Ludovic Orban said in the interview that the party could not afford to submit a censure motion without at least 90% chance of success. PNL would submit it once it would have the necessary number of votes to pass it - 233.

He said his party was ready to provide a transition government with the goal to organise early general elections, which, he said, should remain a very clear option after presidential elections due to take place later this year.

Orban said his party would review the state of public administration once it comes to hold the government and the departure of many is certain, as the state apparatus is burdened with lots of employees who have come without any merit.
