TI-Romania: Future governments must change the operating system, instead of limited improvements

Issued by Transparency International Romania



In light of the resignation of Prime Minister, Victor Ponta, Transparency International Romania urge the political class to cater for change to be substantial, not only formal, and for the mandate of the new Government of Romania to respond to the legitimate expectations of the Romanians who protested.

The programme of the future government is indisputably tied to the legitimacy of the moment in which it takes over the country’s administration, regardless of the governing coalition that will be formed this afternoon.

Transparency International Romania considers that the programme of the future government must focus on the following key aspects:

The new model for governing and administration must set clear criteria for working responsibilities for each civil servant involved, as well as quantifiable performance criteria for the personnel within public authorities and institutions.

To respond to the legitimate pressure and expectations of Romanian society, the role and goal of the future governing coalition and implicitly of the new government must be to bring sustainable change to the operating system, not only limited improvements.
