Ex-presidential aide Lazaroiu announces he will vote for Monica Macovei

Former presidential aide Sebastian Lazaroiu has announced on his Facebook page that he will vote for Monica Macovei in the presidential elections, pointing out that if she were to win the elections that would be the start of a political change within the political class. “My argument is rational. If Monica Macovei were to win these presidential elections it would be the start of a change within the political class. Because politicians, like any other “species,” imitate the successful model,” Lazaroiu stated.
Sebastian Lazaroiu, a member of the Popular Movement Foundation, is not the only person close to Traian Basescu who announces his support for a candidate other than the one that the Head of State backs, namely PMP leader Elena Udrea. Thus, just a day before, Marian Preda, the dean of the Bucharest University’s Sociology Faculty and former president of the Popular Movement Foundation, announced in a video message posted on Facebook that he will back Monica Macovei in the presidential race.
Sebastian Lazaroiu was presidential aide from 2007 to 2011. In 2012 he returned to the Presidential Palace and resigned when President Traian Basescu was suspended. Having returned at the Presidential Palace after the failure of the impeachment referendum, Lazaroiu was released from office by President Basescu in January 2014.
According to the latest INSCOP poll ordered by ‘Adevarul’ daily, 50 per cent of Romanians would vote a woman for president. In what concerns the possibility that a woman might be Romania’s president, 42.9 per cent of Romanians consider it is less important whether the president is a man or a woman, 38.1 per cent state that a woman would not be suitable for the supreme office, while 11.9 per cent state that a woman is more suitable for this office than a man. According to the same poll, 47.5 per cent of Romanians state that they would vote for a woman president, while 40.8 per cent would not.
