The syndrome of former party leaders who start other parties from scratch


In recent months, it has become a new fashion among former party leaders to resign once they lose their reins and start over in a new formation. Victor Ponta, Călin-Popescu Tăriceanu, Liviu Dragnea, Ludovic Orban or Viorica Dăncilă are just a few examples.

In mid-September last year, with his release from prison, former PSD leader Liviu Dragnea announced that he would be involved in the success of a new party founded by Codrin Stefanescu and other former Social Democrats.

The party formed around Liviu Dragnea was founded, according to the latter, by four “ordinary people”, in collaboration with the former general secretary of PSD Codrin Ștefănescu and that its objective is “the welfare of the Romanians.” Although the party was formed after the parliamentary elections, it already has a member in Parliament after the deputy Francisc Tobă, who joined the AUR lists, joined Dragnea’s party on March 28. In addition, Tobă was promoted to vice-president of the party and “will coordinate the defense department, public order and national security of the party.

At the same time, the deputy will lead, within APP, the commission for discussions and negotiations with the parliamentarians who are going to join us in order to set up the own parliamentary groups of the Alliance for the Fatherland ”, the party announced.

Asked about the success that APP could have, the political analyst Radu Delicote told Ziare.com that although Liviu Dragnea no longer has the administrative leverage to offer, the knowledge of administrative policy of the former PSD leader could help attract members from other parties as well. At the same time, the analyst also shows that although there are not many examples in the press, in PSD there are a number of dissatisfied or even different wings.

Orban founded the “Right Force”

Former PNL leader Ludovic Orban also founded a new party in mid-December last year, following his resignation from the party led by Gheorge Flutur. Orban made the decision last year to leave the party after the then president, Florin Cîțu, between USR-PLUS and PSD chose Ciolacu’s party to form the new government.

“We did not leave the PNL, but the PNL leadership left the people who trusted us. They committed a serious betrayal of these people, preferring to stay in the PSD’s governing baggage,” said Ludovic Orban.

Asked about the chances of success of the new party founded by Ludovic Orban, political analyst Alfred Bulai told Ziare.com that his goal is not to last over time, but expects the current PNL leadership to erode and then seek a merger. .

“It simply came to our notice then. He needs a political vehicle for himself and for some of those in the PNL who are not in the grace of the new leadership. The hope is to merge again with the PNL at some point, as other liberal movements have done. This thing was done in the 90’s, “Alfred Bulai explained.

Dăncilă leaves the PSD for another party

Former presidential candidate and former Prime Minister Viorica Dăncilă resigned from the party he led until November 2019 and announced last week that he was joining a new party. She explained that “after 26 years” it no longer resonates with the decisions that this party takes and that it was decided “to take it from the beginning. As of today, I am a member of a new political party. The “People Together” Party (NOI). A young party, with young but valuable people, people who have decided not to stand aside anymore “, Dăncilă wrote on Facebook.

The former prime minister says he found in the new party “serious people, with relevant experience in their fields of activity”, with a vision “based on patriotism, truth, consensus, communion, authentic faith”.

On the same day, the current PSD leader, Marcel Ciolacu, reacted ironically to Dăncilă’s announcement. “I am devastated by this loss, but I hope to get back together with my colleagues very soon. Moreover, I, Marcel Ciolacu, will interrupt this chain of PSD presidents who are forming another political party “, Ciolacu declared for G4Media.

According to the Bucharest Tribunal, the NOI party was definitively registered in the register of political parties on January 13, 2022 and is temporarily led by a Bogdan Petrescu, an IT specialist from Cluj-Napoca. Francesco – Ionel Șerban (interim president of the Council of Projects and Strategies), Iulia Hirică (interim vice-president), Răzvan-Gabriel Gogoț (interim vice-president), Cornelia Baloș (interim general secretary) and Silvia Braia (interim treasurer).
