President Klaus Iohannis has hailed his victory, dubbing it “the most categorical victory obtained against PSD”, a victory of a “normal Romania” where all voters should find their place, either from PNL, USR-PLUS, UDMR or PSD.
I have no war with the PSD voters, I am at war with PSD“.
It’s an important victory, the most categorical one ever obtained against PSD. I receive this victory with joy, but also with modesty and with confidence in Romania”.
He added though that the war is not “won” , while calling on Romanians to also vote in the local and parliamentary elections.
Iohannis had a special mention for the Romanians in Diaspora who turned out to poll is large numbers.
In her turn, the PSD candidate, the loser of these elections, Viorica Dancila had a brief press statement at the PSD HQs, when she thanked those who “voted with their heart”, while claiming that PSD has won again the voters that it had lost at the EP elections.
She underlined she won’t resign from the PSD helm, arguing she doesn’t consider herself to blame for this outcome and that only the Congress of the party can decide to strip her from the chairwoman position.
