safety conditions. There are 150,000 Romanians who work as lorry drivers on the roads elsewhere in Europe and their rights as employees must be observed as provided for in the national legislation," External link

Raluca Turcan wrote ( about Elisa Ferreira ) : "I know that the dialogues of the Romanian authorities with the European institutions often seem bureaucratic exercises, of little immediate interest in 'real life', but the discussion we had today (Tuesday) with Elisa Ferreira, European Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms, addressed not only the objectives, stages and planning of the ministry's processes from the perspective of accessing European funding programmes, but also the difficulties encountered in the process of reforming public systems and the immediate impact of these reforms on people. We have also addressed the issue of vulnerable people and the improvement of social services in Romania, but also the challenges that the post-pandemic transition raises in the field of occupation," External link

Raluca Turcan said ( about Commission ) : "We have also presented at length the investment plans for social infrastructure for children and people with disabilities undertaken by the PNRR, with a financing of EUR 100 million. An important part of our discussion has also been about how we will use European funds to support social assistance reform, i.e. the development of integrated services to actually support vulnerable groups. An example of this is the commitment that Romania has made to implement the guarantee for children, as recommended by the Commission, which will ensure access to healthcare, education, care, decent housing or adequate nutrition," External link

Raluca Turcan told : "There is a serious amount of disinformation circulating in the public space (...). What is for certain is that under the National Recovery and Resilience Plan we have undertaken to reform this system, because it is fraught with inequalities that result in different retirement conditions depending on the year of retirement. There are huge gaps between the minimum social pension and the highest pension drawn in the public system. Millions of lei are paid every year for pension recalculation lawsuits which the pensioners win against the state. More than that, there is a time bomb ticking in the Romanian pension system, which if we don't defuse, at some point risks sending the purchasing power of the current average pension of 1,500 lei plummeting to the equivalent of 500 lei," External link

roumanie-en Friday, May 28, 2021 10:43:00 PM EAT

Raluca Turcan said : "The current deficit of the pension budget is 16.7 billion lei, which means that substantial amounts are transferred annually from the state budget to the pension budget and if we don't take action, this amount will keep growing. I provided you with these figures to make it clear why we are talking about reform. (...) This reform plan has a technical component through which five million pension files are digitized, millions of data are being transferred from an outdated electronic format into modern digital files. We are also talking about new retirement legislation to do away with these issues," External link

Raluca Turcan said : "First of all, I would like to clarify some information that has appeared in the public space. In the PNRR [the National Recovery and Resilience Plan] there are two major reform components - on pensions and the pay system in the public system. These reforms are being worked on at the Ministry against the clock and we have different versions. For both components of the reform, after the Ministry comes up with its own vision, the result of the social dialogue, we will also call on specialized consultancy, so that the final version responds to some principles that we have assumed," External link

roumanie-en Tuesday, May 25, 2021 10:03:00 PM EAT

Raluca Turcan added : "It seems natural to us, since we keep talking about reform, then two fundamental public systems should removed from decision makers' hands and have a predictable calculation system, including as a weighted share in GDP. These are the components we are talking about and based on which we are relaying all the data to Brussels. We reject any kind of speculations and especially the amateurism of politicians who either use working documents or follow the old disinformation technique and simply try to instil a state of tension among the people, essentially those most affected and who are deserving of these reforms," External link

Raluca Turcan added : "Regarding the contribution period, it is absurd to say or someone to go out in the public space and spread the idea of the increase of the 15-year minimum contribution period, given that now the maximum contribution period is 35 years. So, there are some whoppers that you wonder how much more they can roll them the public space," External link

Raluca Turcan pointed out : "People will no longer need to come up to the counter to submit their applications for social assistance and social services benefits, as paper files will become electronic files and can be viewed online at any time. Moreover, the implementation of the Services Hub means the creation of an interconnection platform between the ministry and its subordinate institutions, thus laying the foundations for a modern and efficient public administration, which has the role of increasing the quality of electronic services offered to citizens and reducing the time for solving requests," External link

roumanie-en Tuesday, April 27, 2021 10:29:00 PM EAT

Raluca Turcan concluded : "The new platform will provide the necessary tools for cross-checking of data, providing mechanisms for prevention, automatic reporting of suspected fraud and providing accurate data. At the same time, citizens and businesses will be able to find out in real time, at submission time, which is the specific status of the application (if they previously qualified, if there are overlaps with other benefits, conditions related to legal rights, etc.). The services hub also secures interoperability of information systems at a national and European level (with similar systems at European level, with European registers), so as to ensure a uniform management of the information on the beneficiaries of social security rights granted from public funds. This is so far the most important digital transformation project started at the level of the Ministry of Labour. We intend to attract European funds for the digitalisation of all the bodies related to the Ministry of Labour," External link

