MP Dan Morega quits Liberal Party

Deputy Dan Ilie Morega announced his resignation from the opposition National Liberal Party in a press conference yesterday. “I am resigning as head of PNL Gorj and as PNL member and I will remain an independent,” lawmaker Morega said, quoted by Mediafax news agency. He added that he had no agreement with any other party and that he does not plan to join another organisation. Morega underlined however that he was willing to work with other parliamentary groups on legislation that serves citizens’ interests.

Morega also criticised PNL leader Crin Antonescu, accusing him of “indifference” to the party’s elected officials – lawmakers, mayors, county councillors. He said PNL used to be the opposition’s first voice and now is merely as “second-hand voice,” adding that more of lawmakers will soon quit the party.

Commenting on the resignation, Antonescu said Morega decided on this move because on Monday, he was going to be replaced as head of PNL Gorj anyhow, for various “abuse of position issues.” Antonescu said Morega was always “a downside in image for the party,” but underlined that any member’s departure is a loss. Morega is currently probed in two corruption cases – one regarding illegal use of position accusations and one into illegal fundraising during PNL’s election campaign in 2007.
