Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu has submitted to President Klaus Iohannis a list of his pick for justice minister - Tudorel Toader; economy minister - Mihai Tudose; business environment, trade and entrepreneurship - Alexandru Petrescu, as well as for minister-delegate for European funds - Rovana Plumb.
The Government says the nomination were made "in accordance with Article 85 (2) and Article 106 in Romania's Constitution as well as under Article 7 and Article 10 in Law 90/2001 concerning the organisation and operation of Romania's Government and ministries, as subsequently amended and supplemented."
The National Executive Committee of the Social Democratic Party (PSD) approved Tudorel Toader being nominated to the office of justice minister left vacant after the resignation of Florin Iordache and currently held by acting minister Ana Birchall.
Alexandru Petrescu, the incumbent economy minister, was picked for the office of minister for the business environment left vacant following former holder Florin Jianu's resignation early this February.
Tudose was elected to replace Petrescu at the Economy Ministry.
Also at its convention, the PSD National Executive Committee approved the nomination of the party's Rovana Plumb to become a minister-delegate in charge with European funds.
President Klaus Iohannis on Thursday February 23, 2017 signed the decrees appointing to office the four new ministers.
