Romanian Social Democrats to conditionally support Liberal Government for three months
Following a phone conversation with the prime minister-designate Nicolae Ciuca, Social Democrat leader Marcel Ciolacu (PSD) proposed to support the would-be Liberal (PNL) Government for a limited period of time until February 1, conditioned a list of the implementation of ten requirements in the economic, sanitary and social areas.
The consultations between the two will continue after the PM-designate Ciuca completes the ruling strategy and evaluates the requirements submitted by the Social Democrats, according to a statement quoted by News.ro.
In its turn, PSD leader Coiolacu stressed that his party is ready to support the Liberal Government only for a limited period of time, and this does not imply that the Social Democrats would in any way enter a political alliance with the Liberals.
"We are talking, however, about a political truce aimed at overcoming the pandemic and the problems in the energy sector. We have never considered endorsing the Government for a three-year term," the Social Democrat leader said.
