Co-chair of the Opposition National Liberal Party (PNL) Alina Gorghiu and PNL members Teodor Atanasiu, Ovidiu Raetchi and Cornel Piperea on Friday signed a popular motion called “Sign Ponta’s resignation!”
Gorghiu said she wants her signature to be the beginning of the end of Victor Ponta.
“I see this as more than a symbolic action; I see it as a necessary and useful action that will show even to District 5 of Bucharest that the Ponta Cabinet is toxic and Prime Minister Ponta must be dismissed with support of people everywhere. We have come today to sign for the dismissal of Victor Ponta in Bucharest District 5. This is an important locale to me, a symbolic one, because I represent College 22 of District 5 and I want my signature to mean the beginning of the end of Victor Ponta,” said Gorghiu, according to Agerpres.
“This is a popular motion. In my opinion, the Prime Minister was once dismissed last year in the presidential election and then by a significant number of signatures PNL managed to collect in this campaign. I am convinced we can safely say he has been dismissed a second time. The fact that Victor Ponta refuses to tender his resignation reeks of despair,” said Gorghiu.
She added that the Liberals want to collect at least one million signatures for the popular motion.
She said PNL will hand Ponta the signatures when the campaign is over.
“We intend to keep the campaign going until Victor Ponta gives signs he wants to resign,” said Gorghiu.
As far as a motion of censure also of PNL is concerned, Gorghiu said the matter is settled while details of it will be established at the beginning of the new parliamentary session.
