Parliament validates Economy Ministry candidate

Marţi, 12 decembrie 2006, 0:00

Romanian MPs approved the candidacy of Liberal Varujan Vosganian to take over the position of Economy minister with a large majority on Tuesday. Vosganian will replace Codrut Seres, who resigned from the government when his political group, the Conservative Party-PC, decided to withdraw from the governing coalition recently.

Vosganian received 289 votes in favour and 66 against as only the opposition Social Democrats-PSD and the far-right Greater Romania Party-PRM have said they would oppose the nomination.

This autumn, Vosganian, a Senator for the National Liberal Party-PNL, was nominated to represent Romania in the European Commission. But was forced to withdraw from the process following a series of allegations that he had collaborated with the Communist-era political police. He has repeatedly rejected the allegations.

During hearings on Monday, Vosganian has said he planned to maintain energy prices within acceptable limits for the population and that he would push for the Economy Ministry to retain the management of state-controlled energy companies.

That right has been in doubt after the main body managing this companies on behalf of the state, OPSPI, was passed from the Ministry to the Authority for State Assets Recovery in a maneuver commonly seen as politically motivated.