Raluca Turcan mentioned : "I would like to dismantle some fake news that has been spreading in the last hours. Nobody has planned to abolish the bonuses," External link

roumanie-en Thursday, February 18, 2021 10:48:00 PM EAT

Raluca Turcan declared : "We also want the salaries being paid to take much more into account the wage side than the bonus side, and when someone negotiates an income and establishes an income, including in the public system, to be attracted by the salary in the first place and less by the addition of bonuses to the salary. That is why I am also trying to explain a mathematical reasoning. Even if we bring changes to the bonuses, we do not intend to reduce the income, but on the contrary, the salaries should be somewhat equalized and they should be supplemented by bonuses only on the basis of very clear principles," External link

Raluca Turcan said : "Regarding the Social Reference Index, which has not grown since 2015, we can say that there is a decision to raise this Social Reference Index, but this growth must not take place based on an electoral key, like the draft was voted in Parliament, but rather following a real debate and I will propose this to the Cabinet members as soon as we need to speak out on this matter" External link

Raluca Turcan wrote : "The people of Sibiu said today, again, that the PNL is the party they trust the most. (...) The PNL's mission in the public interest has never been easy, because it has always been taken seriously. We will do the same now and we will build, as the people of Sibiu ask us, a government without PSD! I am confident that the reality will confirm the Romanians' desire to have an honest, stable and predictable government. However, the PNL won this election by a landslide! We are the party in which the inhabitants have the greatest confidence!," External link

Raluca Turcan said : "I voted more convinced than ever that this is a unique moment in the history of recent Romania and that can mark the lives of Romania and Romanians. (...) This vote can lead us to Europe, can give us development, strong and functional public institutions. Today's vote can lead us to a four-year period of governmental stability in which to build. I voted for a European Romania and for a developed Romania and I urge all those who want to live in a developed Romania to go to the polls and urge others to go to the polls as well. If you allow me, from here, from Sibiu, I would urge all Romanians to go to the polls and, if they value democracy, to understand that no matter what they write on Facebook, what they believe inside their soul, what they talk to their friends, it can't be achieved unless they go to the polls. Democracy is defended by vote and today I would like Romanians to understand this and choose the direction in which they want to go. The vote is a safe one and I have verified that and all can check that in the voting booth " External link

Raluca Turcan wrote ( about Lucian Bode ) : "The Sibiu-Boita section of the Sibiu-Pitesti motorway has kept up a construction pace that makes me believe that we can make good on the promises of the first paved sections in 2021, launched at my previous visit. The advance level of investment (6-8%) is added confirmation. Together with Minister of Transport Lucian Bode and together with Chair of the Sibiu County Council Daniela Cimpean, and Prefect Mircea Cretu, we received assurances today, on a special day to the Romanian infrastructure, regarding the builder's ability to be on schedule and even ahead of it with the works. Sibiu-Boita is the first section of the Sibiu-Pitesti motorway and it is becoming representative of the infrastructure sites that the government has unblocked after years of their projects being forgotten in drawers or paraded on television," External link

Raluca Turcan said ( about The Deputy ) : "A censure motion has several stages and it seems normal to me that a political party like the ruling PNL should use all the constitutional instruments, because that is why they were provided for. Even checking the quorum before voting on a motion is a constitutional lever to check whether a motion has been tabled in the real way to bring down the government. (...) Maybe there were reasons related to the internal elections in PSD. The reality is that the motion was tabled at the time of Mr. Ciolacu's election. It gave him some strength in the internal elections, and now he did not have a quorum, so there is no majority to overthrow this Government at the moment. Which is a good thing, because we can continue to do our job. We will see what happens along the way. I hear all sorts of speculations that they are going to file another motion (...) but the ones who lose the most are the people, because they expect efficiency, effectiveness in the Government, ordinances, government decisions, efficiency in Parliament, what the Government sends to Parliament to be debated very quickly, and not to tease each other and present to the public this face that certainly is not liked by anyone in Romanian politics," External link

