PNL Co-President Alina Gorghiu has stated that she is not surprised by the attacks launched against her by Calin Popescu-Tariceanu, Victor Ponta and Liviu Dragnea, claiming that they are trying to pressure her because of their different views on the anticorruption fight.
“Their attacks do not surprise me. It’s the way in which they and their camp are trying to put pressure. The reason? Different view on the anticorruption fight. While PNL supports, through all undertakings, holding accountable those who abused their public offices, they position themselves at the opposite end. Their whole activity in the offices held and their public stances prove this,” Gorghiu wrote on Facebook on Wednesday.
She added that the recent statements are another proof of the fact that Calin Popescu-Tariceanu’s decision to part ways with PNL was auspicious for the latter.
“Consequently, I’m not bothered being called names by Tariceanu, Ponta, Dragnea. Each attack on me or on PNL means yet another confirmation of the fact that I’m in the right camp,” the PNL leader wrote.
ALDE Co-President Calin Popescu-Tariceanu stated on Tuesday in Giurgiu that when he looks at PNL he sees less and less a party with which his own could have a dialogue.
“We, as a political party, have to bear in mind the electorate’s priorities, but we also have to have some principles to relate to and the fundamental principles toward which we, ALDE, are relating to are the principles of liberalism, which are based on the appreciation of individual rights and liberties. When I look at PNL I see less and less a party with which we could talk, a party that no longer has anything to do with the liberal values of democracy, liberal in the wide sense of the word, they are happy when they are hearing the rattle of handcuffs. This makes me think of the 1950s-1960s, when I see Ms. Gorghiu it’s as if seeing the modern version of Ana Pauker,” Tariceanu stated.
PNL-Piedone juxtaposition was unfortunate and stopped
PNL Co-President Alina Gorghiu stated on Monday that she found out from the press about the “unfortunate juxtaposition” between Razvan Sava, PNL’s candidate for the Bucharest District 4 Mayoralty, and former District 4 Mayor Cristian Popescu Piedone. The PNL leader pointed out that this “collaboration” has ended.
“It was an unfortunate juxtaposition. Razvan Sava alongside Cristian Piedone is an unfortunate juxtaposition and it ended,” Alina Gorghiu said.
“I don’t have to take measures that I should publicly reveal,” she pointed out. “You no longer saw them together and you will not see them together again,” Gorghiu added, pointing out that she “did not have the pleasure to find out about this collaboration beforehand,” finding out from the press instead.
Razvan Sava, PNL’s candidate for the Bucharest District 4 Mayoralty, announced last week, on Facebook, that former District 4 Mayor Cristian Popescu Piedone decided to back him in the mayoral race. He pointed out that PNL continues to support its list of candidates for the Local Council, while Piedone supports the list of his party, PPUSL.
No maternal leave
PNL Co-President Alina Gorghiu came back to work less than ten days after childbirth, ‘Jurnalul National’ daily shows. The politician is hard-pressed by the rapidly approaching local elections, and is getting actively involved in the elections campaign.
“I’m wearing high heels, I haven’t for the past year. I’m fine, I’m feeling very well, I have to handle political affairs too,” these were the first statements made by the PNL Co-President when arriving at the Lower Chamber.
“Grandma is at home, grandpa was at home, Isar (Lucian Isar, Alina Gorghiu’s husband – editor’s note) is home when I’m not, for example he’s now at home. I’ll stay half an hour in Parliament, I’ll go back, breastfeed the baby and then he leaves,” Gorghiu told journalists who asked her how the politician who recently became a mother is handling the situation.
