PNL President Ludovic Orban criticizes Prime Minister Florin Cîţu for the decision to allocate funds to mayors during the campaign for the party’s internal elections, recalling that for a similar gesture President Klaus Iohannis filed a criminal complaint on behalf of Liviu Dragnea . “Well, can we talk today about conditioning the allocation of public money to mayors in Congress on the condition of supporting a candidate who is the incumbent prime minister? Well, brothers, such a thing is criminal, you know!”, Says Orban.
Present, on Monday evening, at the meeting of the Olt PNL Steering Committee, the PNL leader, Ludovic Orban, recalled that President Iohannis filed a criminal complaint on behalf of Liviu Dragnea on the grounds that he, using money from PNDL1, “bought mayors” from PNL before the campaign for the 2014 presidential elections and “passed them to PSD promising them projects”.
“President Iohannis himself is the one who filed the criminal complaint against Dragnea. Of course she did not follow the course, but the complaint was made. Well, we can talk today about the conditioning of the allocation of public money to mayors in Congress provided “Support a candidate who is the incumbent prime minister? Well, brothers, it’s criminal, you know! All public resources are allocated in accordance with the law, based on well-established regulations and procedures. I also allocated money from the reserve fund.” , but I did it based on the law (…). Based on the law, yes?
Not based on a momentary interest! How to give money to mayors when you are in the election campaign for the position of president of the National Liberal Party? Give the money a week before the Congress! Well, I’m sorry to tell you, but it will blow our image, all the media will make rags if something like this happens in the internal electoral campaign of the National Liberal Party. Why did he have to wait so far? If there were legal and pertinent requests from the mayors, they had to be satisfied earlier, not in the last week of the campaign! ”, Said Ludovic Orban in his speech in front of the liberals from Olt.
He categorized the internal campaign he carried out in the party as a “common sense, discreet” one, criticizing the way in which Florin Cîţu understood to be promoted for the internal elections.
“The problem was not Florin Cîţu’s candidacy for the position of president of the National Liberal Party, but the way in which the whole campaign was built, such a campaign is not allowed to win in the National Liberal Party! If such a campaign wins in the Party National Liberal means that we can go home, that this is no longer the National Liberal Party. A campaign is done through positive messages, it is done through a serious program, it is done through solid arguments. It is done by convincing people. to vote freely for the option they have for the good of the National Liberal Party “, Orban also stated.
Ludovic Orban, attack on PNL ministers
The PNL president, Ludovic Orban, harshly attacked the ministers who support Florin Cîţu, stating that they “are not leaders”, but must serve the interests of the people, and the party is not led by the Government, but the situation must be inverse.
“Well, what do we owe them, ministers? How can I accept a minister to fire seven liberals just because they are supporters of the president of the National Liberal Party who proposed that minister: well, he is our leader or he is the man who arrived in office due to nine? “, Ludovic Orban stated on Monday evening, September 13th.
“Do you think Florin Cîţu is better than me? Do you think that Florin Cîţu will ever do what I did for PNL: do you think that Florin Cîţu knows at least one percent of what I know about the National Liberal Party? I say other things. (…) Have I ever threatened a liberal, have you ever heard me shouting or giving orders or scaring someone or conditioning any help I have given? It has been happening in the National Liberal Party for a long time and has nothing to do with liberalism and democracy!
We can’t accept what’s going on! If you accept what is happening, namely the change of the real will of the people through instruments of pressure, control, promises of money, threats of exclusion from the party, threats of dismissal, it means that we will no longer be The National Liberal Party, we will be an army in which we accept orders and we will simply be … the National Liberal Party? Are you kidding? There will never be a National Liberal Party again.
Let’s not pretend we don’t understand what this is about! Let’s not pretend we don’t understand what it’s about! ”, Said Ludovic Orban, on Monday evening, in the meeting of the County Steering Committee of PNL Olt.
