The winner does not take everything! – editorial by Cornel Nistorescu

“The winner takes everything!”, ABBA sang and can still be heard. It was about love, although we can’t talk about a final victory there either. Things change after a while. And in wars, the winner takes everything. It imposes conditions of peace. And he dictates for a while. But even there does not last an eternity. It’s still changing. And in politics, the winner takes everything. But his power does not last either in love or after a war. The victory in politics is truly temporary. Sometimes it only lasts one night. Sometimes a month, a year and, very rarely, a decade. In the case of Florin Vasilică Cîțu, the victory at the PNL Congress, despite the fact that it ended with the installation of the entire campaign team at the head of the party, does not mean much. He barely gives them a breath of fresh air for another breath in the fight to stay in position. If he had lost, Florin Vasilică Cîțu would have flown from the political game and, in a very short time, he would have lost the prime minister’s seat.

Great “miracles” on the second day of the PNL elections

Saturday’s victory, continued with the “legalization” of the party’s positions in those of his party, barely ensures his temporary retention in the chair. Not for long. Florin Cîțu may lose the post of prime minister after voting on the censure motion that could take place very soon. Then he may lose a piece of PNL. Nor can the support produced by the convenience of President Klaus Iohannis continue indefinitely. For the president, Florin Cîțu became the main source of public discomfort. His combinations with Lucian Isar and Alina Gorghiu will also catch the flu. Without the signature of the prime minister and without the economic power given by the post, Florin Vasilică Cîțu can lose sympathizers, supporters and interested parties. And President Klaus Iohannis could get tired of the swearing and dislike generated by the caricature of the prime minister. In the end, Cîțu can be used as Moțoc’s head in the virtual political short story “The inexplicable ascent and collapse of Florin Vasile Cîțu”.

The winner never takes everything. At least in politics, it takes everything only in cases of dictatorship. Time reserves a good slice of the importance of a victory. Rather or slower. The next few days will show us whether the pace is fast or slow, whether it is a consolidation of power or a weakening of it. In our case, the winner also took from the battle for power in the PNL, but did not get involved in the dispute for the head of government. The victory may lead him to a dead end, a sign that all his and President Iohannis’ calculations of removing USR-PLUS from Transport, European Funds, Economy and Justice have been wrong. In this dispute, Florin Cîțu is not the winner. He may even go to the point where he becomes a safe victim.

CSG: Everyone is attacking Câţu. But Câţu is zero barat. The ultimate evil is Klaus Iohannis!

Information is circulating on the net that during the PNL Congress at 112 more than 2,000 calls were made regarding the non-observance of the rules and norms regarding the pandemic. A friend has a simple explanation. The entire congress was managed by SPP and Pahonțu. This also explains the participation of President Klaus Iohannis, a citizen without a mask among 5,000 citizens infected by Romanian politics. The participation of President Iohannis in the congress at the Exhibition Pavilion took the place out of the control of the police and passed it under that of the SPP, where the people of General Pahonțu checked that something unforeseen could be set up.

Until the story of Cîțu’s victory continues its political development, all I have to do is look at the picture resulting from the PNL elections. I try to imagine what our country will look like with a prime minister who has the level of thinking and skill of Florin Cîțu, what the country’s finances will look like with a minister like Dan Vîlceanu and how much money Romania will borrow to maintain the corrupt and cumbersome apparatus. budget, how will life be with the screams like a hysterical monkey of Rareș Bogdan, how will be the PNL with Marcel Vela vice-president, with Gheorghe Flutur and Alina Gorghiu behind the scenes of decisions. This means that Romania could reach the mercy of Alexandru Muraru and Nelu Tătaru, Monica Anisie and Cristian Bușoi.

Ludovic Orban nuances the statement about his resignation: “If I submit to the Chamber on Monday…”

Either I no longer understand much of what political life means, or we are on the verge of becoming the sure victims of an invasion of brazen mediocrity united under the emblem of the National Liberal Party.
