The leaders of USL met last weekend at a Danube Delta resort, where they completed the splitting of constituencies in view of the parliamentary elections set for December, among the member parties of the alliance: PSD, UNPR, PNL and PC. Meanwhile, in Bucharest, PDL, PNTCD and Forta Civica signed the protocol for the ‘Right Romania’ alliance meant to counter the USL.
PNL President Crin Antonescu announced Saturday that the USL parties completed the operation of allotting constituencies and submitted the result to vote in their respective National Executive Committees.
PSD President Victor Ponta said at country scale PSD and UNPR will have 246 candidates and the remaining constituencies will go to PNL-PC while in Bucharest USL will have 40 candidates, equally split – 20 each – between ACD PNL-PC and ACS PSD-UNPR.
Ponta said that the parties successfully passed the test of solidarity in the Union and that reason, common sense and common interest took precedence.
Democratic Liberal Party (PDL) President Vasile Blaga, Civic Force President Mihai Razvan Ungureanu and Christian Democratic National Peasants’ Party (PNTCD) representative Aurelian Pavelescu signed yesterday the protocol of the right-wing parties’ alliance.
Mihail Neamtu’s New Republic Party (PNR) should have been part of this new alliance but the party did not manage to join the alliance yet because it is not registered as a party for the time being Neamtu’s absence could however also be explained through the exchanges he had in recent weeks with Mihai Razvan Ungureanu and Elena Udrea.
Immediately after the signing of the protocol, an NGO called the Right Romania Association asked the alliance’s leaders to change the name of their political construct.
