“What I can tell you is that things have progressed and are advancing. We are optimistic that we will be successful and have the ability to advance a team with which to campaign and say to the people of Bucharest: Yes, we will work with these people and change Bucharest,” said Nasui, according to Agerpres.
Voiculescu also expressed optimism about the negotiations with PNL on this issue.
“At the district level, negotiations are still working. The ball is in the PNL’s court at the moment. Our principles are those that we have enunciated and repeated. We are expecting and are optimistic this time that next week we will be able to tell you the results of these negotiations, results that will be to the benefit of the people of Bucharest. I think it is a good thing for each of us if in the end we come up with a team that we can all be proud of, after a compromise or another,” said Voiculescu.
Nasui mentioned that negotiations with PNL are very advanced also for the appointment of a common candidate for the City Hall of Galati, but the USR PLUS Alliance will never support Mihai Chirica for the position of mayor of the city of Iasi.
