Liberal leader: Emil Boc to run for Cluj City Hall on PNL’s behalf
Cluj Liberal leader, MEP Daniel Buda on Thursday revealed that incumbent Cluj Mayor Emil Boc, former Democrat-Liberal premier and close to former president Traian Basescu, would run for a new mandate at the helm of Cluj City Hall on behalf of the National Liberal Party.
“Mr. Emil Boc gave his written intention at the secretariat of PNL branch in Cluj to run for a new term at Cluj City Hall at the local elections next year. This proves that any other rumors about his candidature are mere speculation,” Buda said.
His statement comes after PNL co-president Alina Gorghiu had stated last week that she was not so sure that Boc would be PNL’s candidate for Cluj City Hall, adding she would like to know if the former PDL prime minister would serve the Liberal party hand and foot. Gorghiu argued that she wouldn’t like to see Boc’s feelings revived along with Traian Basescu’s joining PMP.
