The National Liberal Party leaderships on Monday validated the candidates running for city halls in 14 residential towns, as well as the candidates running for county councils in Bacău, Cluj and Teleorman counties. The party’s strategy for Bucharest City Hall is to be unveiled this week.
“We running in Alba with the current mayor Mircea Hava and with mayor Gheorghe Falcă in Arad. Senator Dragos Luchian is running for Braila city hall, senator Catalin Boboc for Braila. Ioan Popa is running for Caras Severin city hall, the current mayor Emil Boc at Cluj Napoca. We chose Pavel Badea at Dolj, Nicusor Ciumacenco in Galati, mayor Petru Marginean at Deva, mayor Daniel Carjan at Drobeta Turnu Severin. Senator Andrei Volosevici will run for Ploiesti city hall and mayor Nicolae Robu for a new term at Timisoara city hall,” PNL co-president Vasile Blaga (photo) informed on Monday.
The Liberal leadership also validated senator Ionel Paler to run for Bacau County Council, senator Alin Tise for Cluj County Council and senator Eugen Parvulescu for Teleorman County Council.
Regarding MEP Cristian Busoi’s running for Bucharest City Hall, Blaga mentioned he would be validated this week. In Blaga’s view, Busoi made a mistake by using photos of Colectiv tragedy to present his electoral program. Yet, he explained Busoi assumed his mistake and withdrew the banner. Busoi’s candidature was challenged right from inside the party. Liberal MP Theodor Paleologu said on Monday that the National Liberal Party is approaching local elections in ‘a totally frivolous and even suicide-like manner’ by endorsing Cristian Busoi for Bucharest City Hall.
Also on Monday, the Liberals asked PM Cioloș to issued an emergency ordinance to amend the local elections law so that mayors could be elected in two rounds, as PNL co-president Alina Gorghiu informed.