Raluca Turcan said : "The National Flag is all that means homeland, freedom and sovereignty. It means sacrifice, but also hope. It marks both the past and the present, guides the future, compels to responsibility and to an unshakable determination. The National Flag contains the enthusiasm that instilled in the consciousness of Romanians the ideals of pride, love of country, the desire for unity and independence. It is the landmark of all Romanians, of the heroes of the past and of the heroes of tomorrow, of children in Romania and of Romanian communities everywhere. The tricolour has witnessed the big events in the history of the Romanian nation," External link

Raluca Turcan said ( about The Deputy ) : "I saw, at the end of the week, events in the country, images in which the Romanians, out of the desire to make the most of the new relaxation measures and to make up for the time they spent in isolation, no longer take into account these restrictions that must become a constant in our lives in the next period of time. Our life has changed, it is no longer the same. The virus is in the community, in society we will have to educate ourselves so that the relationship between individual effort and effort of institutions should further remain balanced. So far we have had a good management, both from the perspective of the authorities in crisis management, but also from the perspective of the people," External link

We want relaxation, because this relaxation has a positive impact on social life and the resumption of economic activity, but relaxation must be accompanied by a change in people's behavior, which simply must be learned and become normal practice," External link

Raluca Turcan wrote : "Today, together with the Minister of Education, Monica Anisie, we've had a chance to consult with some civil society organisations which are implementing an educational programme for children coming from the disadvantaged environments. We have tried to find out how we can help these children to have access to good quality education in increasing numbers. In the past couple of months, civil society got involved in an exemplary manner in supporting the state authorities to help those among us who are the most vulnerable. This involvement proved that the state was not alone in its effort to not leave these children behind," External link

Raluca Turcan said : "The Peles Museum is a heritage piece for Romanian culture. This piece of exceptional value deserves to be a magnet for everything that means returning to the ordinary cultural life of Romania. It has the highest income from ticket receipts, at the same time it is at the top of visitors among museums in Romania and we want it to once again re-open to become a centre of tourist attraction for Sinaia and a reason to rekindle (...) the appetite for cultural life throughout the country," External link

Raluca Turcan told : "We expect the PSD to hit us with blockages, harassment and lack of responsibility in front of the Romanians' expectations. There is a high probability that, following PSD's internal political game, the quorum required to reject the Orban Government in the Parliament plenary and take the first step towards early elections won't be met. This is exclusively the outcome of PSD's political calculations, as they want to extend the Romanians' state of dissatisfaction, because the necessary responsibility for moving towards early elections cannot be mustered in Parliament," External link

(...) We have won the European, presidential and government elections in Romania. We are at a moment of poise in which I propose that each one of you should accept these decisions that the PNL has taken through its government and that show in fact that we are able to govern Romania at least four years from now on," External link

There will also be the repeal of Ordinance 51, the one related to the removal of school transport from the province of public interest services; this way the Government will solve a first part of the free transport of pupils, namely the inclusion of the school commute as a public service. (...) The third law that the Government notifies Parliament about taking responsibility relates to public spending caps, so that by the end of the year we can come up within the legal framework with the 2020 national budget, " External link

Raluca Turcan said : "With regard to this step of taking responsibility, I want to sound the alarm. We are asking PSD not to obstruct the procedure of taking responsibility before Parliament, because we know very well that PSD intends to play the destiny for Romanians at Russian roulette and it is even capable of postponing the 2020 budget, although it is for the first time, after the PSD government, when we have a timely unveiled budget so that local administrations on January 1 may come up with local budgets and let the development of the country take away.

We want the year 2020 to see us ready with the budget so that the local authorities deprived by what has happened in the last three years, can build their local budgets, as the activity of the local authorities has a huge role in creating the economic growth we need so much at national level," External link

Raluca Turcan said : "This budget is signed by a prime minister who has failed all the important exams of education - early and late admission to high school exams and admission to college. The great regress of the Romanian society is that such a person subsequently became MEP and prime minister of Romania (...) The Social Democratic Party (PSD) is at rule, holds the speakership of the chamber and the chairmanships of the important parliamentary committees, and it also has Mr Valcov, the great guru of budgets, finance and cemeteries, and with all these advantages, it has failed to make up a budget that is coherent and debated under the best legal circumstances. Three months overdue, we have obtained an improvised, lying budget that is disconnected from all the big interests of Romania. It is questionable from a constitutional point of view. It mirrors perfectly [PM] Viorica Vasilica Dancila - as it is failing all the tests that have anything to do with the real priorities of the Romanian society (...) It is a budget of those who are at fault with the Criminal Code and more benevolent to criminal offenders than to honest Romanians. This Dragnea&Valcov budget is patched, praised, contradicted, and amended in the pure style of political mobsters. It is the vitamin D budget, instead of a budget to treat all the chronic illnesses triggered by the PSD governance. It is a budget promoted through rough and painful machinations. You are cynically placing in the balance the four million children of Romania against the bodies that are essential to our safety. (...) There are many reasons why PNL will not vote for this budget," External link

