President Klaus Iohannis believes the ongoing electoral campaign for the general election due 11 December “is not that dynamic”, adding that the absence of electoral activities shows that Romania needs a reform of the political class.
“The electoral campaign is not very dynamic and I believe that once again we could notice why we need a reform of the political class. We need new people, experienced people. I believe we could give them a chance. Maybe they had a weaker start and some better weeks will follow,” the president said.
He was asked what he thought about the fact that Liviu Dragnea said he was concerned about the “organization and coordination” of the parliamentary elections of 11 December.
“Even him?” said Iohannis smilingly, without adding further comment.
