Presidential adviser Gabriel Berca told Mediafax yesterday that he had resigned as a member of the Democratic Liberal Party (PDL) as he could not accept the ‘fixed game at the Bacau organisation, with the knowledge of Gheorghe Flutur’, and said the interim leaders of the organisation had been appointed under an ‘agreement with USL’. Berca noted that, as a presidential adviser, he had not the right to occupy any lead positions in his party. He explained that he had resigned as President of the PDL Bacau Organisation when he became the president’s adviser. President Traian Basescu appointed Gabriel Berca as his adviser at the end of March, effective as of April 1. Gabriel Berca was Minister of Administration and Interior in the Ungureanu Cabinet. He was also Secretary General of the Government when Calin Popescu Tariceanu was Prime Minister. PDL Secretary General Gheorghe Flutur, in turn, said yesterday, commenting on the resignation of presidential adviser Gabriel Berca from PDL, that it was the test of loyalty to the party, as PDL was in full process of reconstruction, with a weekly time-table for restoring branches in the country. Berca is not the only person who resigned from PDL yesterday. MP Valerian Vreme also did the same thing. He explained his decision by the fact that he could no longer find himself in the steps currently being taken by the party leaders and said he would continue his activity as an independent MP until he decided to join another political party.
