Victor Ponta claims that for him 2014 was a year from which he can learn more from defeats than from victories. “It was a long year, it was a difficult year, it was a year of good things, it was a year with wrong things also for me a year from which I can learn more from defeats than victories I had. The fact that we face a year in which everyone can understand that we have a golden opportunity to prove that those who died 25 years ago did not die in vain and that we have learned not only from the bad things , but also from good things as we have so much to do, “said the Prime Minister, in a Christmas message posted on his Facebook page. The Premier said that in the 25 years that have passed since the 1989 Revolution, Romania has changed for the better, but also considered that there are still many things to do.
In the message published on Wednesday, Victor Ponta speaks of the “special significance” which the feast of the Nativity has this year. “This year, Christmas has a special meaning: 25 years since the Revolution, when young and less young people gave their life when we really changed a system, the communist system. I think every time with a certain nostalgia that I had high school classmates, teachers , neighbors, friends and we all thought then what extraordinary thing we achieve: to get rid of communism, to have a different life. I hope that many of our hopes from that time will not be in vain. Meanwhile, in the 25 years, I say with conviction, that we have changed for good, that the country has changed for the better, but we still have so many things to do, “continued the Prime Minister. Victor Ponta wished Romanians and “all the people of this world” a good year-end and Merry Christmas. “I wish you all Merry Christmas! I wish you all to be happy with your loved ones and that in 2015 all of us to be better. (…) Happy New Year and Happy Holidays!”, says the Prime Minister in his message posted on his Facebook page on Wednesday.
