Antonescu readies for 2014 presidential election

National Liberal Party (PNL) President Crin Antonescu will stand for Romania’s president in the 2014 election, as, for him, running for president is like ‘military conscription’. In an interview with the ‘Confidential’ magazine, the Liberal leader admitted having changed his hairstyle to look more ‘Brussels-like’, adding that he, his wife Adina Valean and his daughter from a previous marriage live in a three-bedroom rented apartment in the Constitution Square area and he prefers Bucharest, and city living in general, to going on picnics. ‘Yes, I’m an atypical politician, you might say. Or a rather normal person, I would say. (…) I stay a lot more than some would believe. I’m the stay at home kind of person (…). I hardly go out on weekends. I’m a most pro-city living type of guy. I’m not crazy about nature hikes, or going on picnics. I like the city and I adore walking the streets, when the city is fresh-aired,’ Antonescu said. In another interview, with ‘Jurnalul National’, Crin Antonescu spoke about what motivated him to get into politics. Asked why a history teacher would get into politics, Antonescu answered: I got upset! (…) This is why I’ve entered politics. I know it’s not enough. It may be my place shouldn’t have been here, yet, now it is.’
