The Secretary General of the Social Democratic Party (PSD), Paul Stanescu, gave assurances, on Friday in Vaslui, that at the end of May the president of the PSD, Marcel Ciolacu, would be appointed prime minister, stating that otherwise there would be early elections in Romania.
Stanescu participated in the Vaslui PSD County Conference, during which several delegates asked whether the agreement signed with the governing partners would be respected.
“If you still have doubts, don’t, because our president, Marcel Ciolacu, will be the Prime Minister of Romania at the end of May. If this doesn’t happen, we will surely have early elections”, said Paul Stanescu, according to Agerpres.
The president of the PSD, Marcel Ciolacu, opined that the discussions related to the change of the prime minister are not opportune at this moment, stressing that the rotation will be done according to the agreement with the partners.
“The principle from which we start is clearly the one stipulated in the agreement. I remind you that we and our partners from the PNL and from the UDMR and from the minorities are political people. I am firmly convinced that at a certain point, when be opportune, we will talk in more detail. Things are provided for in an agreement. I don’t understand why we are talking in the public space about what will happen in five months, when the priorities of Romanians are completely different,” stated Ciolacu.
The two social-democratic leaders were present, on Friday, at the PSD Vaslui County Conference, during which Dumitru Buzatu was re-elected as president of the county organization.
