The People’s Movement Foundation said it was not taking any steps to become a political party, noting that it was making that specification ‘following the publication of false information in the media’ on the subject. ‘Following the publication in the media of false information suggesting that the People’s Movement Foundation was becoming a political party, the team of the Foundation makes the following specifications: The People’s Movement Foundation is not taking any steps in order to become a political party. From a legal point of view, such thing is impossible.
The founding members remain consistent with their intentions at the time when the foundation was set up, namely: create a platform of the civil society for debates of ideas, analyses and solutions to problems Romanian society is facing,’ reads a press release quoted by Mediafax. Presidential adviser Sebastian Lazaroiu writes on Facebook that the ‘sources’ heralding the transformation of the People’s Movement Foundation into a political party are from PDL.
