President Klaus Iohannis on Saturday participated in the regional conference of PNL (National Liberal Party) branches in South-Western Romania (Oltenia), where he spoke about his intention to win all elections, in order to “rebuild” Romania, and criticized the PSD (Social Democratic Party) government, which failed to meet the electoral promises it made in 2016 – to build roads, hospitals, schools.
“PSD, for Romania, was and continues to be a catastrophe. (…) In exchange, they succeeded to install their relatives, friends, party members in many, very many public offices. Competent people had to step aside, so that these incompetents, who almost managed to destroy the public systems in Romania, who almost managed to destroy Romanian democracy, could take their place. (…) But there were still some of us who always opposed them. We used our constitutional instruments and stopped very many of the stupid and impertinent things they had planned for Romania,” said Iohannis, who said his greatest success was the May 26 referendum.
Klaus Iohannis also added that the country needs “to rebuild what the PSD destroyed,” that Romania needs “reconstruction and modernization,” in order to become “a normal country.”
