Adrian Semcu, president of the Prahova branch of the National Liberal Party (PNL) resigned his post Friday evening, after a four-hour session also attended by the party’s president, Crin Antonescu, Mediafax reports. “It was my personal decision, I resigned my post as president since I arrived at the conclusion that we will enter an electoral campaign that will be quite stressful and require a great deal of time. I may not be the right person for it,” Semcu said. According to party sources, Antonescu attended the extraordinary session of PNL Prahova after 14 members, including a deputy, four country councillor and two local councillors had sent a letter to the PNL central leadership asking for the current branch leadership to be replaced, given alleged county-level cooperation with the Democrat Liberal Party (PDL). After Semcu announced his resignation, Antonescu thanked him for his activity and made the point Semcu would stay on as a member of the PNL central leadership. Asked to comment on the accusations regarding a supposed collaboration between the PNL and the PDL at the level of Prahova County, Antonescu expressed his confidence that all the PNL members are aware the party’s battle is fought against the PDL.
