PNL First Vice President and Sibiu Mayor Klaus Johannis stated yesterday during a press conference that President Traian Basescu is “a biased President” that “has never been objective, independent and above party interests.” “Did he ever leave politics? Has he ever been that objective, independent and above party interests President? Never. He has always been biased. He even sided with PDL, he even had a puppet government, he played the role of the opposition when USL came to power. He has always been in politics and will remain there,” Johannis stated, being quoted by realitatea.net. He stated that he was not surprised by the President’s recent statement according to which he will not retire from politics. On the other hand, Johannis stated that one of the reasons he joined PNL was for Sibiu to become the seat of a region. He stated that he will do everything he can to achieve this, although the office he holds within the party does not guarantee success.
