PSD and ALDE are the only parties that have decided not to sign the National Political Agreement to Consolidate Romania’s European Route, continuing to drift away from the interests of citizens, President Klaus Iohannis stated on Tuesday, pointing out that, through its passivity, the PSD-ALDE majority positions itself against the will of Romanians.
“On May 26, Romanians voted for the observance of European values. In a consolidated democracy, responsible politicians are those who listen to the voice of the citizens and act accordingly. The political agreement that I proposed to all political parties immediately after the May 26 elections answers the aspirations of Romanian citizens: rule of law, independent judiciary, legislating transparently and responsibly, the continuation of the fight against corruption, and integrity in exercising public office. Following the consultations in June, I extended to all political parties the invitation to be part of this project for Romanians. The only parties that decided not to sign this agreement are the PSD and ALDE, which continue to drift away from the interests of the citizens. Through its passivity, the PSD-ALDE majority positions itself against the will of the Romanians. When citizens express their sovereign will in a certain way, the immediate consequence for decision-making politicians is that they must act in line with this will,” Iohannis said.
He underscored that “Romanians are waiting for the will they expressed in the May 26 referendum to be transposed into concrete measures as fast as possible.”
“The damage done in the last two years must be fixed,” Iohannis stated.
According to him, “the process of implementing the objectives of the pact is not easy and it’s only starting.”
On Tuesday, UDMR leader Kelemen Hunor and Varujan Pambuccian, leader of the group of national minorities, signed the National Political Agreement to Consolidate Romania’s European Route.
