Women’s vote in the Nov. presidential elections could change Romania’s fate, presidential candidate Elena Udrea running under the banner of the People’s Movement Party (PMP), said on Tuesday in Pitesti
“Women must understand they play a major role at this moment in the society and their option can change Romania’s fate. Women’s vote can bring change to Romania. I wish that all women could allow themselves all that they want in this country, but for this to happen, the country should head to the right direction,” Elena Udrea told a press conference.
She also said she would like to reap the votes of the Romanian female voters, because her victory in the elections would be their success as well.
“I believe that at this time, women must no longer prove anything. Women are definitely as good in their professions as men are, they can have carriers as important and successful as men’s. If women decide to back a woman for the highest-ranking position in a state, the position of president, I think it will be a success of all women,” the PMP candidate said.
As regards the Social Democratic Party (PSD) and the latest events within the ruling party, Udrea said there is an internal fight to take over the leadership of the party both if Victor Ponta is elected president of Romania and if he loses the elections.
“They are already fighting for positions, who comes next after Victor Ponta. But in any one the scenarios, Victor Ponta will be removed from his position. If he becomes Romania’s president, there’s a battle to replace him, take over the leadership of the party … but also if he loses the elections, he will be removed and people in PSD are holding talks about the future leader of the party,” Udrea said.
In her opinion, the PSD chairman was forced to sanction the colleagues who damaged his public image, in order to show that he has control over the party.
She admitted that what is happening now within PSD is of major interest for the public opinion, because it’s a big party that can influence Romania’s development.
