I found that a solid majority was formed in the Romanian Parliament, a majority that includes the PNL, PSD, UDMR and the minority group. The representatives of this majority wanted to come together to the consultations, I have accepted this and in this format we had a discussion that I consider very good. This majority proposed to me a name of prime minister, a proposal that I accepted. I consequently nominate Mr. Nicolae Ciuca, here present, to form a government team and to appear before the Romanian Parliament for the vote of confidence," declared President Klaus Iohannis, at the Cotroceni Palace.He wished Nicolae Ciuca, present at the Cotroceni Palace, much success.On Monday, the head of state had consultations with the representatives of PNL, PSD, UDMR and of the national minorities, and then with those of AUR (Alliance for the Union of Romanians), in order to nominate the candidate for the position of prime minister.
