Dancila: We validated in National Executive Committee candidacies for three positions to be voted at Congress tomorrow

 

The PSD National Executive Committee (CExN) on Friday validated the candidacies for presidential elections, executive president and secretary general, and established the way of holding the congress and the changes to the statute, said the acting president of the party, Viorica Dancila.

“We have established the way of holding the congress, the changes we will make in the statute and we have validated the candidatures on the three positions that will be voted tomorrow at the congress,” Dancila said at the end of the CExN.

She said that four people are running for PSD chairmanship and all four candidates were validated by the National Executive Committee.

Viorica Dancita mentioned that there were two candidates for the position of PSD chairman but who did not meet the conditions and were not subject to the vote in the National Executive Committee.

According to Viorica Dancila, the congress will be elections in one round.

“When I said in the Government that the presidents of the county councils have to be nominated in a single round, because they represent the citizens’ vote, as I also advocate that the mayors be elected in a single round, I believe that I followed the same logic within the congress. The one with the highest number of votes is the winner, because I do not want a political position, as well as a position in the administration, to be subject to subsequent agreements and to express the confidence that the delegates in this situation give to a person or another,” Dancila said.

Former MEP  Ioan Mircea Pascu, backed by PSD for acting European Commissioner for Regional Policies

 

Former Member of the European Parliament Ioan Mircea Pascu is backed for the position of acting European Commissioner, on Friday said the Prime Minister Viorica Dancila at the end of the PSD (Social Democratic Party) National Executive Committee’s sitting.

“I believed he is a person with experience,” the PSD leader explained, adding that currently the position of commissioner for regional policies is vacant.

“It is an important portfolio and Romania must be represented,” Dancila said.

She asserted that the backing by PSD of Pascu was unanimous.

“We voted this option, had unanimity from our colleagues in the CExN and came with a proposition. If our proposition is accepted by the European Commission, the PSD proposal is Ioan Mircea Pascu,” Dancila said, adding that Pascu “is a man with experience, a former MEP who held a very important position in the European Parliament, that of Vice President of the EP.”

 

Congress to validate PSD candidate for presidential elections, until 11 August

 

PSD acting head Viorica Dancila said on Friday that presidential elections are a priority for the social-democrats, adding that polls will be made for all the social-democrats who will want to participate in the presidential election, and the one chosen will be validated at a congress that will take place either at the end of July or early August.

“Presidential elections are a priority for us. If in the European parliamentary elections we had a result that dissatisfied the party, if in the European Parliament elections we saw that we did not actually succeed in gaining the trust of the members, the sympathizers, the citizens, it means that somewhere mistakes were made. We do not want to repeat these mistakes for the presidential election,” Dancila said at the end of the meeting of the National Executive Committee of PSD.

She explained that opinion polls would be made with all the social-democrats in the presidential elections.