Raluca Turcan said : "The construction, promotion and support of a draft budget have never been so low ... (...) It is a budget based on robbery, at the price of destroying the sectors that are heavy supporters of the budget," External link

Raluca Turcan said ( about Liviu Dragnea ) : "The ordinance of Dragnea’s and Valcov’s meanness is robbing and demonising Romanian and foreign companies, state-run companies, the entire local administration and banks while depriving the younger generation of their pensions. That is what you have built your budget on. You are proceeding like Chavez-Maduro, who have led a country with vast riches, Venezuela, to despondency and bankruptcy. Let’s hope Romania will not go bankrupt under your rule," External link

Raluca Turcan said ( about Ecaterina Andronescu ) : "Do you know what the real threats are? The fact that you are mishandling the Romanian healthcare system, the fact that you have brutally rejected the PNL proposals to improve the healthcare infrastructure (...) Of eight regional hospitals, you have reached three, which will not be built in the end; your raising the doctors’ pay is in vain because infrastructure is still in collapse. Education is an open wound and unfortunately is the PSD’s specialty since you have placed Mrs Ecaterina Andronescu again at the helm of the education ministry, and we know very well how she managed to mess up generations of children and young people," External link

Raluca Turcan spune : "OUG nr.114/2017, ordonanța lăcomiei Guvernului Dragnea-Dăncilă-Vâlcov-Teodorovici a produs efecte dezastruoase în toată economia, chiar din primele 2 săptămâni ale anului: cursul Euro a ajuns la cel mai mare nivel din istorie, apăsând direct pe buzunarele românilor; sistemul energetic este aproape în colaps termocentralele au rămas fără cărbuni și importăm curent electric la prețuri uriașe; băncile străine scot activele din tara ca să nu fie taxate suplimentar, iar băncile românești, care n-au refugiu, sunt puse în genunchi și nevoite sa restrângă creditarea sau sa o scumpească; operatorii de comunicații abandonează toate investițiile planificate în acest an trecerea la 5G este în pericol" External link

Raluca Turcan spune ( about Sorin Grindeanu ) : "Toader, cel pentru care pare că a fi ministru al Justiţiei înseamnă a fi un fel de Pilat, era ministru în Guvernul Grindeanu începând din 23 februarie 2017. Adevărat, Guvernul Grindeanu a adoptat proiectul în ianuarie 2017. Dar Toader era deja ministru când proiectul a fost discutat în Senat (adoptat pe 13 martie) şi ulterior la Camera Deputaţilor (adoptat pe 9 mai 2017). Toader avea, aşadar, obligaţia să apere proiectul adoptat de Guvernul Grindeanu şi să se opună modificărilor care au condus azi la consecinţe grave pentru siguranţa cetăţeanului. Din ce se auzea la acel moment, Toader a interzis reprezentanţilor MJ să meargă în Parlament să apere proiectul. Ar fi interesant de văzut dacă cineva din Ministerul Justiţiei a participat la vreo lucrare sau şedinţă a vreunei comisii din vreo Cameră, în procesul de adoptare a legi. Eu ştiu că nu. A da vina pe guvernul tehnocrat este numai o altă mârşăvie din lunga listă pe care istoria o va reţine în dreptul lui Toader" External link

Raluca Turcan says ( about Liberal Parti ) : "A hoax of PSD - ALDE (Social Democrat Party - Alliance of Liberals and Democrats, major and minor at rule, ed. n.) never comes alone. After new taxes were set to have the investors leave our country and place us in economic stalemate, the Valcov - Dragnea - Dancila OUG (gov't emergency ordinance, ed. n.) dooms the education as well to underfunding. In 2019 - 2021 the 6pct of the GDP promised in all electoral campaigns will not be allocated, even if guaranteed through all protocols signed by the gov't with the trade unions and well-inked in the Education Law at Art. 8. All promises get a postponement!" External link

Dragnea-Dancila Government, Romania's shame.' The motion of no confidence is the most important tool the opposition parties have at their disposal to sanction a Govenrmnet that does not respect its governing programme, which is incompetent and malicious. We are announcing today this motion of no confidence and we will table it so that we can thwart a new abusive plan that PSD and ALDE [Alliance of Liberals and Democrats, minor at rule, ed.n.] have, to cast ridicule on this motion, to group the deadlines so that the final vote be cast next Monday, hoping that they will thus be cleared to steal for the amnesty and pardoning ordinance," External link

