Ludovic Orban is a career politician, currently President of the National Liberal Party (PNL). As the Minister of Transport from April 2007 to December 2008, during the Tăriceanu government, he made available 72km of highway and has signed infrastructure programs of more than RON 3,3 billion. He was embroiled in several scandals, on of which was linked to corruption. He was acquited in 2017 by the High Court of Cassation and Justice, and the DNA plea to restart the trial was rejected by the 5-judge committee in 2018. He is a supporter of several controversial labor reforms, among which reintroducing the income tax for the IT sector.
In the past few weeks Ludovic Orban has tried to gain the support of the other opposition parties to ensure the validation of his cabinet in the Parliament. While he succeeded in gaining the support of USR, ALDE and UDMR by making compromises, Orban did not convince Pro-Romania to vote in its favor. Moreover, PMP remains undecided, with Eugen Tomac stating that a decision will be made within PMP. Orban claimed that he will continue the negotiations with other political parties, including PSD trying to secure a parliamentarian majority, but the situation is not in inclined in his favor. We believe that Ludovic Orban will have a hard time trying to pass the vote of confidence in the Parliament and that President Klaus Iohannis will have to make another proposition.
Today, Orban will submit the list of ministers and the Governing Program in the Parliament and the hearing of the ministers will begin next week.
