TALKS
Romanian president, Klaus Iohannis on Tuesday designated PSD leader Marcel Ciolacu
as candidate for the position of Prime Minister. On Monday, the PNL leader
Nicolae Ciuca stepped down under the political agreement with the PSD on the
planned rotation of the cabinets and on Tuesday he was elected president of the
Senate. The Prime Minister designate says that he wants the future government
focus on economy and reforms. Romania needs these reforms as well as the
National Programme of Recovery and Resilience. Romania’s place is in the
European Union and NATO. And no matter how much some people would like Romania
to take another direction, the country’s way is sure and with political
stability it becomes a certainty Marcel Ciolacu went on to say. The opposition
USR has criticized the government rotation as this isn’t going to solve the problems
of the citizens.








FRIGATE The Romanian flagship, frigate
‘King Ferdinand’ is to sail back to the Romanian Port of Constanta, on the
Black Sea, after having participated in a six-week operation in the
Mediterranean, the Romanian Navy Chief of Staff has announced. The mission of
the Romanian servicemen consisted of enforcing the UN arms embargo imposed on
Libya and in combating the illegal trafficking in oil, drugs and people through
the close monitoring of maritime traffic and vessels in the area. The ‘King
Ferdinand’ has also carried out various joint activities with partner vessels
from Italy, Germany and Greece, participating in the IRINI Operation.






WEATHER Romanian hydrologists have extended,
until Wednesday, the Code yellow and Code orange alerts for flooding, valid for
rivers in 17 counties in the center and west of the country. The torrential
rain on Monday night affected several localities in the south and south-west of
Romania. The red code alert instituted by meteorologists for this region was
lifted this morning, and dozens of intervention teams were sent to evacuate
water from people’s households, after several streams of water burst their
banks. At the same time, hectares of agricultural land were flooded. The most
affected counties are Caraş-Severin, Vâlcea, Hunedoara and Mehedinţi. Heavy
rainfalls also caused flooding in Timiş and Alba counties on Monday.
