Co-chair of the Opposition National Liberal Party (PNL) Alina Gorghiu says Prime Minister Victor Ponta ‘has ordered a vote for himself at the plenary session of the Chamber of Deputies in order to escape justice.’
”I have seen today a coward premier that violates his own commitments, a premier who despises the law and Romanians. In just two days, with a speed unmet in the case of no other parliamentarian, Victor Ponta has ordered a vote for himself at the plenary session of the Chamber of Deputies to escape justice. Unfortunately, Victor Ponta is a beggar for immunity and a politician with no dignity. From now on, people can see even clearer that Victor Ponta is a prime minister that is sick with power who does anything to stay in office,’ Gorghiu wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday after the Chamber of Deputies voted against the criminal investigation of Ponta.
She added that the PNL MPs cast an open vote in favour of the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA).
‘But our votes were not enough. This majority has unfortunately sided with Ponta instead of with Romania. Parliament keeps on losing citizen’s credibility; that is the risk against Romanian democracy, not some imaginary coups d’état,’ added Gorghiu.
“We shall talk with ambassadors about our draft on correspondence voting”
National Liberal Party (PNL) co-chair Alina Gorghiu on Tuesday said that in the discussion Liberals will have with several ambassadors accredited in Bucharest the main topic will be the draft law on the correspondence voting and that there will not be political talks.
“It will be a technical meeting. We won’t have political talks with our guests from the embassies. The discussion is related to our draft law on the correspondence voting. Our guests are ambassadors from European states where we have a developed diaspora, where we have Romanians who should be represented and should know they can exercise their elective franchise. It will be a discussion on the draft law and an experience exchange with the legislation of the European countries of the ambassadors in question, therefore there will be no talks about the topic or the incredible situation in which Victor Ponta places Romania,” Gorghiu said at the Palace of Parliament.
She added that the reason for which PNL filed the censure motion to be debated and voted on Friday will also be discussed.
The PNL leaders on Tuesday, at 16,00, will meet foreign ambassadors accredited in Bucharest, Agerpres informs.
