BUCHAREST, Feb 26 (Reuters) - Romania’s centrist President Klaus Iohannis said on Wednesday he has appointed interim Finance Minister Florin Citu as prime minister-designate to form a transitional government until a parliamentary election in November.
Citu must put together a cabinet within 10 days, and consequently will need to gain parliament’s vote of confidence.
“I want to quickly unlock this deadlock, my nominee for prime minister is the finance minister. I do hope he’ll soon put together a cabinet lineup, governing programme and present it to legislators,” Iohannis told reporters. (Reporting by Radu Marinas Editing by Chris Reese)
