Prime Minister Victor Ponta says he wants his Social Democrat Party (PSD) to be the first one that reforms itself.
Speaking at the party’s headquarters on Friday, he announced proposals of clear statutory provisions for the party members subject to major offense investigations.
‘We need to prepare the National Council to be held on March 20-21; there we will adopt some modifications – radical ones, from my point of view. Actually, I will propose some radical changes in the organization of the Social Democrat Party, in the way we relate, especially with criminal investigations; I mean very clear statutory provisions on what happens to our colleagues – myself included, if the case arises, to all PSD members, if there are criminal investigation; and including the reorganization side, so that next year we are the first party that understood and reformed itself,’ Ponta declared.
He mentioned he also wanted changes in the Law on political parties and ‘a much more open and fair system, to really have a political society much more open than it has been so far.’
