PSD and PC, about to break Iasi agreement

Heated discussions erupted between Social-Democrats and Conservatives after the Social Democratic Party and the Conservative Party (PC) failed to reach common ground on the local election candidate in Iasi, where the Social-Liberal Union (USL) is currently represented by Gheorghe Nichita (PSD) and Tudor Ciuhodaru (PC). The PSD president himself, Victor Ponta, led the chorus of critics, saying that the PC is likely to go in the local election all alone, describing the situation in Iasi as abnormal and against the idea behind the setting up of the USL. “I don’t rule out the alternative for the PC to run separately in the elections eventually, although in special cases, we could endorse a certain candidate. The Conservative mayor of Bucharest’s district 4, to give you one example, is good at what he does and we may endorse him,” Mediafax quoted Ponta as saying. In his turn, PC president Daniel Constantin holds that his party complies with both internal decisions and the pledges made to the USL, adding that the Union established to have joint runners for city halls and county councils, with Iasi’s exception, where conservatives are resolute to back Tudor Ciuhodaru: “Everybody has accepted this solution, including Victor Ponta, who, in his wisdom, wishes for common ground being reached, and proposed, at negotiations predating the decision, for the PSD candidate to be supported by the National Liberal party (PNL) and the PC to run in the elections all by itself. This is therefore the USL’s decision”. Vasile Salaru, leader of PC Iasi, was more caustic about the matter at hand, saying it is the PC that will provide the mayor of Iasi, “will squash the local barons, with current mayor Gheorghe Nichita <PSD> first and foremost.”
