PM Dancila rules out snap elections

Prime Minister Viorica Dancila said on Tuesday that the statutory bodies of the Social Democratic Party (PSD) will decide whether or not there should be changes in the leadership of the party, ruling out snap elections.

Asked before the meeting of the PSD National Standing Bureau if changes were to be made to the leadership of the party, Dancila said: “The decisions are taken within the statutory bodies after we talk to all our colleagues. I am no proponent of the idea that the decision should be taken only by the chairman of the party.”

Asked also if it is possible for snap elections to be called, the prime minister said, “No, that is not an option.”

 

Negrescu: Party should learn from European elections’ outcome, start reconstruction

 

Victor Negrescu, honorary councilor to the prime minister, said Tuesday that it is important for the Social Democratic Party (PSD) to learn from the outcome of the European parliamentary elections, adding that the party needs reconstruction.

“Today’s discussions are very important about the future of PSD, so it is important to learn from these results and know what to do next. I think we need to restart a reconstruction of PSD, a reconstruction including of our identity. We must return to the social-democratic values and principles, reconnect to our European partners, perhaps get out of the isolation where we have been lately in order to be even more in touch with our partners as well as with the citizens who have supported us over time,” Negrescu said before a meeting of the PSD Standing Bureau.

Asked if Liviu Dragnea prevented this, he said, “I think it is important to do this today. You know very well that I have been one of those speaking very often about the need to be connected to our partners and give a pro-European message.”
