Incidents during Liberal youth march

The members of the National Liberal Party’s youth organization staged, on Saturday evening, a march in Bucharest, marking the organization’s Congress. Participants had an argument with the representatives of the Gendarmerie. More explicitly, the Liberal senior Dinu Zamfirescu, alongside the newly-elected president of the National Liberal Youth (TNL), Florin Alexe, had an argument with the Gendarmerie representatives, while trying to set up a number of “stakes” in front of the Government headquarters, in Victoria Square.

Represen­tatives of the Gendarmerie stated that the protocol signed with the Bucharest Mayor’s Office, regar­ding the organization of the march, did not stipulate the participants’ passing by the Government and pointed them to the area left of the Victoria Palace. Following the intervention of Liberal leader Crin Anto­nescu and Varujan Vosganian, the “stakes” were set up in the area indicated by the gendarmes.  Attending the Liberal Youth Congress, Crin Antonescu criticized, in his speech, the present ruling coalition, as well as a number of intellectuals. “It has to be said, once and for all, that neither I, nor most of the Liberal leaders, neither Victor Ponta, nor Daniel Constantin, were ever members of the Romanian Communist Party, unlike Traian Basescu, Emil Boc, Andrei Plesu or Vladimir Tismaneanu,” Antonescu stated.
