PNL National Council to convene on March 12. Court ruling in Orban’s case, expected on March 5

PNL’s National Council and National Political Bureau will convene on March 12, approximately one week after the court is expected to make a final ruling in the dossier that concerns PNL President Ludovic Orban, who expressed his “optimism” on Monday.

“Unintentionally, there will be a connection, but the National Bureau and the National Council were not convened for this reason. In line with the PNL Statute, the National Council is convened every six months, and the deadline has come, and the National Political Bureau convenes every month,” PNL President Ludovic Orban stated when asked whether there is any connection between the date on which the party’s National Council has been convened and the date on which the court is expected to issue a final ruling in the dossier in which he is indicted.

Ludovic Orban stated he is “optimistic and confident,” pointing out that there are no grounds to modify the trial court’s decision, which found him not guilty.

“The way the ICCJ panel of judges carried out its court investigation makes me extremely optimistic and I believe nothing has appeared besides what had appeared during the court proceedings in the trial court. On the contrary, elements in my favour have appeared, which makes me believe and makes me convinced that there are no grounds to modify the decision of the trial court, the acquittal. (…) I’m optimistic, confident, (…),” Orban said when asked what he would do if the court were to find him guilty.
