Romanian Foreign Intelligence Service (SIE). On June 14, President Klaus Iohannis notified the Presidents of the two Chambers of Parliament of his proposal to appoint Gabriel Vlase as head of the Romanian Foreign Intelligence Service (SIE). The position has been vacant since 2016 after the resignation of Mihai Răzvan Ungureanu. Vlase is currently the vice-President of the Chamber of Deputies, member of the Committee for Defence and the Joint Special Committee for analyzing national security laws. Formerly, he was the President of the parliamentary committee overseeing SIE. The Presidency's proposal for SIE comes at a moment when Iohannis is expected to decide whether he dismisses head DNA prosecutor Laura Codruța Kovesi at the request of JustMin Tudorel Toader. Reactions. Marian Neacșu, Secretary General of PSD stated on June 15th that the proposal is highly welcomed, even if PSD did not make an official request in this regard. Nonetheless, he confirmed that there have been internal discussions on who would be best suited for the position, Vlase being the favorite candidate. ALDE President, Călin Popescu-Tăriceanu mentioned he was not informed of the nomination, but that Vlase seems like a suitable candidate. Even PNL President Ludovic Orban did not voice concerns, stating that Iohannis "must have had extremely valid grounds” for his choice.
