Romanian President Traian Basescu on Thursday urged a 20 percent reduction of the over-dimensioned public sector, through layoffs and not salary cuts.

Basescu said on the public radio station that the public administration is "over-dimensioned" and 20 percent of the employees are "useless," which can affect the state budget resources. He stressed that under the current "budget consuming" situation the government has to take "general measures of cutting the public sector staff, to be immediately applied."

The head of state said he doesn't understand why the government stalls reducing the "exaggeratedly large state apparatus."

"I appreciate the prime minister for trying to solve this issue through negotiations inside the coalition," said Basescu, but stressed that such talks are no longer a solution.
