Justice Minister Florin Iordache announced he decided to tender his resignation. "I have decided to tender my resignation from the office as Justice Minister," Iordache said at the Victoria Palace. He pointed out that all initiatives he assumed were "legal and constitutional."
"Since I have come to the Justice Ministry, I planned and carried out all legal demarches to fix a series of existing and quite sensitive problems. All assumed initiatives are legal and constitutional. The drafts proposed were submitted to public debate organised by the Justice Ministry, and now they are under parliamentary debate. In spite of all these, for the public opinion it wasn't enough, therefore I have decided to tender my resignation as Justice Minister," Iordache said at the Victoria Palace, in a press briefing.
