USR President, Cătălin Drula, declared, following the speech given by the designated prime minister, regarding the government program, that “we already know what Ciolacu can deliver to the government”, listing the price increases, the privileges for special people, the stagnation and blocking of reforms and added that ” it’s been more than a year and a half since he practically leads the Government of Romania, and what started today is only the second stage in which he also formally becomes prime minister”.
“We already know what Ciolacu can deliver to the government: price increases, privileges for special people, stagnation and the blocking of reforms. It’s been more than a year and a half since he practically leads the Romanian government. What begins today is only the second stage in which he also formally becomes prime minister. I listened to a speech that is the opposite of Mr. Ciolacu’s action in the last year and a half. Two random examples: 1) “We solve special pensions”. Marcel Ciolacu is the one who blocked the USR elimination projects for over a year, 2) “We will gradually reduce labor taxation”. It is said by the one who overtaxed part-time contracts, hitting precisely those with low and medium incomes”, declared Cătălin Drula.
The president of the USR also explained that “we lack not the words, many of them copied from the USR, but the facts”.
“It’s not the words, many of them copied from USR, that we lack, but the facts. We don’t lack plans, we have the best one: PNRR. But their implementation: the reforms and investments included in the PNRR. It’s been six months since the government around the PSD only talks about functions. Who, what ministry gets the rotary. In these six months, food has become more expensive, rates have increased, the economy has slowed down sharply, and the country’s budget is in tatters,” he added.
Drula also added that “Romania needs change, not stagnation”.
“In order for Romania to modernize, the PSD era must end definitively”. A quote from 2020 from the one who today did the shameful act of giving the mandate of prime minister to Ciolacu”, concluded Cătălin Drula.
