Former civil society activist becomes interim leader of PNL Bucharest
Violeta Alexandru, former civil society activist, currently adviser of Liberal chairman Ludovic Orban, has been validated by the party meeting on Tuesday as interim leader of the National Liberal Party Bucharest organisation.
PNL Bucharest leadership resigned early this month following the poor score in Bucharest at the EP elections.
Violeta Alexandru was proposed for the interim top position of the Bucharest branch by Ludovic Orban and his proposal has been validated by 21 votes in favor, two against and two abstentions. The vote has been secret.
As for the leadership of the Liberal district branches, the proposals will be made by Violeta Alexandru herself in about one week.
Alexandru vowed to take decisions based on concrete arguments. “No colleague who wants to do his/her job in PNL, who wants to take PNL on a respected position, should be worried that I will take any emotional decisions”, said Alexandru.
MEP Rares Bogdan has praised Violeta Alexandru as a valuable member for the party.
“Violeta has worked in the civil society for a long time, we worked together in the campaign, she was one of the key people in the campaign for Bucharest, she has done a fantastic work in the door-to-door campaign and at TV shows. She is very valuable, she could have been placed on the EP lists as well. She was next to Dacian Ciolos, then she joined PNL, as Mr. Orban’s adviser,” said Rares Bogdan.
Violeta Alexandru took part of the Ciolos technocrat cabinet in 2016, as delegate Minister for Public Consultations and Social Dialogue. Alexandru remained in Ciolos’ team until March 2018, when she announced her withdrawal from this camp after Ciolos had announced the that “Romania 100” platform would turn into “Romanian Together Movement”.
