Co-Chairman of the National Liberal Party (PNL) Vasile Blaga said on Tuesday that the number of votes registered in Parliament for the appointment of Mihai Razvan Ungureanu to the helm of the Foreign Intelligence Service (SIE) would have been enough for the investiture of a full ruling line-up.
“The number of votes registered today would have been sufficient to support an entire government and I think you noticed that, except for PSD, Mr. Tariceanu’s party I even don’t know how to name, and PMP, the votes came from all the other parliamentary groups. So far we have demonstrated today PNL’s capability to pool votes cast when it comes to important matters; we cannot say more today, but for sure, the number of votes would have been enough to greenlight an entire government,” Blaga said in Parliament.
Gorghiu: I expected PSD not to be able to witness a new defeat in Parliament
National Liberal Party (PNL) co-chair Alina Gorghiu in a Facebook post says she expected the Social Democrats “not to be able to witness another defeat in Parliament,” thanking all MPS who through their presence and vote made possible the appointment of Mihai-Razvan Ungureanu as Foreign Intelligence Service (SIE) ehad.
“I expected PSD not to be able to assist another defeat in Romania’s Parliametn. And it is even funny that the PSD group leader invoked others’ speeches, except for the Ponta’s cordial speech addressed to Mihai-Razvan Ungureanu in 2012. Indeed, they had a series of failures; last week, a majority for the National Defence Strategy, now another majority for the appointment of the SIE head… we all know what comes next, only Ponta doesn’t want to believe or understand. Now I am thinking that, after he forced his MPs to a continuous boycott, he can come back home. Mostly since the parliamentary session has ended. But as they say: there is always room for an extraordinary session. I am thanking all my parliamentarian
