Antonescu: I may give up first vice-president office

PNL President Crin Antonescu announced on Tuesday that he may give up the office of first vice president of the party, arguing that it created “tensions.” Nevertheless, Antonescu acknowledged that such a post helps him to exert the duties of leader of the party. “First of all, this office is not definitely or intrinsically connected with Ludovic Orban. Ludovic Orban is the person who won it in the Congress through the vote of our colleagues. I haven’t made up my mind yet. I may give it up, from my point of view, because it has really generated tensions that we didn’t need, that I cannot explain otherwise, because it is an office that would be necessary, an office that helps me, at least, as president,” Antonescu told Realitatea TV. He stated that he has not yet made a decision in this respect. Moreover, Antonescu says that he is “not even” 100 per cent sure if he candidates at PNL Congress for the position of president of the party. “The great stake of the Congress is neither if someone will run against me, nor if I shall candidate myself, because this is not one hundred per cent sure, the stake is if the party will give indeed a mandate for a strong enough, profound enough reform,” the leader of the Liberals said. PC founding president Dan Voiculescu states on his blog that, further to his appeal to the unification of the opposition, “some” began to speak “in a very low voice” about an extraordinary joint PNL-PSD+PC congress, that would take place at the end of March.

In an open letter addressed to the leaders of the opposition on January 28, Dan Voiculescu invited them to set up a Social-Liberal Alliance, saying that the united opposition is the only project that can be a credible alternative to the current regime .
