[Check against delivery]

Good evening! It was a long day, in which all the procedural activities regarding the investiture of the Romanian Government took place and the first Cabinet meeting is held this evening after a period of political crisis. I would like to thank, once again, the Romanian Parliament for giving us the vote of confidence. I want to also thank the political parties that understood that the Romanian citizens and the interest of our country must be above everything else.

We are here in this format to go through the meeting agenda, which has a single item, a draft emergency ordinance on measures to be established at the level of the central public administration, and for the amendment of some normative acts.

Before entering into the debate on this agenda item, I would like to mention that today is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and I consider it appropriate that the Romanian Government sends a message condemning any kind of violence against women. Thank you!
