UNPR launched yesterday the Social Progressive Union (USP), a movement that plans to appeal to those that do not necessarily want to be party members. According to UNPR President Cristian Diaconescu, “USP plans to be a movement that appeals to all those that have centre-left views that they want to promote in society, beyond being political members.”
Asked what he thinks about the newly-launched USP, PNL President Crin Antonescu stated that its purpose is to create confusion among voters, because its name is similar to that of the Social Liberal Union (USL). “It’s none of my business if this group of people, you see what euphemisms I use when referring to Mr. Oprea and his clique, adopts a name similar to that of the Social Liberal Union, a name whose purpose is obviously that of creating confusion among voters.
At most it’s the business of the court that will give its approval for this and, after all, it’s the voters’ business to understand, to distinguish. We really do not worry over this,” Antonescu stated. He also accused Gabriel Oprea of using public funds in order to recruit MPs for UNPR. UNPR Presidents Gabriel Oprea, Marian Sarbu and Cristian Diaconescu, UNPR Secretary General Neculai Ontanu, numerous personalities and approximately 1,000 guests from all socio-professional categories were expected to attend the launch of the centre-left platform yesterday evening.
