National Liberal Party (PNL) President Ludovic Orban stated on Monday, in a press conference, that the battle with PSD-ALDE will be waged “on all fronts” so the Liberals have already started to prepare a strategy on a no-confidence motion against the Government.
“I will do everything legal, constitutional and humanly [possible] to rid Romania of the plague that has struck it, which is called Dragnea. I kept my word and I will keep it. (…) Our battle with this toxic coalition continues and will be waged on all fronts, definitely by use of a no-confidence motion, and we are starting to prepare the strategy for the adoption of this no-confidence motion. Likewise, we will attack all incompetent ministers that have proven, in abundance, their inability to do good things at the ministries they lead,” Ludovic Orban stated.
The PNL leader said that he wants the no-confidence motion strategy implemented as fast as possible, to “maximise” its chances to be adopted by Parliament.
“We want to start implementing this strategy as fast as possible, so that we would maximise this motion’s chances to pass. (…) Guaranteed, we will table a no-confidence motion, but, I repeat, we will table it when we consider it has the biggest chance to pass,” the PNL leader added.
On Monday, USR President Dan Barna stated in a press conference that he is discussing with the PNL the appropriate moment to table a no-confidence motion against the Government, stating that the suspension of contributions to Pillar II Pension Fund could be “precisely the basis that would warrant a no-confidence motion.”
“The no-confidence motion will very likely occur during this legislature [parliamentary session – editor’s note]. We are discussing with our colleagues from the PNL what the most appropriate moment to table it will be. Such an initiative [the suspension of contributions to Pillar II Pension Fund – editor’s note] could be precisely the basis that would warrant a no-confidence motion,” Dan Barna explained.
