PNL Co-president Alina Gorghiu said in an interview for ziarulring.ro that she would give up anything to fulfil her dream of becoming a mother. The MP however admitted to time being her biggest enemy and said she could hardly take care of her personal life.
‘I manage to take care of myself every now and then. But I am not complaining, because I knew what I was getting myself into when I became a politician. On the other hand, I didn’t expect the dramas I experienced as a woman to be politically exploited in such a low manner. I love children and I have always wanted at least one of my own. So far, I haven’t been that lucky. I would give up anything for being a mother but, unfortunately, this is something that is not down to will. Of course, fate will soon help me obtain this’, Alina Gorghiu says.
The assertion was a bit of a surprise, as the lawyer and politician has built the image of a strong woman, very committed to the party she led ad with high ambitions in that respect.
Alina Gorghiu is 37 years old, has been a member of PNL for 12 years and is the youngest president in the entire history of the National Liberal Party, but also the first woman in that position.
On Ponta’s resignation of PSD: It’s like ‘surgery on the wrong leg’
PNL Co-president Alina Gorghiu has announced that her party had gathered 200,000 signatures for the dismissal of Victor Ponta and noted that a long knives night would soon happen in PSD, referring to a possible congress of the Social-Democrats.
Gorghiu said on RFI Romania on Wednesday that PNL hoped to gather one million signatures for dismissing PM Victor Ponta by the beginning of September. However, she admitted to it being a symbolic action without any legal consequences.
‘We, PNL, are conducting a campaign for collecting signatures in all counties, a campaign designed to generate people’s support for our idea of dismissing Ponta. So far we have gathered almost 200,000 signatures nationwide, but, obviously, the campaign continues. (…) We hope to have one million signatures by September’, the Liberal leader said.
In her opinion, Ponta’s resignation as head of PSD as unique reaction to his legal problem is like ‘surgery on the wrong leg’, because it is too little important if Ponta is or is not the president of PSD. ‘The real problem is if the gentleman continues as the Prime-Minister of Romania or not (…). There will soon definitely be a long knives night in PSD, against Victor Ponta and his entourage’, Gorghiu further said.
