He has previously served as mayor of Bucharest, and minister of transportation in the Ciorbea, Vasile, Isărescu, Roman and Stolojan governments. Prior to joining the government, he was a marine officer and merchant navy captain for the Romanian commercial fleet, having graduated in 1976 from the 'Mircea cel Bătrân' Civil Maritime Institute.

Vladimir Tismăneanu is professor of comparative politics and director of the Center for the Study of Post-communist Societies, University of Maryland.
