The Save Romania Union (USR) will file a legal challenge against the Central Electoral Bureau’s (BEC) decision to reject the party’s logo in the elections, USR President Nicusor Dan stated on Saturday for News.ro. The leader of USR pointed out this concerns a different interpretation of the law and that he will also file a formal agreement through which he accepts USR using USB’s logo.
“The rejection of USR’s logo is the result of an ambiguity stemming from the merger process. At this moment, the merger between USB and USR is not finalised, the reason being that the laws are unclear,” Nicusor Dan stated for the aforementioned press agency.
He pointed out that USR chose one way of interpreting the law, while the BEC chose another one.
