The Save Romania Union (USR) does not intend to support a minority government that already has the support of the Social Democratic Party (PSD), USR national chairman Dacian Ciolos said on Thursday.


"We are aiming for a majority government, enjoying majority support in Parliament, a coalition government, because otherwise USR does not intend to support a minority government that already has the support of PSD. We came up the other day with a government agenda. (...) It doesn't even matter how USR will vote as long as PNL [National Liberal Party] has announced that it already has support in Parliament, and I understand that PSD has also announced that it can support such a minority government. (...) There seems to already exist an agreement between PNL and PSD with which they probably feel comfortable with each other, so there is no question of support from USR," Ciolos said at the end of a meeting of the USR National Bureau convened after the appointment of Nicolae Ciuca as candidate for the position of prime minister.


According to him, "Romania needs firm decisions for its modernisation, (...) a government that wants not only to manage the crisis, but to modernise the country as well."


"We could quickly have a PNL - USR - UDMR [Hungarian Democratic Union of Romania] government, but the decision rests with PNL and it will be a decision it will take ownership of," Ciolos said.


He added that USR, if it is not in power, "obviously will be in the opposition," but will support some measures in Parliament.


"There are a lot of measures that we had with PNL in the governing agenda. We will continue to support them in Parliament. We will come up with legislative initiatives that implement parts of the PNRR [National Recovery and Resilience Plan]. (...) We are now talking about the swearing-in of a minority government for the swearing-in of which we have not been asked," said the USR leader.


Ciolos underlined that moving forward measures are essential for overcoming the healthcare crisis and that of energy prices.


"But such measures will not be enough to solve the systemic problems we have in Romania. Money will come to Romania, under the National Recovery and Resilience Plan, European funds. We have a commitment to reform measures, (... ) to implement them you need a majority in Parliament, a political majority. We do not know what the intentions of this government are in relation to these reform projects. How does it intend to negotiate them? With whom? With PSD? Will it negotiate with PSD modernisation reforms, transparency in the use of funds, in the fight against corruption?," he added.


Asked what makes him think PNL is still open to rebuilding the coalition, Ciolos replied: "Nothing. I am telling you what my mandate is from the National Bureau. We are not closing the doors. That is our vision of how it should be. I have not yet heard Prime Minister-designate Ciuca making any remarks and I have not heard what his intentions are on how he wants to build this government, with whom he wants to work and how. Obviously, if I am invited, I will go and tell him these things and I will tell him what mandate I have from my party leadership."
