The leadership of the Social-Democrat Party (PSD) was delegated by the organisation’s National Standing Bureau to urge the other two opposition parties, the Liberals and the Conservatives, to join a non-collaboration pact with President Traian Basescu, the Emil Boc government and the ruling Democrat Liberals. Party leader Victor Ponta said the he also wanted the other two parties to have “concrete talks (with PSD) in order to achieve a united opposition and a political plan to save Romania from the current situation it is facing,” Agerpres reported. Ponta’s proposal was accepted by PSD’s National Standing Bureau. Commenting on the matter, Liberal leader Crin Antonescu told a press conference that opposition parties, which were scheduled to meet later yesterday, would discuss the matter of a parliamentary alliance, but no conclusions would be drawn just yet. “I still believe that the parliamentary opposition, ourselves, PSD and PC, acted very determinedly this year in the attempt of combating and limiting the current rule, without having this alliance, which would imply many other extra things,” Antonescu said, quoted by the news agency.
