PNL Senator Varujan Vosganian claims PSD and PD-L’s election campaign money came from the commissions of investment contracts worth several billions of EUR. Vosganian stated during the ‘Ora de foc’ TV talk-show that the money with which PSD and PD-L funded their respective campaigns had come from investment contracts. ‘Look how much 2009 election campaigns cost. In my opinion, PSD and PD-L’s cost between EUR 150 and EUR 200 M. A total of EUR 200 M – illegal party financing – means that those who paid must have retained something for themselves. Multiply that by 10-15 per cent which is the regular commission, and you will see that some billions of EUR were embezzled or awarded as privilege rather than spent efficiently on the competitive market,’ said the PNL Senator.
