The Social Democrat Party (PSD) has started a crucial week that might change the course of politics. Number 2 in the PSD hierarchy, Liviu Dragnea, is now facing the final verdict at the High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ) and a possible repeating of the ballot in Dan Sova’s case may be ordered by the Constitutional Court.
On Wednesday, ICCJ will issue the final verdict in the Referendum File, in which prosecutors had demanded a punishment with execution for Liviu Dragnea. “Accusations are based on a completely wrong foundation. Nobody will dare to order anyone a ballot now”, Liviu Dragnea declared, mentioning that the right to vote is profoundly democratic.
“We consider that the witnesses proposed by the defence had discussed ahead of time with the defendant to agree on what they would say in court”, the prosecutor working on the case declared. He mentioned that the undeserved benefit sought by Dragnea was reaching the quorum at the referendum.
The Constitutional Court will reunite on Wednesday as well, to reach a decision related to the constitutionality of the Senate decision that shows Senators overruled ceasing Dan Sova’s immunity. Court President Augustin Zegrean declared that, if the decision is pronounced void, the ballot could be repeated in the Senate. Victor Ponta’s close collaborator, Dan Sova is accused by the Opposition that he knows many compromising things about Victor Ponta and this is why PSD refuses to hand him over to the National Anti-Corruption Directorate (DNA).
Both Liviu Dragnea and Dan Sova competed for the position of PSD President in case Victor Ponta had won the Presidential elections as a candidate of PSD.