Raluca Turcan wrote ( about Adina Vălean ) : "I discussed with Adina Valean, the European commissioner for transport, the protection of Romanian drivers who want to work abroad, both in terms of employment conditions and the improvement of safety conditions. There are 150,000 Romanians who work as lorry drivers on the roads elsewhere in Europe and their rights as employees must be observed as provided for in the national legislation," External link

Raluca Turcan wrote ( about Elisa Ferreira ) : "I know that the dialogues of the Romanian authorities with the European institutions often seem bureaucratic exercises, of little immediate interest in 'real life', but the discussion we had today (Tuesday) with Elisa Ferreira, European Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms, addressed not only the objectives, stages and planning of the ministry's processes from the perspective of accessing European funding programmes, but also the difficulties encountered in the process of reforming public systems and the immediate impact of these reforms on people. We have also addressed the issue of vulnerable people and the improvement of social services in Romania, but also the challenges that the post-pandemic transition raises in the field of occupation," External link

Raluca Turcan said ( about Commission ) : "We have also presented at length the investment plans for social infrastructure for children and people with disabilities undertaken by the PNRR, with a financing of EUR 100 million. An important part of our discussion has also been about how we will use European funds to support social assistance reform, i.e. the development of integrated services to actually support vulnerable groups. An example of this is the commitment that Romania has made to implement the guarantee for children, as recommended by the Commission, which will ensure access to healthcare, education, care, decent housing or adequate nutrition," External link

roumanie-en Wednesday, June 16, 2021 10:01:00 PM EAT

roumanie-en Wednesday, June 16, 2021 10:01:00 PM EAT

Raluca Turcan told : "There is a serious amount of disinformation circulating in the public space (...). What is for certain is that under the National Recovery and Resilience Plan we have undertaken to reform this system, because it is fraught with inequalities that result in different retirement conditions depending on the year of retirement. There are huge gaps between the minimum social pension and the highest pension drawn in the public system. Millions of lei are paid every year for pension recalculation lawsuits which the pensioners win against the state. More than that, there is a time bomb ticking in the Romanian pension system, which if we don't defuse, at some point risks sending the purchasing power of the current average pension of 1,500 lei plummeting to the equivalent of 500 lei," External link

roumanie-en Friday, May 28, 2021 10:43:00 PM EAT

Raluca Turcan said : "The current deficit of the pension budget is 16.7 billion lei, which means that substantial amounts are transferred annually from the state budget to the pension budget and if we don't take action, this amount will keep growing. I provided you with these figures to make it clear why we are talking about reform. (...) This reform plan has a technical component through which five million pension files are digitized, millions of data are being transferred from an outdated electronic format into modern digital files. We are also talking about new retirement legislation to do away with these issues," External link

roumanie-en Friday, May 28, 2021 10:43:00 PM EAT

Raluca Turcan said : "First of all, I would like to clarify some information that has appeared in the public space. In the PNRR [the National Recovery and Resilience Plan] there are two major reform components - on pensions and the pay system in the public system. These reforms are being worked on at the Ministry against the clock and we have different versions. For both components of the reform, after the Ministry comes up with its own vision, the result of the social dialogue, we will also call on specialized consultancy, so that the final version responds to some principles that we have assumed," External link

roumanie-en Tuesday, May 25, 2021 10:03:00 PM EAT

Raluca Turcan added : "It seems natural to us, since we keep talking about reform, then two fundamental public systems should removed from decision makers' hands and have a predictable calculation system, including as a weighted share in GDP. These are the components we are talking about and based on which we are relaying all the data to Brussels. We reject any kind of speculations and especially the amateurism of politicians who either use working documents or follow the old disinformation technique and simply try to instil a state of tension among the people, essentially those most affected and who are deserving of these reforms," External link

