Ex-District 4 mayor Piedone may run again for the city hall. Decision not final

Former District 4 mayor Cristian Popescu Piedone may run again for the district’s city hall, the Bucharest District 4 Court has ruled on Sunday, rejecting the appeal filed by the ‘Colectiv pentru vitor’ association. The decision is not final.

The members of the “Colectiv for the Future” association filed an appeal in court against the candidature of Cristian Popescu Piedone.

“The appeal request can be adjusted and enlarged with the suffering and prejudices suffered by each of you due to the mayor activity of the one who doesn’t hesitate to reconfirm, by his candidature, that our close ones have died for nothing,” the association states on Facebook.

Cristian Popescu Piedone on Wednesday informed on Facebook that he had filed his candidature to run for the District 4 Bucharest City Hall, although he had announced that he stepped aside following the Colectiv tragedy. He is criminally prosecuted in this case.

The District 4 mayor Cristian Popescu Piedone, who was asked to step aside following the Colectiv tragedy, resigned on November 4. Back then, Piedone used to say that he is going to withdraw from the political life. He also said he is assuming the moral guilt for the Colectiv tragedy, while he will let the magistrates decide about the criminal guilt.
