PNL’s Predoiu: Nominating Teodorovici shows Ponta reached improvisation stage
First deputy chair of the National Liberal Party Catalin Predoiu stated for Agerpres that the nomination of Eugen Teodorovici for the Finance Ministry shows that Victor Ponta has reached “the last stage, that of improvisation”.
“PSD [Social Democrat Party] refused Ponta and then he turned to friends. Ponta started by leading a PSD government and will soon end governing by leading a government of friends.
