The National Liberal Party (PNL) marked on Friday 26 years since its re-establishment.
“On January 15, 1990, through the Bucharest Court’s ruling, the National Liberal Party reappeared officially on the Romanian political stage. Back then, a dark period in the history of the party ended, in which the Romanian liberalism had to survive only at consciousness level,” reads a release for Agepres.
According to the cited source, the role that PNL assumed in the 26 years since the fall of communism was to invalidate the totalitarian model that functioned in Romania for almost half a century.
“Throughout the entire post-revolutionary period, PNL has struggled for achieving a free society, based on the principles of democracy and the rule of law. (…) In its history of 140 years, the National Liberal Party’s central objective was the modernization of the Romanian state and we, today’s liberals, have remained loyal to it,” the release also reads.
