The PNL plans to forward its draft governance program to lawmakers on Monday, while on Tuesday, October 29, parliamentary committees will hold hearings of all proposed government ministers, Orban said in a public letter to Parliament, as reported by English-language news website Romania-insider.com.
The draft governance program is focused on stimulating investment and reducing the budget deficit. According to a document sent to Parliament, the Orban cabinet will have 16 ministries, instead of the 24 of the ousted Social Democrat cabinet led by Viorica Dăncilă.
Since his appointment by President Klaus Iohannis as prime minister-designate on October 15, Orban has been negotiating with other parties in order to win their support for his cabinet in Parliament, according to Romania-insider.com.
As previously reported on BBJ.hu, the fomer Social Democrat government lost a vote of no-confidence on October 10.
