The National Union for Romania’s Progress (UNPR) believes that a political crisis can endanger “to a serious degree the country’s national interest” and points out that the option of the Union members “has been and remains that of continuing the governance and fair political partnership both with Prime Minister Victor Ponta and with President Klaus Iohannis, mainly concerning the projects related to national security and foreign policy.”
“In the current political and security context in the Black Sea region, UNPR believes that a political crisis can seriously endanger the national interest of our country and reiterates the will to act in the interest of ensuring governmental stability. Romania needs continuity in the governance act, to go further on the path of economic growth and of increase in the living standard which it took up three years ago. We find that it is absolutely necessary for Romania to remain politically stable, as this is the essential condition to welfare for all citizens. This requires stable governance, which should properly answer to the citizens’ expectations concerning the advance of the living standard and Romania’s modernisation. The results of the governance are good, acknowledged by our institutional partners in Romania and abroad and proven through the most recent economic indicators,” shows a UNPR release remitted to Agerpres on Friday.
The Union underscores that, in the current regional security context, Romania cannot afford back steps in the political, economic and social area and shows it will not comment upon the National Anti-corruption Directorate (DNA) decision on starting the criminal investigation procedure against Prime Minister Victor Ponta.
“UNPR respects the independence of justice and will not comment upon the DNA decision on starting the criminal investigation against Victor Ponta. Equally, as fair partner, UNPR will not comment either upon the manner in which the Prime Minister will choose to act in respect with this situation. UNPR remains true to its principles and believes that the priority of all political leaders of Romania is to ensure the maintenance of the institutional and economic stability,” the cited release also shows.
