Daea once again named minister of agriculture

Petre Daea will replace Adrian Chesnoiu as minister of agriculture, Social Democrat president Marcel Ciolacu announced on July 6, after the meeting of the party’s National Political Council.

Daea has repeatedly served as minister of agriculture in the Social Democrat post-communist governments, after a two-decade career in administration during the communist regimes.

The nomination will be submitted to prime minister Nicolae Ciuca, Ciolacu added.

The previous agriculture minister, Adrian Chesnoiu, resigned after the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) initiated investigations related to alleged frauds in the hiring process at his ministry.
