Ciorbea enforced several measures in order to advance Romania's transition toward a market economy, including an austeritybudget (following a program known as "Contractul cu România" - "Contract with Romania").
He resigned following a conflict with PNŢCD leader
Ion Diaconescu, moving on to found the minor "Alianţa Natională Creştin Democrată" (the National Christian Democratic Alliance, ANCD), which merged back into the PNŢCD after the latter lost the 2000 elections, and soon after became leader of the reunited party.
Faced with the task of regaining voter confidence, Ciorbea resigned his party office in 2004, in favour of
Gheorghe Ciuhandu, the Mayor of Timişoara. Following the latter's nomination, the party became the Christian-Democratic People's Party.
