Orban: Antonescu should run for PM, not for President

Liberal MP Ludovic Orban considers that the Liberals should be the ones that will lead a future USL government and should impose predominantly right-wing policies and that Crin Antonescu should run in the race for the Prime Minister’s office, not for President as initially convened by the USL representatives when they signed the protocol between PSD and PNL (Crin Antonescu – President, Victor Ponta – Premier, editor’s note). “Today Romania needs a Liberal government. All analysts state that the austerity measures, the measures meant to lower public expenditures, are not enough to overcome the crisis, with there being instead a need for Liberal measures, measures meant to stimulate the economy, the investments and consumption. PNL should vie for the Prime Minister’s office,” Orban stated, being quoted by realitatea.net. He also underlined that according to the USL protocol the party that does not nominate the Prime Minister nominates the President, suggesting that PSD’s President could be the Union’s Presidential candidate. “Especially since I’ve seen Mr. Ponta starting to grow impressively in several optimistic scenarios,” the Liberal stated.
