Doctor Raed Arafat, founder of the SMURD medical emergency service, has agreed to return to the Health Ministry on the same position as before, namely deputy state secretary, following discussions with President Traian Basescu and PM Emil Boc, the latter announced, according to Mediafax newswire.

 Arafat resigned last week from the Health Ministry over a dispute with the president and government officials over the new health bill.

Arafat, a Palestinian citizen who has been living in Romania for a very long time, is a symbol for the Romanian society after he founded the SMURD emergency service in 1990. His resignation after the dispute with President Basescu is said to have been the spark that fuelled the protests of the population during the January 13-16 timeframe, that also was marked by violence.
