Liberal-Conservatives become third biggest force in Parliament


The parliamentary group of the Conservative Party has changed name into the Liberal-Conservative political group after PC and PLR had signed a parliamentary cooperation agreement on Monday designed to help promote centre-right projects and measures. Yesterday, Senate Speaker Calin Popescu Tariceanu said six independent senators had joined the new PC=PLR political group set up on Monday – Calin Popescu Tariceanu, Sorin Iliesiu, Daniel Barbu, Liviu Pasca, Petru Ehegartner, Nicolae Nasta. ‘The six senators, alongside the PC group senators, drafted a protocol and pour group is now called the PC-PLR Liberal-Conservative Group’, said the leader of PC senators, Dumitru Pelican, during the plenary meeting yesterday. He also informed that the deputy leader of the PC-PLR group would be Liviu Pasca. The new PC-PLR group is the third largest political group in the Senate.
The PC-PLR group has an equally important weight in the Chamber of Deputies. Yesterday, lower Chamber member Dan Laurentiu Tocut resigned from PNL to join the K\Liberal-Conservative Group, next to the 20 non-affiliated and Liberal MPs who started working in the Liberal Conservative Group on Monday. Those are: Daniel Chitoiu, Ion Cupa, Mihai Stanisoara, Viorel Palasca, Andrei Gherea, Radu Stroe, Nicolae Alexandri, Gratiela Gavrilescu, Nicu Marcu, Sorin Teju, Gheorghe Mirel Talos, Ion Pargaru, Ovidiu Silaghi, Octavian Bot, Virgil Guran, Viorel Ursarescu, Paul Dumbravanu, Florica Calota, Steluta Cataniciu and Constantin Galan. ‘This makes us the third largest group in the Chamber of Deputies. As far as we, PC, are concerned, this parliamentary cooperation is very useful with a view to the projects we have had starting with the election campaign, very useful from the point of view of the promises we made to our voters and for supporting legislative priorities we promised to support during the campaign. Our group now counts 37 members and it has a strengthening outlook’, Bogdan Ciuca, the leader of the Liberal-Conservative Group in the lower Chamber said yesterday.
