The matter of the proposed Government reshuffle appears to stir discussions in the ruling coalition. As the Government assessment begins on Monday, May 29, as announced by PSD Chairman Liviu Dragnea, in the background, political sources including Social Democrats, as well as pundits have fueled speculations over the break between PSD's Dragnea and ALDE's Călin Popescu Tăriceanu on the one hand, and PM Sorin Grindeanu on the other hand.
At this point, the reshuffling proposed by Dragnea meets the reluctance of PM Grindeanu, who would not replace members of the cabinet just six month into the term and after the reshuffling that took place after the February street protests. Sources from PSD stated for Adevărul daily that Dragnea and Tăriceanu proposed a shortlist which includes: FinMin Viorel Ștefan, MoH Florian Bodog, MinEdu Pavel Năstase, MinDef Gabriel Leș, as well as Ministers of Justice and Energy, Tudorel Toader and Toma Petcu. Quoted political sources stressed that the reshuffling has become a bone of contention in the relationship between PM Grindeanu and the PSD-ALDE ruling coalition. On the other hand, the same political sources brought president Klaus Iohannis into the picture, arguing that the PSD-ALDE majority would be unable to replace PM Grindeanu unless Iohannis accepts it, and there are signs that the President would not.
