Udrea says electoral campaign lacks competition, considers Ponta and Iohannis are a tandem, not opponents

People’s Movement Party’s presidential candidate Elena Udrea sees no competition in the campaign for the November elections; she says favourite candidates Victor Ponta and Klaus Iohannis look rather like a tandem than opponents.
‘This campaign seems quite dull to me. I expected the main two candidates – as shown by the opinion polls now – Mr. Ponta and Mr. Iohannis show they’re in a competition. They rather look like a tandem. They hardly have reproaches for each other. I think this campaign should be an opportunity for voters choosing among those who really need their votes, and the candidates should present voters their own programmes. We should look at candidates’ programmes, not at continuous scandals on matters unrelated to what should happen in these days,’ Udrea said  at the national television TVR1 channel.
Asked whether she resents the lack of open debates among all candidates, she answered affirmatively and added that the main candidates are avoiding debates.
‘I have challenged Mr. Iohannis; the clock is ticking since Friday, I started a chronometer. I have firstly challenged Mr. Iohannis, supposedly the Opposition candidate, to a confrontation, to a debate in front of centre-right voters, in front of undecided voters, to show who the real Opposition candidate is, the true candidate that could and would defeat Victor Ponta in the second round. I have also challenged Victor Ponta to a debate since the beginning of the campaign,’ Udrea said.
According to her, Iohannis could cause two candidates of the former Social Liberal Union competing in the second round.
