Dan Barna was validated as party leader within the 5th party congress of the Save Romania Union (USR), which unfolded on Saturday in Timisoara. He stated that in the presidential elections, the people will have the chance to choose between two versions of Romania, estimating that he will enter the presidential runoff alongside President Klaus Iohannis.
“I believe and I am very optimistic that Romania will have for the first time, after 30 years, the chance to choose in the runoff voting between two versions of Romania, between the incumbent president, Klaus Iohannis, the PNL [the National Liberal Party] candidate, and me, Dan Barna, from the USR-PLUS Alliance. It is a signal that Romania is getting better and it is a message that after three years of PSD [the Social Democratic Party] abuses over Romania, people have understood that this tired mammoth should withdraw from the current history,” Dan Barna Press told a news conference.
He stated that people are putting all their hope in the USR-PLUS Alliance.
The party congress was attended by approximately 800 members, of whom 500 voters. There were 478 voters present, of whom 439 voted “in favour”, 14 against and 25 abstained.
“We have a new National Bureau that will bring the USR to govern”
The new National Bureau of the Save Romania Union (USR) elected by the 5th congress will bring the party to govern, on Sunday said this political formation’s chairman Dan Barna.
“Following the outcome of the election, we have a new National Bureau of the USR that will bring the USR to govern, they are colleagues and persons I do trust very much and alongside whom we will win the presidential election and will shape that government Romania needs badly,” Dan Barna told a news conference in western Timisoara.
The USR head stated that next to him there are many people who will be part of the future governance of the USR PLUS (Party of Liberty, Unity and Solidarity) Alliance the Union has authorised with trustworthiness and support “to bring this party to Romania’s governance in the next two year”.
“It is a team I very much trust. Together, we will win the presidential, the local elections and will bring USR to govern. It is the team that will heal Romania and turn it into a country the young will not leave anymore, a country whose entrepreneurs are being supported, the law is the law, and the resources are used for the people in need. That Romania we all wish for and where we all could live happy, in here, at home,” Dan Barna stated, according to a USR release.
