The chairman of the National Liberal Party (PNL), Ludovic Orban, believes he has high chances to win the internal elections, regardless of the result of the censure motion against the Government.
Ludovic Orban made the statement at the Parliament, when asked if he believes Florin Citu’s chances at the helm of the PNL will be diminished if the government he leads will be dismissed by censure motion.
“The events that are taking place in this period can affect the options of some delegates. On the other hand, (…) many of the possible delegates, especially those who expressed their option to support me, have a stable option on the matter, to support me, which is dictated by considerations having less to do with conjecture and more to do with the evaluation of my candidacy and especially the comparison between me and my opponent,” mentioned Orban.
If a solution for continuing cooperation possible, I will support it
The chairman of the National Liberal Party (PNL), Ludovic Orban, declared on Friday that in the event that, following the discussions from the governing coalition, there will be an accepted solution by all sides, he will also support it.
“We will sit at the table to talk. If it is possible to have a solution which will be accepted by all sides regarding maintaining the coalition and continuing cooperation, I will support that solution. The problem is to reach a solution,” Orban told a press statement in Parliament, at the end of the PNL’s National Standing Bureau.
He also appreciated that in the event that there was “a little patience” there would not have been any issues regarding the approval of the Emergency Ordinance for the Anghel Saligny Program.
“If there had been a little patience and if all approval procedures would have been carried out correctly, I don’t believe we would have had any approval issues from any Ministry. I know the document’s content very well, which was presented on the agenda of the ordinance project by the Ministry of Justice, who said very clearly that not only he does not oppose the approval, but will approve it within four days, as well as the legal provisions and government decision are respected. (…) I believe that we could have reached a solution and avoided an extremely difficult situation where we find ourselves today,” Orban added, according to Agerpres.