Raluca Turcan added : "Regarding the contribution period, it is absurd to say or someone to go out in the public space and spread the idea of the increase of the 15-year minimum contribution period, given that now the maximum contribution period is 35 years. So, there are some whoppers that you wonder how much more they can roll them the public space," External link

roumanie-en Tuesday, May 25, 2021 10:03:00 PM EAT

Raluca Turcan pointed out : "People will no longer need to come up to the counter to submit their applications for social assistance and social services benefits, as paper files will become electronic files and can be viewed online at any time. Moreover, the implementation of the Services Hub means the creation of an interconnection platform between the ministry and its subordinate institutions, thus laying the foundations for a modern and efficient public administration, which has the role of increasing the quality of electronic services offered to citizens and reducing the time for solving requests," External link

roumanie-en Tuesday, April 27, 2021 10:29:00 PM EAT

Raluca Turcan concluded : "The new platform will provide the necessary tools for cross-checking of data, providing mechanisms for prevention, automatic reporting of suspected fraud and providing accurate data. At the same time, citizens and businesses will be able to find out in real time, at submission time, which is the specific status of the application (if they previously qualified, if there are overlaps with other benefits, conditions related to legal rights, etc.). The services hub also secures interoperability of information systems at a national and European level (with similar systems at European level, with European registers), so as to ensure a uniform management of the information on the beneficiaries of social security rights granted from public funds. This is so far the most important digital transformation project started at the level of the Ministry of Labour. We intend to attract European funds for the digitalisation of all the bodies related to the Ministry of Labour," External link

Raluca Turcan mentioned : "I would like to dismantle some fake news that has been spreading in the last hours. Nobody has planned to abolish the bonuses," External link

roumanie-en Thursday, February 18, 2021 10:48:00 PM EAT

Raluca Turcan declared : "We also want the salaries being paid to take much more into account the wage side than the bonus side, and when someone negotiates an income and establishes an income, including in the public system, to be attracted by the salary in the first place and less by the addition of bonuses to the salary. That is why I am also trying to explain a mathematical reasoning. Even if we bring changes to the bonuses, we do not intend to reduce the income, but on the contrary, the salaries should be somewhat equalized and they should be supplemented by bonuses only on the basis of very clear principles," External link

Raluca Turcan said : "Regarding the Social Reference Index, which has not grown since 2015, we can say that there is a decision to raise this Social Reference Index, but this growth must not take place based on an electoral key, like the draft was voted in Parliament, but rather following a real debate and I will propose this to the Cabinet members as soon as we need to speak out on this matter" External link

Raluca Turcan wrote : "The people of Sibiu said today, again, that the PNL is the party they trust the most. (...) The PNL's mission in the public interest has never been easy, because it has always been taken seriously. We will do the same now and we will build, as the people of Sibiu ask us, a government without PSD! I am confident that the reality will confirm the Romanians' desire to have an honest, stable and predictable government. However, the PNL won this election by a landslide! We are the party in which the inhabitants have the greatest confidence!," External link

Raluca Turcan said : "I voted more convinced than ever that this is a unique moment in the history of recent Romania and that can mark the lives of Romania and Romanians. (...) This vote can lead us to Europe, can give us development, strong and functional public institutions. Today's vote can lead us to a four-year period of governmental stability in which to build. I voted for a European Romania and for a developed Romania and I urge all those who want to live in a developed Romania to go to the polls and urge others to go to the polls as well. If you allow me, from here, from Sibiu, I would urge all Romanians to go to the polls and, if they value democracy, to understand that no matter what they write on Facebook, what they believe inside their soul, what they talk to their friends, it can't be achieved unless they go to the polls. Democracy is defended by vote and today I would like Romanians to understand this and choose the direction in which they want to go. The vote is a safe one and I have verified that and all can check that in the voting booth " External link

Raluca Turcan wrote ( about Lucian Bode ) : "The Sibiu-Boita section of the Sibiu-Pitesti motorway has kept up a construction pace that makes me believe that we can make good on the promises of the first paved sections in 2021, launched at my previous visit. The advance level of investment (6-8%) is added confirmation. Together with Minister of Transport Lucian Bode and together with Chair of the Sibiu County Council Daniela Cimpean, and Prefect Mircea Cretu, we received assurances today, on a special day to the Romanian infrastructure, regarding the builder's ability to be on schedule and even ahead of it with the works. Sibiu-Boita is the first section of the Sibiu-Pitesti motorway and it is becoming representative of the infrastructure sites that the government has unblocked after years of their projects being forgotten in drawers or paraded on television," External link

roumanie-en Friday, September 18, 2020 7:10:00 PM EAT

Raluca Turcan said ( about The Deputy ) : "A censure motion has several stages and it seems normal to me that a political party like the ruling PNL should use all the constitutional instruments, because that is why they were provided for. Even checking the quorum before voting on a motion is a constitutional lever to check whether a motion has been tabled in the real way to bring down the government. (...) Maybe there were reasons related to the internal elections in PSD. The reality is that the motion was tabled at the time of Mr. Ciolacu's election. It gave him some strength in the internal elections, and now he did not have a quorum, so there is no majority to overthrow this Government at the moment. Which is a good thing, because we can continue to do our job. We will see what happens along the way. I hear all sorts of speculations that they are going to file another motion (...) but the ones who lose the most are the people, because they expect efficiency, effectiveness in the Government, ordinances, government decisions, efficiency in Parliament, what the Government sends to Parliament to be debated very quickly, and not to tease each other and present to the public this face that certainly is not liked by anyone in Romanian politics," External link

