PM Ponta: Three years ago, an abusive, corrupt regime’s government was ousted

Prime minister, Victor Ponta is inviting the MPs who three years ago have voted the censure motion which led to the dismissal of the government headed by Mihai-Razvan Ungureanu, to participate on Monday in an event on this issue to be staged at the Parliament Palace.

‘I invite all of the parliamentarians who have voted the April 27 2012’s motion to partake on Monday, at the Parliament Palace, in the ‘3 years since the beginning of the end of the Basescu – MRU – Predoiu regime’ event. Together we shall recall what the change of Romania’s course meant from the economic and social point of view!’ says Ponta on Sunday on his personal blog.

According to the Prime minister, three years ago was ‘a momentum in the post-December history of Romania.’

‘The government of an abusive, corrupt regime was ousted courtesy of the democratic mechanism of the censure motion by a coalition of the opposition parties. It was the first (and the only) time when such a change occurred in democratic Romania – censure motions have also been voted before (the Boc case), yet change of government, just once – three years ago!’ Ponta stresses.

In his opinion, ‘the Social Liberal Union (USL) alliance has given a huge kick to the Basescu-MRU-Predoiu regime, a kick to remain in the history books.’

‘To me, the Social Liberal Union has been and will remain the most important and strongest political project of Romania. No matter what followed, it has probably achieved the utmost project of the past years: it brought justice to the millions of Romanians oppressed by a very damaging regime! Which is why I wish we’d mark together that historical moment,’ Victor Ponta concluded, according to Agerpres.
