Gabriela Firea does not rule out reconciliation with Basescu. On one condition
Senator Gabriela Firea does not rule out the possibility of reconciliation with the former President, nonetheless, she pointed out, she expected for starters that Basescu would acknowledge his mistake.”
“If the ex-President really means what he says, I will not answer him by impulse, but I will seek advice of my lawyer and family, yet, I still have not heard from his behalf any public regrets on what he had said. I never wanted to file a complaint against anyone, especially against the President of the state, but those words affected me, both personally and as a member of the Parliament, especially that they came from a man who has two daughters and who has promoted many women in politics”, Gabriela Firea declared for stiripesurse.ro.
PSD Senator Gabriela Firea submitted a criminal complaint on April 16, 2014, accusing the Head of the State at that time Traian Basescu of threat and blackmail based on statements he had made at a TV show.

Plenty of bad things are happening in his parish, so I have heard’.”
