National Liberal Party (PNL) co-chairperson Alina Gorghiu on Monday said that the censure motion topic, namely the correspondence voting, is not to be negotiated, adding that Victor Ponta would do “the impossible in order to not reach a vote with his MPs in the chamber” on this document.
“I not only find it a national interest topic, I find that this topic is not to be negotiated. We shall discuss about the censure motion form with each parliamentary group and with each parliament member, we shall discuss about adding some ideas and topics they find important because neither me not Vasile Blaga are close-minded to say that we have a censure motion project which cannot be improved, but changing the topic and giving up the idea of defending those in the diaspora for one or two additional votes is something I will never do,” the PNL leader told Realitatea TV private television broadcaster.
She underscored that correspondence voting is a very important topic.
“The voting in the diaspora is a topic that means defending a fundamental right. There would have been one million topics that we could have invoked in a censure motion – how the PSD [Social Democratic Party] reports to Justice, the Sova case, the tip taxing ordinance, everything you wish, because the series of governmental abuses has been constant, but I believe that the elective franchise is a project the PSD defied not only one time,” Gorghiu said.
The PNL co-chairperson also said that “Victor Ponta will do the impossible in order to not reach a vote with his MPs in the chamber” on the censure motion, arguing that he fears the debate on this topic.
She also made an appeal to the PSD MPs to vote the censure motion.
