Lawyer Gheorghe Piperea has confirmed that the Liberals have offered him the leadership of PNL Bucharest.
“Friends, I recently received a somewhat surprising offer from PNL, that of taking over the leadership of the party’s Bucharest branch. It’s a challenge. However, bearing in mind the multiple projects I am involved in, as well as the outlook of a further cutback in the time spent with my family (which is insufficient as it is), I’m telling you I haven’t accepted the proposal yet,” Piperea wrote on his Facebook page on Wednesday evening.
The lawyer emphasised that he did not raise “under any form” the condition of holding an office in order to accept the offer, “as could be interpreted from press scenarios and speculations.”
“I assure you I do not like either the current type of politics, anachronistic and nit-picking, or many of the tired political faces who, for the sake of the national interest and for the well-being of future generations, should take 10 steps back. At any rate, if I were to decide to get involved in such a project, I would keep the duo with Dan Zamfir (the lawmaker who drafted the debt discharge law – editor’s note). It’s obvious that it was a successful pact and not an ephemeral sleight of hand,” the lawyer concluded.
PNL Bucharest is leaderless after Catalin Predoiu resigned as a result of PNL’s failure in local elections in Bucharest.
