The publicist Ion Cristoiu states that the rotation of prime ministers has been postponed because of the PSD leader, Marcel Ciolacu, he being the one who first challenged the power sharing agreement with the PNL, and now he refuses to take over the government.
“It has been confirmed to me, I don’t know how many times, that this rotation will not take place now and maybe for a shorter period of time. For a period beyond the month of June, I cannot pronounce myself. Among the three leaders of the coalition, the best was, as usual, the Romanian Kelemen Hunor. (….) That the leaders of the coalition did not adhere to this protocol is a confirmation that in Romania no one adheres to any decision”, said the publicist on Friday evening on the Gândurile lui Cristoiu show on Aleph News and Smart TV .
Ion Cristoiu also says that, although the expectations of many were for the PNL to hold on to power, it has reached the paradoxical situation that Marcel Ciolacu refuses to take over the government.
“When this political agreement was signed, almost all Romanians said that this would not be fulfilled because it was a division of power not on the surface, but in time. And the main argument that it will not be fulfilled was that Nicolae Ciucă will not leave and neither will the PNL. Now a paradox has appeared that Marcel Ciolacu and PSD do not want to take over power. (…) The one who contested the agreement or proposed its change was Marcel Ciolacu, but, very interestingly, PNL did not say no. (…) From a political point of view, this rotation had to take place without any problem”, explained the publicist.
Ion Cristoiu is convinced that the postponement of the government rotation is the result of an agreement between Nicolae Ciucă and Marcel Ciolacu, supported by President Iohannis, who was tasked with signaling the postponement of the power exchange.
“Why did it come to this madness? Because the first to challenge was Marcel Ciolacu. Why is it important? Because the agreement could not be respected because of the PNL, because he was in control. And I could say, vatman, I’m not giving up. Now it’s the other way around. Marcel Ciolacu doesn’t want to go up, I don’t know for what reasons. If you were in Ciucă’s place, would you leave? What if he doesn’t want to? (…) It’s clear to me. It’s an agreement between Ciolacu and Ciucă, with the support of Iohannis. Here, Iohannis was in trouble, because not even Ciucă could say that because of the strike he was not leaving, nor could Ciolacu say that because of the strike he did not want to take over power. And then Klaus Iohannis came and said he didn’t want to anymore, although he had no responsibility. He was the girl who marries two or divorces them. Iohannis sent the message that the rotation is not done”, claimed the publicist.
Ion Cristoiu adds that Marcel Ciolacu’s refusal to take over the government, after first contesting the rotation agreement, could also be the result of outside influences.
“Marcel Ciolacu came up with the idea of keeping the Ministry of Transport, he came up with the idea of not negotiating anymore because there is a strike. In my opinion, and it will be confirmed, it was not only his political thought. I think there were also influences or advice from the embassies, from outside to stay well. It is not good to change the prime minister. That’s what I would have done if I were the High Gate. (…) The partners in the chancelleries do not need to beat their heads”, said the publicist.
The teachers’ strike will be suppressed with a pillow
Ion Cristoiu also says that the postponement of the rotation of the prime minister is also an attempt to reduce the impact of the teachers’ strike, a protest which, in his opinion, will be suppressed.
“The fact that the rotation was not done was another attempt to reduce the impact of the teachers’ strike. If a new government came now, Marcel Ciolacu would probably be obliged to do something. Now they are hands free. It will go on the idea of death by itself. Let me tell you what will be the fate of this strike. He leaves them. And on this basis, the party and state televisions will begin to be hacked. And pressure will be put on the union leaders that the strike will die by itself. Now Ciucă cares little. They left Ciucă as a kind of bait there and have free hands to stifle the strike with a pillow. He stifles her”, emphasizes Ion Cristoiu.
In his opinion, “this strike could not stop the rotation. It has no connection because it is not the prime minister who is negotiating. It’s a mockery of a government. If he resigned today, he was an interim government, would Deca die? Not. The wheels work. Why does Ciucă’s stay guarantee that the strike is resolved? There’s no problem”.