Raluca Turcan said : "The National Flag is all that means homeland, freedom and sovereignty. It means sacrifice, but also hope. It marks both the past and the present, guides the future, compels to responsibility and to an unshakable determination. The National Flag contains the enthusiasm that instilled in the consciousness of Romanians the ideals of pride, love of country, the desire for unity and independence. It is the landmark of all Romanians, of the heroes of the past and of the heroes of tomorrow, of children in Romania and of Romanian communities everywhere. The tricolour has witnessed the big events in the history of the Romanian nation," External link

We thank them all. Respect and admiration!," External link

Raluca Turcan said ( about The Deputy ) : "I saw, at the end of the week, events in the country, images in which the Romanians, out of the desire to make the most of the new relaxation measures and to make up for the time they spent in isolation, no longer take into account these restrictions that must become a constant in our lives in the next period of time. Our life has changed, it is no longer the same. The virus is in the community, in society we will have to educate ourselves so that the relationship between individual effort and effort of institutions should further remain balanced. So far we have had a good management, both from the perspective of the authorities in crisis management, but also from the perspective of the people," External link

Raluca Turcan said : "I would like us not to think about returning to the state of emergency, and I said: This depends a lot on the effort the people are willing to make, in accordance with governmental decisions. We want relaxation, because this relaxation has a positive impact on social life and the resumption of economic activity, but relaxation must be accompanied by a change in people's behavior, which simply must be learned and become normal practice," External link

Raluca Turcan wrote : "Today, together with the Minister of Education, Monica Anisie, we've had a chance to consult with some civil society organisations which are implementing an educational programme for children coming from the disadvantaged environments. We have tried to find out how we can help these children to have access to good quality education in increasing numbers. In the past couple of months, civil society got involved in an exemplary manner in supporting the state authorities to help those among us who are the most vulnerable. This involvement proved that the state was not alone in its effort to not leave these children behind," External link

Raluca Turcan said : "The Peles Museum is a heritage piece for Romanian culture. This piece of exceptional value deserves to be a magnet for everything that means returning to the ordinary cultural life of Romania. It has the highest income from ticket receipts, at the same time it is at the top of visitors among museums in Romania and we want it to once again re-open to become a centre of tourist attraction for Sinaia and a reason to rekindle (...) the appetite for cultural life throughout the country," External link

Raluca Turcan told : "We expect the PSD to hit us with blockages, harassment and lack of responsibility in front of the Romanians' expectations. There is a high probability that, following PSD's internal political game, the quorum required to reject the Orban Government in the Parliament plenary and take the first step towards early elections won't be met. This is exclusively the outcome of PSD's political calculations, as they want to extend the Romanians' state of dissatisfaction, because the necessary responsibility for moving towards early elections cannot be mustered in Parliament," External link

roumanie-en Monday, February 24, 2020 10:27:00 AM EAT

Raluca Turcan told ( about Liberal Parti ) : "We have reached a political maturity that no other party in Romania has, not only have we defeated a dangerous opponent, the Social Democratic Party (PSD), but we have shown that we have the strength to come before the Romanians with solid opinions that we have thought through. (...) We have won the European, presidential and government elections in Romania. We are at a moment of poise in which I propose that each one of you should accept these decisions that the PNL has taken through its government and that show in fact that we are able to govern Romania at least four years from now on," External link

We will do everything in our power to find the financial resources and to increase the state allowances for children, " External link

