The leaders of Romania's ruling coalition, made of the National Liberal Party (PNL), USR-PLUS, and the Democratic Alliance of Hungarians in Romania (UDMR), have agreed on sharing the positions of prefect and deputy prefect in the country.
Thus, after several weeks of negotiations, the coalition decided that PNL will have 23 prefects, USR-PLUS will name 14 prefects, and UDMR will have five top representatives at county level, according to sources quoted by Digi24.

PNL will also have 47 deputy prefects, USR-PLUS - 28, and UDMR - 10.
