Vasilica Viorica Dăncilă (ex Vasilica Rodica Nica) was born on 16 December 1963 in Roșiorii de Vede, Teleorman County. In 1988 she graduated from the Faculty of Drilling of Wells and Exploitation of Hydrocarbon Deposits of the Institute of Petroleum and Gas in Ploiești. In 2006 Dăncilă obtained the master in European Public Space at the National School of Political and Administrative Studies in Bucharest.
In 2009, Viorica Dăncilă was elected on the lists of the Social Democratic Party for her first term as a member of the European Parliament and then sat as a member of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats group. During the 5-year term, she did not draft any report as a rapporteur (primary legislator).
In 2014, Viorica Dăncilă was elected for another term as MEP on the Social Democratic Party's list. She was also the leader of the Romanian Social Democrat delegation in the EP and a vice chair of the European Parliament's Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development. She was also a full member of the Committee on Women's Rights and Gender Equality and a substitute member of the Committee on Regional Development.
In 2015, she was shortlisted for the MEP Awards, in the Agriculture category. Two years later, in 2017, she was again nominated, in two separate categories: Women's Rights & Gender Equality and Research & Innovation.
In 2015, social democratic women proposed a Pact to the national political forces which aimed to protect women from domestic violence. This was an initiative of Viorica Dăncilă, then the acting chairwoman of the organization, brought up at the OFSD Summer School in Mamaia, on 28–30 August.
In October 2015, she was elected President of the Social Democratic Women's Organization. As President of OFSD, Viorica Dăncilă asked PSD leaders to ensure a quota of at least 30% female candidates on the lists of the Social Democratic Party during elections. The proposal was approved by the PSD leadership.
She officially left the European Parliament on 28 January 2018 to take up the position of Prime Minister in Romania.
On 17 January 2018, President of the Social Democratic Party Liviu Dragnea nominated Viorica Dăncilă as Romania's first female Prime Minister and the country's third head of government in a year. Her predecessor, Mihai Tudose, resigned on 15 January after his own party withdrew its backing. President Klaus Iohannis accepted PSD's nomination and appointed Dăncilă as prime minister-designate in a move harshly criticized by his supporters and main opposition parties. Her cabinet received the vote of confidence from Parliament on 29 January.
In February 2018, Dăncilă was in center of a discrimination scandal. She catalogued as "autistic" the MEPs who "misinform the EU" with regard to changes to the justice laws. Soon after, the Association of Parents of Children with Autism claimed that the use of the term "autistic" with a profoundly negative meaning in a political dispute is an offense to those with this condition. Moreover, the National Council for Combating Discrimination began the hearing procedures of Viorica Dăncilă for her perceived discriminatory comments. She later apologized for the statement and said that through the comparison she did not want to insult people with autism spectrum disorders.
In July 2018, during a meeting with Montenegrin Prime Minister Duško Marković, she confused the capital of the country, Podgorica, with Pristina, the capital of Kosovo (which is not recognized as an independent nation by Romania).
On 17 May 2018, Ludovic Orban, leader of the main opposition PNL party filed a criminal complaint against Dăncilă for high treason and usurping of official qualities about the transfer of the Romanian embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem without the consent and approval of President Klaus Iohannis. One month later, on 28 June 2018, DIICOT (the Directorate for Investigating Organised Crime and Terrorism) announced that it had started the in rem investigation into the matter. On 28 September 2018, DIICOT announced it concluded the investigation and closed the case on the basis of lack of evidence in support of the accusation, stating that the high treason never occurred.
She was ousted as prime minister on 10 October 2019, following a vote of no confidence. She remained as a caretaker of the office until the formation of a new government.
Viorica shares one son named Victor with her husband Cristinel.
