The leadership of the Bucharest chapter of the National Liberal Party (PNL) is recommending Razvan Sava to replace interim Bucharest General Mayor Stefanel-Dan Marin, after Marin’s removal from office by councillors.
In a press statement released on Tuesday, PNL says Razvan Sava, the party’s representative with the Bucharest General Mayoralty, was appointed by PNL Bucharest to take over the office of deputy mayor and implicitly the interim general mayor office.
The PNL Bucharest leadership decided to start off the necessary procedures to mount a new majority at the Bucharest City General Council under an agreement with Bucharesters initiated by the party and for supporting the party’s representative for interim general mayor.
“The National Liberal Party is consistent with the agreement for Bucharesters proposed to the General Council and the civil society and it will conduct all the necessary procedures for the agreement to be observed and implemented,” reads the statement.
Bucharest interim general mayor Stefanel-Dan Marin was removed from the office of interim Bucharest general mayor at a meeting of the General Council of the Bucharest Mayoralty (CGMB) on Tuesday afternoon.
“The removal of Marin Stefanel-Dan from the position of deputy mayor of Bucharest is hereby approved. The CGMB Decision no. 167/2015 on the appointment of the deputy mayor of the Bucharest General Mayoralty to take over the office of general mayor is hereby abrogated,” reads the decision adopted on Tuesday, 37 to 5 votes and 3 abstentions.
The National Liberal Party’s (PNL) general councillor Alexandru Ionescu said after the meeting that he reproached Stefanel-Dan Marin mishandling the issues at two public companies: district heating corporation RADET and public transportation corporation RATB.
