Centre-Right Alliance to have own candidates in Bucharest districts

The leading council of the Liberal-Conservative Centre-Right Alliance in Bucharest decided in its first session yesterday to have its own candidates in 2012 elections for district mayors, co-president of ACD Bucharest Andrei Chiliman said yesterday, quoted by Mediafax. His comments referred to the protocol of the Social Liberal Union, which consists of ACD and the Social Democrat Party, a protocol which provides that the Union will have a joint candidate for General Mayor and allows district organisations to decide if they want to have separate or common runners in local elections.

Chiliman also announced that the ACD will begin a campaign to raise signatures in support of staging a local referendum on a new capital administration law. The law, backed by ruling Democrat Liberals’ Bucharest branch and its leader Elena Udrea, aims at significantly reducing district mayor’s duties. Chiliman and the other co-president of ACD Bucharest, Cristian Popescu Piedone, said they decided to start this campaign because General Mayor did not answer their request to call a referendum. The two also accused Oprescu of being an “accomplice” of Udrea’s plans to “get hold of Bucharest’s public money by promoting the so-called Capital Law.”
