General Mayor of the Capital City Gabriela Firea (from the Social Democratic Party – PSD) on Friday stated that she will candidate for the office of Vice-Chairman of the PSD, if she is recommended by her colleagues from the women organization, but she rejected at the same time the possibility of her becoming a presidential candidate.
“If my colleagues from the women organization recommend me, I will thank them and I will feel honored to run for the office of Vice-Chairman of the PSD. I would like it not for the job itself, since my most important activity is the City Hall, but rather thinking it would normal for Bucharest to have a political representative in the National Standing Bureau of the party. We have a lot of issues and I believe that Bucharest’s voice must be heard in such an important forum of a party who is currently governing the country,” specified Firea, at the Forum “Real Estate Market: Trends and Objectives for 2018,” organized by Intact Media Group at the Parliament Palace.
Asked whether she considered the possibility of becoming a candidate for Romania’s presidential office, Firea said no.
In respect to the allegations that she and Ecaterina Andronescu would be ready to start a war against party leader Liviu Dragnea, Gabriela Firea said that she was more concerned with removing the snow from the capital city than with starting “revolutions in the party.”
“I saw that some people were suggesting I and Mrs. Andronescu have started a war against Mr. Chairman [Liviu Dragnea]. I have not been doing such a thing for, as you all know, I have been removing the snow from the city all week, and even the most active of my critics admitted that we did a great job removing the snow, and even those who were crying yesterday on the shoulders of those who are protesting in the Victoria Square for they didn’t have a place where to protest anymore because there was a huge pile right there, were surprised today to see there was no snow left in Victoria Square and that the city hall’s special vehicles melted the snow overnight. Three such vehicles melted all the snow, so I am busy doing that and not revolutions in the party,” said Gabriela Firea.
