From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vasile Blaga (born July 26, 1956) is a Romanian politician. In December 2008 he was appointed Minister of Regional Development and Housing.

A member of the Democratic Party, he was the Minister of Administration and Interior in the first Călin Popescu-Tăriceanu government (December 2004-March 2007).

Political career

Born in Petrileni, Bihor County, Blaga started his political career after the fall of Communism in Romania in 1989. He was a Member of Parliament in the Romanian Chamber of Deputies, representing Bihor County, between 1990 and 1991, after which he became the Prefect of Bihor, serving until 1993.

Following the legislative election of 1996, he became a member of the Romanian Senate from the Democratic Party, representing Bihor County. He was reelected at the 2004 election for the Justice and Truth Alliance, of which the Democratic Party was a member, representing Bucharest (where he presently resides). Blaga was appointed as the Minister of Administration and Interior Affairs later in the same year.

In 2008, he was a candidate for the position of mayor of Bucharest from the Democratic-Liberal Party, seeking to replace incumbent mayor Adriean Videanu, who did not want to compete for a second term.

He came second in the first round of the elections, trailing independent Sorin Oprescu. For the second round, he gained the support of Gigi Becali's New Generation Party[1] and of the Social Democrat mayor Bucharest's Sector 2, Neculai Onţanu.[2], as well as the opposition of National Liberal Party and the Social Democratic Party (Romania).[3] Oprescu won the race on a 56-44 margin.[4]
