Deputy Adrian Oros, Vice-President of the National Liberal Party (PNL), on Sunday told a press conference in Cluj that, as far as he knew, it seemed like the motion of censure against the Tudose Cabinet will also be signed by some of the Social Democratic MPs.
“PNL submitted on Friday a motion of censure to be read in Parliament on Monday, before a date for the voting is set. We submitted the motion now because the government already lost its legitimacy 3-4 months ago, since it won the elections with promises it did not honor. The main concerns of the Government are to cover the electoral promises by fiscal tricks and reform the justice fields, so that some of the PSD-ALDE (Social Democratic Party and Alliance of Liberal and Democratic Liberals) coalition will get rid of their criminal files. As far as we know, it seems that the motion will be signed including by some of the Social Democrats MPS, who are unpleased with Liviu Dragnea and realize that the party has an image problem because of Dragnea’s criminal problems,” said Oros.
He also said that the text of the motion will be read by the representatives of the PNL in front of the Cluj Prefecture.
“On Monday, 6 pm, when we are going to read the motion of censure in Parliament, we are also going to read a synthesis of the motion of censure in front of the prefecture offices nationwide,” the PNL Vice-President also said.
Vosganian: The title of the PNL censure motion comes “from a Nazi and racial props”
Vice Chair of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats (ALDE), MP Varujan Vosganian, says that the title of the PNL censure motion, namely “PSDragnea, in campanie muma, la putere ciuma” (“PSDragnea, mother to all in the campaign, plague at rule” – e.n.) comes from a “Nazi props”, and this is the most serious reason to reject the motion, in order to be “a warning for those who wish to revive the most bitter and shameful aggressions, expressions and visions of the 20th century”.
MP Varujan Vosganian said on Saturday at a press conference held at Iasi that the title of the censure motion initiated by Liberals is “ridiculous” and it “comes from a Nazi and racial props”.
“I’ve read the content of this censure motion. The title seems ridiculous to me. It comes from a Nazi props. I asked several times our colleagues in Parliament not to evoke by the phrases they use the saddest experiences of the 20th century. I remind you that this association between plague and social categories was created to smooth the path of the racial laws in Nurnberg, when the Jewish minority was compared to animals that cause plague. It was a shame of the 20th century. This association between social categories, between political representations and a plague of this kind can only remind us of that Nazi and racial props” the ALDE MP stated.
Vosganian said that he regrets that the opposition labeled the parliamentary majority like this, because it offends those who voted the parties in the governmental construction.
“I regret that the opposition found such a way to label the parliamentary majority, which is actually the option of the majority of voters. And if the majority of the Romanians is a plague carrier, it seems to me that the opposition hasn’t found the best way to express itself. This expression contained by the title of the censure motion must be rejected, to be a clear warning for those who wish to revive the most bitter and shameful aggressions, expressions and visions of the 20th century” Varujan Vosganian also stated.
The ALDE Vice Chair says that the censure motion of the opposition has an “announced” outcome, namely it will be rejected by the Parliament.
