Opposition parties might seal official alliance

The opposition Social-Democrats, Liberals and Conservatives might seal an alliance and register it in court, in view of future elections, according to press reports over the weekend. But, such an objective has not yet garnered consensus from all three parties, according to Realitatea.net, which notes that Social-Democrats would want such an alliance, while Conservatives and Liberals are rather reluctant. “I have been pleading for such a political and legal alliance for a long time. It’s clear that these democratic forces must shake hands. (…) We are sentenced to be together,” PSD Deputy Victor Socaciu told the TV channel. But Conservative Vice President Bogdan Diaconu and Liberal MP Horea Uioreanu said there were never any talks about making an alliance between the opposition parties official. According to Conservative spokesperson Bogdan Ciuca, quoted by daily ‘Adevarul,’ the party will run alone in local elections and based on the results, it will decide its next alliance policies. This strategy, for the first time, allows the possibility that PC run on the same lists with the Liberals in 2012 legislative elections. Until now, Conservatives have had an electoral alliance with the Social-Democrats and the two parties had common lists in elections. The possibility that Conservatives move closer to Liberals reportedly has to do with the fact ties between PSD leader Victor Ponta and Conservative Party founder Dan Voiculescu have grown colder lately.
