Bucharest Mayor, Gabriela Firea, has lost the majority in the Bucharest General Council following the exclusion of four PSD counselors from the party. This is the conclusion drawn by PNL general counselor, Ciprian Ciucu.
General Counselors Florea Ancuta Doina, Pavel Marius Adrian, Sandulescu Nina and Suhan Valeriu Nicolae have been excluded from the Social-Democratic Party for reasons related to the fact that they voted against some projects, PSD District 5 informs on the Facebook page, ziare.com reports.
By the law, a counselor excluded from the party loses his seat in the General Council and he would be replaced by the next person on the list for local election.
PNL Counselor Ciprian Ciucu said Monday morning that following this move, Gabriela Firea loses the majority in the General Council
He claims Firea will face problems as the pro-Dragnea wing will replace the excluded counselors. The latest city hall projects were rejected by the council, with Gabriela Firea saying that the projects are not voted due to ‘backstage maneuvers’ from Liviu Dragnea and former President Traian Basescu.
