Save Romania Union (USR) leader Nicusor Dan stated that Premier Dacian Ciolos has confirmed he will attend an event that USR will organise next week. At the event, the ‘Romania 100’ Platform will be debated along with the points USR wants included in the governing platform.
“After the Premier launched this platform, ‘Romania 100,’ we sent him an open letter in which we told him some of the things included in our platform, things that converge with what he expresses in his platform, things we would like to see included in the governing platform. He confirmed he will be present at an event we will organise next week. At the event, we will discuss these two things – the ‘Romania 100’ platform and the things we want to include in the governing platform. (…) We will have a direct meeting at that event,” USR President Nicusor Dan pointed out.
He reiterated that USR will not form electoral alliances or post-elections alliances and will not negotiate Government portfolios.
“This doesn’t mean that if we have the right people they will not become members [of the future Government],” Nicusor Dan admitted.
He added he will discuss with the designated Premier each minister nominated, since USR will not guarantee they will give “blank cheques to people that may have committed errors or engaged in compromises in public life.”
Nicusor Dan pointed out there are ministers who are not “terribly” efficient as members of the current Government.
Premier Dacian Ciolos was present on Wednesday at PNL’s National Council meeting that validated him as the party’s nominee for the Premier’s office after the elections, stating that he was not there to promote himself but to back things he believes in, adding that the elections campaign will start on November 11 and he will not get involved in it.
Ciolos is expected to attend PNL’s public rally on Sunday afternoon.
