National Union for Romania’s Progress (UNPR) Chairman Gabriel Oprea in Sinaia on Saturday said that the group he heads “fully” supports the Government headed by Victor Ponta as Prime Minister and Social Democratic Party (PSD) Chairman, saying that the Progressists are “serious people” who don’t “knock down” the governments they are part of.
“I am friend with Vasile Blaga. He was Interior Minister, we are friends, he is a very serious man. I haven’t met with Mr Vasile Blaga. On the other hand, we have replied this question. A government headed by Victor Ponta, as Prime Minister and as PSD Chairman, has our full support,” Deputy Prime Minister Gabriel Oprea told a press conference, when asked if he was contacted by the National Liberal Party (PNL) leaders for negotiations aimed at supporting a censure motion.
Gabriel Oprea said that, during the meeting with the MPs and the presidents of county organisations having taken place in Sinaia, they reiterated the unity of the UNPR political project, based on the national interest.
“It was a very good meeting, the unity of our political project was reiterated, a simple political project, based on the national interest. We, the UNPR, have contributed to Romania’s economic and political stability over the past five years, which speak for themselves. We are serious people, we don’t knock down the governments we are part of,” Gabriel Oprea underscored.
