PSD’s chairman Liviu Dragnea featured in The Guardian: “His ideology is himself”
As European top leaders prepare to get together for the EU informal summit in Sibiu, Romania, The Guardian published an article featuring ruling Social Democrat Party leader, Liviu Dragnea, dubbed as “the most powerful politician in the summit’s host country” who will be among the most significant absentees of the summit.
The British leading newspaper reminds that Liviu Dragnea had been sentenced to three years and a half in prison last year for abuse of office and that he had appealed this verdict.
The journalists from The Guardian compared Dragnea to Hungarian PM Viktor Orbán or to the Polish ruling party leader Jaroslaw Kaczyński, stating that Dragnea’s ideology is himself.
“Dragnea, the leader of Romania’s ruling Social Democratic party (PSD), has become as vexing a figure for many in Brussels as Hungary’s prime minister, Viktor Orbán, or the head of Poland’s ruling Law and Justice party, Jaroslaw Kaczyński, even if he is lesser-known than his more outspoken regional counterparts due to his behind-the-scenes role.”
