USR President Dacian Ciolos said on Saturday (November 13th) that a renegotiation of the PNRR at the European Commission at this time would mean “a return to zero, a blockage of the program”, noting that such an approach could be possible. in 2023.

He added that for Florin Cîţu such an approach now “would be a bit embarrassing”.

“I wish them success. To renegotiate it. It would be a bit embarrassing for Mr. Cîţu, because he is the prime minister who signed that PNRR together with the president of the Commission,” Cioloş said on Saturday at Digi 24.

The USL leader stressed that the renegotiation of PNRR would mean blocking the program because this would involve the reorganization of budget allocations, but also reforms.

“First of all, it is not clear to me what Mr. Ciolacu wants to negotiate or renegotiate in PNRR. (…) A renegotiation would mean, practically, a return to zero, meaning we would no longer have PNRR, the implementation it would be blocked and it would have to be re-discussed, renegotiated and we would postpone the implementation of the PNRR for somewhere next year. , because it would involve reorganizing budget allocations, but also reforms.If these are only one-off issues, then the program could go on like this, but until the renegotiation is completed, what has been negotiated remains in force and, in any case, So, anyway, the Government and the Parliament will have to put into practice those commitments that are already … “, added Dacian Cioloş.

He said that, as with the other PNRRs agreed at EU level, there is a possibility of adjustments, but halfway through the implementation of the programs.

“There is a possibility, and this is the case with all National Plans, halfway through the implementation of the plan, so somewhere in 2023, and the Commission intends to see how the implementation of the programs works and propose adjustments, if necessary. But that will be in 2023. If the Government now wants to renegotiate, after the program has just been approved, from my point of view, this would mean, at this stage, practically blocking the program and including the access to financing “, Cioloş claimed.

He pointed out that, beyond the “possibility or impossibility” of a renegotiation of PNRR, it is also a “matter of seriousness” on the part of Romania.
