The depletion of social democrat’s model for growth through higher income and consumption and the fears for fall in demand in Germany and the EU came together with the National Liberal Party’s taking over of power

Orban fell. Long live Orban!

This is the shortest way of telling what happened in the beginning of February in Romania. Ludovic Orban lost the confidence vote on 5 February 2020, after the oppositional social democrats together with the party of the ethnic Hungarians took down the Orban government. The Romanian Orban however continues to be alive politically, not only because he still governs as caretaker prime minister. He also received from the president and party comrade Klaus Iohannis mandate for formation of a new government. Orban proposed the same minister at the same positions, copy-pasting the cabinet, with which he governed for three months.

Epuizarea modelului socialdemocraţilor de creştere economică prin venituri mai mari şi fricile produse de scăderea cerinţelor pe piețele din Germania şi UE au fost însoţite de preluarea puterii de către PNL

Orban a căzut. Trăiască Orban. Cam aşa poate fi redat ceea ce s-a întâmplat la începutul lunii februarie din România. Ludovic Orban a pierdut moţiunea de cenzură din 5 februarie 2020, după ce socialidemocraţii, aflaţi în opoziţie, împreună cu uniunea maghiarilor au înlăturat guvernul lui. Orban al României însă continuă să fie viu politic, nu doar pentru că mai conduce ca premier demisionat. El a primit de la preşedintele si colegul de partid Klaus Iohanns mandat pentru formarea unui nou guvern. Dar a propus aceiaşi miniştri și pe aceleaşi poziţii de pe care au condus timp de trei luni.

Изтощаването на модела на социалдемократите за растеж чрез по-високи доходи и потребление бяха съпроводени с овладяването на властта от Националнолибералната партия

Орбан падна. Да живее Орбан!

Така може да се предаде случилото се в Румъния. Лудовик Орбан загуби вота на доверие на 5-и февруари, след като социалдемократите в опозиция заедно с партията на етническите унгарци катурнаха кабинета му.

Румънският Орбан обаче продължава да е жив политически, не само защото управлява като премиер в оставка. Той получи от президента Клаус Йоханис, негов съпартиец, мандат за съставяне на ново правителство. И предложи същите министри на същите постове, с които управлява 3 месеца в мандата си.

The executive director of the Bulgarian-Romanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry gave this interview in April 2019 for the Bulgarian television Bloomberg Bulgaria, speaking about the third bridge over the Danube at Svishtov-Zimnicea, about the need for better cross-border connectivity and the successful business cooperation between Bulgaria and Romania

The decision for the construction of the third bridge over the Danube between Bulgaria and Romania at Svishtov-Zimnicea was taken without discussions with the business organisations, which develop the relations between the two countries, such as the Bulgarian-Romanian Chamber of Commerce and industry. This is what the executive director of the chamber Eleonora Ivanova said in an interview for the Bloomberg Bulgaria TV, which is now given to the blog “The Bridge of Friendship”. Furthermore, BRCCI has fighted for the last two years in order to encourage the usage of cheap and effective possibilities for lowering of the traffic at the bridge between Rousse and Giurgiu, through the introduction of a ferryboat. Each bridge over the Danube would contribute to interconnectivity between the two countries, but the need for a new bridge at Rousse-Giurgiu remains dire, says Eleonora Ivanova. That is why when such decisions are taken, they have to be based on the current data and on the experts’ advice.
