USL distributes Bucharest colleges: PNL gets the bulk in District 3

Former premier Calin Popescu Tariceanu was made the proposal to stand for either deputy or senator, on the slot vacated by PNL President Crin Antonescu.

The leaders of the Social Liberal Union (USL) concluded negotiation on electoral college allocations in the capital  with the Center-Right Alliance  – ACD <made up of the National Liberal Party ( PNL) and the Conservative Party ( PC)> And the Center-Left Alliance  – ACS (consisting of the Social-Democratic Party (PSD) and the National Union for the Progress of Romania ( UNPR)>. The negotiations resulted in Liberals getting the bulk of the legislative candidates in District 3 and giving up on the Senate College where Crin Antonescu had been elected senator. In District 1, PNL will take over three Chamber of Deputies colleges, while the PSD will only have one.  With respect to Senate colleges, PSD and PC got two each, Mediafax quoted legislative sources as saying. In the 2008 elections, Crin Antonescu ran for senator in a District 1 college, which the Liberals now yielded to the PC.In District 2, PSD and UNPR can assign candidates in three Chamber of Deputies colleges and a Senate one respectively, while the PNL will get two in the former and one in the latter.District 3 is where the bulk of the Liberal candidates, three, will stand for Chamber of Deputies seats, and a Senate college, where Crin Antonescu will be the most likely runner. In its turn, PSD was allotted three colleges in District 3, two for the Lower and one for the Upper House respectively.   In district 4, conservatives will nominate their candidates in two Chamber of Deputies colleges and one Senate college respectively. PSD candidates will run in another two Chamber of Deputies colleges and a Senate college. District 5 is where the Social-Democrat candidates for Parliament will be most numerous, as three for deputies and two for Senate. PNL will only have a deputy seat to run for in that very district. In District 6, PSD and PNL have been allocated two deputy colleges each and the PC, one. PNL and the PSD Senate colleges are one each.The UNPR seats are included in those negotiated by the PSD.

Former PM Tariceanu offered District 1 candidature

According to the “Gandul” daily newspaper, District 1Liberals prosed that former premier Calin Popescu Tariceanu should be the party’s District 1candidate for either deputy, or senate, for the seat vacated by PNL president Crin Antonescu.At negotiations with the USL, Liberals got three deputy colleges and one for senator, the PSD, one each for the Lower and the Upper House, and the PC, one for Senate.  If matters have been settled at the PSD, with PSD District 1 Organization President Dan Tudorache to run for deputy in College no 4, and Foreign Minister Titus Corlatean for senator in College 1,  Liberals and Conservatives are still negotiating a Senate college.Dumitru Pelican is the Conservatives’ Senate nominee for the position vacated by Crin Antonescu, an alternative that stirred discontent in the District 1 Liberal camp.  Eventually, Conservatives appeared inclined to give up on the Senate college, in exchange for a college in another district. In District 1, PNL picked his deputy nominees: Ludovic Orban – college 3 and Diana Tusa – college 2. Calin Popescu Tariceanu was offered a Senate or Chamber of Deputies college. The former premier however has recently said he could run in that same Ilfov Co college he did in 2008.Despite it, District 1 Liberal Mayor Andrei Chiliman told Mediafax that the Standing Delegation voted Calin Popescu Tariceanu as a senator nominee for that district, a mutual initiative.
