PNL endorses candidacy of Nicusor Dan for Bucharest’s Mayor office

The National Liberal Party (PNL) supports the candidacy of Nicusor Dan for the position of general mayor of the Capital, in this year’s elections.

The announcement was made by PNL leader, Interim Prime Minister Ludovic Orban.

“PNL has carried out a broad sociological research at the level of Bucharest and at the level of each district of the Capital. Following this research it has resulted that all PNL candidates have the chance to win the elections for the Capital’s City Hall, but we do not have this guarantee that they will win the battle against PSD [Social Democratic Party]. Following the discussions we had with Nicusor Dan, aimed at Bucharest’s issues and the solutions for solving the Capital’s big problems, I made the decision to propose Nicusor Dan as a candidate supported by PNL,” said Orban, at the PNL headquarters, according to Agerpres.

He added that he will present this decision for the approval of the party’s leading bodies.

 

Nicusor Dan thanks PNL leader

 

“I thank Chairman of the National Liberal Party (PNL) Ludovic Orban for supporting my candidacy for the City Hall. This is a gesture of utmost political responsibility, given that the PNL itself has highly competent people for this position. Through this gesture of responsibility, the Bucharesters’ desire to have a single candidate of the opposition running against the Firea – Social Democrat administration is very close to being fulfilled,” Nicusor Dan said in a statement published on his Facebook page.

He assured the business environment that they will have a reliable partner in him.