Raluca Turcan said : "The PNL decided at the convention of the Executive Bureau to notify Parliament on Tuesday about taking responsibility for three bills: the justice legislation, the part regarding the extension of the early retirement of the magistrates, increasing the number of judges on panels in lower courts from two to three, job seniority for access to the National Institute of Magistracy. There will also be the repeal of Ordinance 51, the one related to the removal of school transport from the province of public interest services; this way the Government will solve a first part of the free transport of pupils, namely the inclusion of the school commute as a public service. (...) The third law that the Government notifies Parliament about taking responsibility relates to public spending caps, so that by the end of the year we can come up within the legal framework with the 2020 national budget, " External link

roumanie-en Tuesday, December 10, 2019 9:28:00 AM EAT

Raluca Turcan said : "With regard to this step of taking responsibility, I want to sound the alarm. We are asking PSD not to obstruct the procedure of taking responsibility before Parliament, because we know very well that PSD intends to play the destiny for Romanians at Russian roulette and it is even capable of postponing the 2020 budget, although it is for the first time, after the PSD government, when we have a timely unveiled budget so that local administrations on January 1 may come up with local budgets and let the development of the country take away. It is very important that Romania does not remain stuck," External link

roumanie-en Tuesday, December 10, 2019 9:28:00 AM EAT

Raluca Turcan told : "We could not come with the budget as soon as we were invested, because we prepared the rectification, another huge effort that we had to make, to solve the problems left to us by the PSD [the Social Democratic Party] for the year 2019. We want the year 2020 to see us ready with the budget so that the local authorities deprived by what has happened in the last three years, can build their local budgets, as the activity of the local authorities has a huge role in creating the economic growth we need so much at national level," External link

I voted for a Romania where institutions should get to function for the majority, and not for the political clientele, for a Romania where institutions be efficient in the areas of healthcare, education, public order, security, for a Romania where parents and grandparents raise children without fearing that criminals are set free, for a Romania where if you go to school, you get educated and if you want to get hired, you get hired based on merits and not connections. There is only one candidate to Presidency who can have a partner government and who can bring us to this Romania, where the fundamental rights are respected, where Romanians feel safe and secure," External link

For more than two years and a half, we have been in a state of undeclared siege. Democracy and the institution of Parliament have been under the ceaseless assault of the PSD - ALDE, with one single goal: to seize Romania through legislative leverage, to paralyse the institutions, aiming to support the plans of the criminals lined up behind (former PSD leader, currently in jail, ed. n.)

Under the same draft, government emergency ordinances would be diminished in abundance, because we have developed organisations that can raise constitutional objections over emergency ordinances.

Raluca Turcan said : "This budget is signed by a prime minister who has failed all the important exams of education - early and late admission to high school exams and admission to college. The great regress of the Romanian society is that such a person subsequently became MEP and prime minister of Romania (...) The Social Democratic Party (PSD) is at rule, holds the speakership of the chamber and the chairmanships of the important parliamentary committees, and it also has Mr Valcov, the great guru of budgets, finance and cemeteries, and with all these advantages, it has failed to make up a budget that is coherent and debated under the best legal circumstances. Three months overdue, we have obtained an improvised, lying budget that is disconnected from all the big interests of Romania. It is questionable from a constitutional point of view. It mirrors perfectly [PM] Viorica Vasilica Dancila - as it is failing all the tests that have anything to do with the real priorities of the Romanian society (...) It is a budget of those who are at fault with the Criminal Code and more benevolent to criminal offenders than to honest Romanians. This Dragnea&Valcov budget is patched, praised, contradicted, and amended in the pure style of political mobsters. It is the vitamin D budget, instead of a budget to treat all the chronic illnesses triggered by the PSD governance. It is a budget promoted through rough and painful machinations. You are cynically placing in the balance the four million children of Romania against the bodies that are essential to our safety. (...)

Of eight regional hospitals, you have reached three, which will not be built in the end; your raising the doctors’ pay is in vain because infrastructure is still in collapse.

Adevărat, Guvernul Grindeanu a adoptat proiectul în ianuarie 2017. Dar Toader era deja ministru când proiectul a fost discutat în Senat (adoptat pe 13 martie) şi ulterior la Camera Deputaţilor (adoptat pe 9 mai 2017). Toader avea, aşadar, obligaţia să apere proiectul adoptat de Guvernul Grindeanu şi să se opună modificărilor care au condus azi la consecinţe grave pentru siguranţa cetăţeanului. Din ce se auzea la acel moment, Toader a interzis reprezentanţilor MJ să meargă în Parlament să apere proiectul. Ar fi interesant de văzut dacă cineva din Ministerul Justiţiei a participat la vreo lucrare sau şedinţă a vreunei comisii din vreo Cameră, în procesul de adoptare a legi. Eu ştiu că nu. A da vina pe guvernul tehnocrat este numai o altă mârşăvie din lunga listă pe care istoria o va reţine în dreptul lui Toader" External link
