PSD leader rules out joining gov’t before 2012

In the third instalment of his extensive interview to daily ‘Jurnalul National,’ published yesterday, opposition Social Democrat leader Victor Ponta underlined he has no plans to join the government before 2012 parliamentary elections. Ponta said he is currently engaged in a process to reform his party and explained that the organisation is not yet ready to take lead of the country. “I don’t think we will join the government before 2012. I personally think we shouldn’t,” he said. When asked however if PSD would be willing to join a Democrat Liberal government once again, Ponta said the matter is for his party to decide, although he personally is against it. The PSD leader explained that his party will have a governing programme ready by the end of 2011 and will run in legislative elections in 2012 and then in presidential and European Parliament elections in 2014. “My project runs until 2014. I will certainly not wait for somebody to remove me as party leader” if PSD fails to win these elections, he said.
