In the long run, the splitting of the Left is a process that can no longer be stopped, National Liberal Party (PNL) Senator Alina Gorghiu considers against the backdrop of PSD infighting, stating that as long as that party is in Government things will not go well for Romania.
“While the coalition is fighting over power, who is governing Romania? The economic outlook is very bad: interest rates and the inflation rate are going up and we risk losing 1.5 billion euro from European grants. The only acceptable solution is for this party to admit its incompetence and leave. As long as PSD is in Government, things will not go well for Romania. If we accept that PSD is harmful, then we should accept we need a political project that would see this party removed until it understands it must reform itself from the ground up. I don’t see a solution today, regardless of the decisions taken. In the long run, we will notice that the splitting of the Left is a process that can no longer be stopped, regardless of the number of handles on the leadership’s chairs,” Gorghiu wrote on Facebook on Monday.
The Senator also pointed out that replacing the Prime Minister would not be a decent solution.
“One thing is certain – Romania cannot be sacrificed for the personal plans of a person who is temporarily at the helm of a parliamentary majority. Replacing the Premier for the second time in a year would be awkward. This is not a decent solution either. PSD has a dark record in what concerns the way it comes out of such internal crises. I don’t believe we’ll see a miracle today, rather a confirmation of some defects we already know,” she added.
In her opinion, the political fighting of recent days falls “under the aegis of the individualism of the leader” who does not accept the fact that he must take a step back.
“For Romania, the crisis started on the first day of the PSD-ALDE Government, itself being a crisis in the economy and the judiciary, because political instability is being increasingly felt in society. Basically, this is the risk of having in Government a party such as the PSD is now: subordinated to Liviu Dragnea’s personal interest and led based on a feudal system. Even the fighting these days falls also under the aegis of the individualism of the leader, who does not accept the fact that he must take a step back, because the pressure of his legal problems is much too heavy and the times of the mailed fist policy are gone,” the PNL Senator said.
