Former president, Traian Basescu on Sunday stated, at Targu Jiu (NW of Bucharest) that “at the end of this month or in the first decade of October” he’ll join the People’s Movement Party (PMP), sustaining that he puts all of his “hopes and energy” in the success of this political formation to becoming a strong opposition party.
Basescu has participated in the Southwestern Oltenia area’s meeting of the PMP, where he told the hundreds of delegates from the counties of Mehedinti, Olt, Gorj, Dolj and Valcea about the party’s outlook.
“We are at the beginning of building a new party, that is not willing to compromise. I believe it is the party of the future. I can see that the Social Democrat Party (PSD, major at rule – editor’s note) is about to achieve its golden dream, the peace. The liberal opposition is so kind with the PSD that I believe that these so-called large parties, have made an invitation to us, to be a strong opposition party, striving to get to power after the 2016 elections. My belief is that, should we be consistent to the principles which have already been transmitted to the territory as regards the selection of the people for the local elections, for counsellors and mayors, for the legislative elections in the vote on the list, considering all this I’m certain the PMP will make it. (…) I’m sorry that after finishing my tenure I left no political legacy, too, a party to represent the future for Romania. That is why I put all my hope and energy in the success of this party which I’ll join at end-September or in the first decade of October,” Traian Basescu concluded, according to Agerpres.
