The president of the Permanent Electoral Authority (AEP), Constantin Buica has announced that AEP will not reimburse the sum of RON 3,380,000 spent by PSD in the electoral campaign of the EP elections, arguing the signature on the filed documents did not belong to the chairman of the party at that time, meaning by Liviu Dragnea.
The AEP official explained that the documents asking for the money reimbursement had been filed after the decision to not reimburse the sum and that the decision cannot be annulled according to the Law 554.
Buica said that PSD can challenged the AEP decision in court.
The Social Democrats who contributed to the EP elections campaign started to ask for their money back after the decision announced by AEP that the sums will not be reimbursed. AEP move came due to the criminal file in which the former PSD treasurer Mirce Draghici is investigated for an alleged fraud with the party subsidies.
