Gorghiu: Today’s Ponta looks exactly like last year’s Ponta who refused Diaspora’s voting rights

The National Liberal Party (PNL)  Co-President Alina Gorghiu  continues her attacks against Prime Minister Victor Ponta. She once again asked the Premier to organize partial elections and stated that today’s Ponta looks exactly like last year’s Ponta, the one who refused the right to vote of hundreds of thousands of Romanians living abroad.

The reaction comes after the Head of Government stated on Saturday that the current PNL looks like the old PDL and that the Liberals are only looking for scandals.

“Victor Ponta looks exactly like last year’s Victor Ponta, the one who refused the right to vote of hundreds of thousands of Romanian living abroad. Last year he did not set up sufficient voting centers, now he simply hides the ballot boxes. Two symptoms, the same diagnosis: fear of election results, fear of Romanians’ vote. For the PSD President, just like for many of his party colleagues, democracy is an optional exercise. Mr. Prime Minister, let the people vote, organize partial elections!” Alina Gheorghiu wrote on Sunday on her personal Facebook page.

In addition, on Monday morning Gorghiu posted a cover photo on her Facebook urging Ponta once again to organize partial elections and to allow people to vote.

This is not the first time when the PNL Co-President asks Victor Ponta to organize partial elections. Gorghiu previously warned the Premier that the Liberals will turn to the courts if the Head of Government does not organize partial elections.At this time, there are 26 vacant positions of Mayor, six of members of the parliament, three of County Council chairmen and two dismissed local councils.
