PNL’s Antonescu – ready to over the PM position

“I am ready to take on the prime-minister position, if the Standing Delegation of the National Liberal Party (PNL) grant me their vote,” the Liberal leader Crin Antonescu stated yesterday, before taking part in talks in the party’s Central Political Bureau (BPC). At any rate, the Liberals seem to have completed the alternative project for Government, which is to be agreed upon with the Social Democratic Party (PSD).


The Liberals’ work group is led by Varujan Vosganian, who stated, at the end of the BPC meeting, that the party leaders had agreed, in principle, on the “To a new economy” Liberal program, which is to be put to a final vote in Monday’s Standing Delegation. He added that this program is not “a program for Government proper”, as it does not include concrete measures in reference to the immediate reality, but ample measures for state reform, as well as ways of balancing the social budgets and the state budget. As regards the Liberal deputies’ intention to call for the suspension of the Speaker of the Chamber, Roberta Anastase, announced last week, Antonescu underlined he supported it, but he couldn’t tell how far it had advanced. At the same time, the Liberals decided yesterday to support the candidacy of the former Labour Minister, Mariana Campeanu, for the office of Hunedoara deputy, left vacant after the death of Ioan Timis, elected as a member of PNL, but subsequently transferred to the Democrat Liberal Party (PDL).
