The president of the Social-Democrat Party (PSD), Victor Ponta, considers that the election of Vasile Blaga at the helm of the Democrat Liberal Party (PDL) would allow for a “normal relation” between the power and the opposition. “I do not see the possibility of any collaboration between the Social Liberal Union (USL) and a PDL led by Vasile Blaga. However, I do see the possibility, and I think it is only normal, of a relation between a USL in the opposition and a PDL in power, led by Blaga.
People around Blaga are ordinary politicians, with their regular qualities and faults. Those around Elena Udrea and Emil Boc are a mob-like clique,” Victor Ponta stated, quoted by “Evenimentul Zilei”.
Furthermore, the PSD leader argued that the Democrat-Liberals who do not line-up behind Emil Boc would not be featured on the Government’s funding lists. “There is a Romania of the Democrat-Liberals who receive money from the Government, from the reserve fund, via the Emergency Ordinance no. 7, via the Government Resolution 577 or via Ms. Udrea’s program of embezzling and hijacking public funds to put them to personal uses. If you are from the PDL and vote for Udrea and Boc, you’ll get funds. If you are not a member of PDL, or even if you are, but do not vote for Boc, then you are denied the right to accede to public funds,” Ponta stated. The PSD leader is persuaded that “whoever wins the elections in PDL, Romania will be on the losing side.”
