The Cioloș Cabinet is the 125th Government of Romania. It is led by Dacian Cioloș, who was appointed Prime Minister of Romania on 10 November 2015, after the resignation of Victor Ponta amid mass protests against generalised corruption linked to the Colectiv nightclub fire. It consists of 21 ministers. No member of the Cabinet is politically affiliated, Cioloș Government becoming the first entirely politically independent cabinet in Romanian history, made up of technocrats.
After the resignation of Victor Ponta amid November 2015 protests, President Klaus Iohannis nominated on 10 November Dacian Cioloș, former Romanian Minister of Agriculture and European Commissioner, to form a new government. Five days later, Cioloș presented the list of proposed ministers. Two of the initial nominees, Andrei Baciu for the Ministry of Health and Cristina Guseth for the Ministry of Justice, were withdrawn.
Cioloș Government received on 17 November the vote of confidence from Parliament, the result being 389 votes "for", 115 "against" and two invalid votes. In the speech to senators and deputies, the premier stated that his team does not want and can not replace the political class, alluding to Călin Popescu-Tăriceanu's attacks, but also of other MPs who said that the technocratic formula practically abolishes the Parliament.
