Opposition demands the Premier’s resignation for solidarity with felons

The leader of PDL deputies Tinel Gheorghe said Prime Minister Victor Ponta must resign after the National Anti-Corruption Directorate (DNA) released the shorthand reports revealing that chairman of Mehedinti County Council Adrian Duicu, currently under arrest for 30 days, carried out influence peddling from the very office of PM Ponta.
“If he has dignity, Victor Ponta should urgently resign from the Government because the act of corruption infiltrated in his office. Victor Ponta is increasingly following the path taken by Adrian Nastase. That is what he does since he was appointed prime minister,” said Gheorghe Tinel during a press conference, quoted by Mediafax.
He said Ponta “is not the prisoner of the local tycoons, but became part of the corruption system generated by these tycoons.”
As for MEP Cristian Preda, top of the list of Popular Movement Party for the elections on May 25, he is demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Ponta for “his solidarity with Adrian Duicu and Mayor Radu Mazare.
“On behalf of the Popular Movement, I demand the resignation of Victor Ponta for solidarity with Duicu and Mazare. I am positive, however, that this demand will not pass the blockade set by the media over the past days, regarding any gesture from the EP candidates. Although this is not an election campaign, we have to face sort of an embargo. I have no explanations for this strategy of the Romanian media. I notice that things are different in the other European states, where any statement of a candidate is hunted down by the media and turned inside out,” said MEP Cristian Preda.
PSD leader Victor Ponta said publicly that he will not renounce chairman of Mehedinti County Council and other leaders of county councils under DNA scrutiny, who have problems, “only because they come from counties where PSD has a very good situation.”
