A vice-president of Romania's main opposition party, the National Liberal Party (PNL), Florin Roman, reiterated the criticism against former prime minister Dacian Ciolos, who now is the president of the PLUS party and part of a major opposition coalition formed with the Save Romanian Union (USR).
Ciolos is “as arrogant as [Liviu] Dragnea (the head of senior ruling Social Democratic Party), in his attacks against PNL,” Roman stated, quoted by Hotnews.ro.
Ciolos cheated PNL, which supported him first for a minister position, then for the position of European Commissioner, he claimed. There are no grounds for Ciolos to condition an electoral alliance with PNL, he concluded, hinting to a statement of Dacian Ciolos about PNL joining the USR-PLUS alliance (coined as Alianta 2020), “only conditional to sharing the same values, principles, and projects.”
In a separate statement supporting the rising tensions between USR-PLUS on a side and PNL on the other, USR leader Dan Barna stated that he would rather support Dacian Ciolos for the presidential elections than incumbent President Klaus Iohannis [most likely to get PNL’s endorsement for another term], Mediafax reported.
