Lia Olguta Vasilescu claims that she will certainly run for a new term as leader of the Mayoralty in Craiova, for the local elections of June 5.
“I understand that, in the last few days, a telephone-based opinion poll was conducted on 1,000 voters and I have 82% of them, in this opinion poll. (…). I will definitely run again. Last year, I had a hesitation, but I want to complete all my projects. I have a stadium in construction, I have a municipal hospital, I have a residential neighbourhood in construction, all these projects are 100% mine and I want to complete them. They will be finished this autumn. I do not want to feel this as a loss in any way and I do not want anyone to take it as my personal failure. I know that hard times are to come because, perhaps, this lesson will not go unpunished, but I am willing to, because I want to finish these projects for the inhabitants of Craiova”, the Social-Democrat declared for a TV station on Wednesday evening.
