Social Democratic Party (PSD) interim chairman Liviu Dragnea said on Saturday in Timisoara that the Left-of-Centre Alliance PSD entered with the National Union for Romania’s Progress (UNPR) in July 2012 for the parliamentary elections should be revitalized, given that Romania needs a strong Left.
“In my opinion, as far as alliances are concerned, the PSD + UNPR alliance should be revitalized and seriously considered.
UNPR proved to be a reliable partner, Gabriel Oprea proved to be a man of word, and Romania needs a strong Left,” Dragnea said.
Attending on Saturday in Timisoara the County Council meeting of the PSD Timis branch, alongside PSD-member mayors, Dragnea said he would want the local Social-Democrats to find a fitting candidate to win the office of Timisoara mayor. The participants in the meeting discussed aspects related to the future strategy of the 2016 election campaign.
Dragnea also said that he agreed of the proposal of PSD Timis chairman Sorin Grindeanu to hold an extraordinary PSD congress around October 15, allowing the party to reinforce and cruise into the election year 2016 with a stable leading structure.
“Time has come to prove concern lies in national interest, not political scandal”
Social Democratic Party (PSD) ad-interim chairman Liviu Dragnea told Agerpres on Friday that he rejects the accusation according to which he adversely affected the party image by promoting dialogue with political adversaries.
“After 10 years of politicking, of conflicts that tore Romania apart, that have placed Romanians at odds against one another, of losing many opportunities compromising country projects, all well maintained by Traian Basescu, the time has come to prove we are close to people, that what concerns us is not political scandals, but the national interest,” Dragnea explained while attending a a conference of the PSD Caras-Severin county branch
In that context, he mentioned that the Social Democrats will act for the country’s stability.
“Our wish for dialogue is upsetting. Through this political dialogue we offer Romanians the chance, regardless of their political appurtenance, to join another path, joining in those projects that aid economic and social development of communities and bring prosperity and peace to the people”, Dragnea added.
