În Brussels, PM Dancila presented Juncker with the latest evolution regarding ‘ reform and amendments in the judicial system’


The prime-minister Viorica Dancila presented in a meeting on Tuesday in Brussels with the president of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker ‘  the latest evolution as regards reform and amendments to the judicial system’ in Romania,a press release of the government says.

According to the quoted source, the meeting Dancila-Juncker took place on the occasion of the working visit  of the Romanian premier to Brussels.The meeting was attended by Frans Timmermans, prime vice-president of EC and Corina Cretu,European Commissionaire for regional policy.

On  this occasion,Dancila presented the priorities of the presidency of Romania to the EU Council with regards to the main  files on the European Agenda,as well as the reflection process regarding the EU future, the discussions on the margin of the future Multiannual Financial Framework and the negotiations in the case of Brexit.

Premier Viorica Dancila discussed on Tuesday in Brussels with the European Commissionaire for budget Gunther Oettinger. The Romanian prime-minister mentioned to him  the importance of keeping allocation for the cohesion policy and the common agricultural one within the Multiannual Financial Framework post-2020, the government says.

She aslo mentioned to  the European commissionaire for budget  and human resources Gunther Oettingr that in order to get political agreement on the  Multiannual Financial Framework post-2020 Romania could organise, at the end of October an international conference regarding the future of the cohesion policy.

Last but not least, premier Dancila and the European Commissionaire Gunther Oettinger convened on the starting in Bucharest  between September and November2018 of a dialogue at the level of experts in the domains of budgt and human resources.

Dancila had on Tuesday a meeting with Phil Hogan,European Commissionaire for agriculture and rural development with whom she discussed about the common agricultural policy and about the floodings in Romania of the latest period.

The MEP Siegfried Muresan says that premier Viorica Dancila comes after five months to Brussels with a shameful  balance sheet: inflation and record deficit, the going away from the euro zone, low absorption of European funds,anti-justice laws,weak preparation for the EU presidency.

Siegfried Muresan  states that,firstly, the present premier  made a priority from weakening justice ‘to please the criminal chairman of PSD Liviu Dragnea’ – supported the request for revocation of the head-prosecutor DNA by the minister of justice although the Superior Council of Magistrates had a negative agreement, the destitution procedure supported at the same time, the amendments to the criminal code through which the justice act was weakened and the abuse in position is  almost annulled.

He also says  that another counter-performance of the Dancila government in almost six months of mandate represents the absorption of the European funds. Thus premier Dancila and the minister for European funds absorbed only 3.5 million euro out of the 4.37 billion euro allocated by the EU to our country between 2014 and 2020 for combatting unemployment. As regards the Regional Operational Programme, the absorption of the Dancila Government is only 34 million euro,out of 6.7billion euro allocation for this period.In this way, there will be withdrawals of European funds until the end of the year.

Similarly, according  to the MEP, the government proves weak preparation for the Romanian presidency of the European Union Council  which will start on 1 January 2019, the calendar of the ministerial reunions from the time of the EU presidency proposed by the government being one lacking in vision, the MEP says.

The European Commission has warned the Romanian government several times with regards to the consequences of the measures adopted. On 1 March, the prime vice-chairman Frans Timmermans required Romania not to take steps in the wrong direction and adopt the necessary reforms to lift the MCV.

In May the European Commission warned the government twice regarding the effects of the fiscal policies and drew the attention that the executive did   not take the necessary measures to reduce the budgetary deficit.Similarly, in June,the Council of the finance ministers of the EU required Romania to take all measures to reduce the budgetary slippery.

Similarly,immediately after the approval of the amendments to the criminal code by the parliament, the European Commission reacted by saying that they will read carefully all legislative amendments and they will not hesitate to take measures for observing the European treaties  which Romania signed.
