The Social-Democratic Party (PSD), in a press release calls the President as ‘Iohannis the divider’, reports that misinformation, manipulation and public lies are daily practices “meant to maintain a climate of profound hostility towards the democratically elected government,” and that President Klaus Iohannis is the main one responsible for the current state of the Romanian society.
The communiqué was sent less than an hour before President Iohannis’ message about the abuses committed by the authorities to the Diaspora protest Friday night.
The Social-Democrats reproach the president that he encouraged ‘the anarchic protests’, and that is why violence came and “collective psychosis, of maximum hostility” was supported by the head of state, including the “support of trivial anti-PSD slogans”.
The party also said it is unacceptable that, instead of getting the support from the President, the military, the police or the gendarmes receive accusations and thus urge him to behave as a President of Romanians, by helping to strengthen the rights and democratic freedoms.
“Romania is reaping the fruits of hate, of division and misleading propaganda policy promoted by President Klaus Werner Iohannis and his followers. Now, in the year of the Centenary of the Union, the country is more divided than ever, intolerance is high and violent language and attitude reach violent forms in the street against the institutions of the Romanian state. The law is violated and turned around at the pleasure of professional challengers,” PSD informs in a press release.
The Social-democrats also say that misinformation and lies are daily practices “designed to maintain a climate of profound hostility to the democratic power,” and that President Klaus Iohannis is the main responsible for the current state of the Romanian society.
“The President of Romania, Klaus Werner Iohannis, is the main one responsible for the current state of the Romanian society. Now, after his latest manifestations of incitement to social anarchy and timing of public authority, it is all the more obvious that Iohannis did not want to, did not know to, or he could not be the president of all the Romanians, the institutional moderator, the impartial arbitrator of the Constitution. On the contrary, he has chosen to become the divider,” the release reads.
PSD also says the president has encouraged the anarchic protests and that’s why violence has gone to violence. The group says that “the collective psychosis, of maximum hostility, was upheld by President Iohannis, including the legitimacy of trivial anti-PSD swearing.”
