Change of situation in USL. Unhappy with the fact that the protocol governing their alliance with PNL (Centre-Right Alliance) is not working, the Conservatives said yesterday they would, from now on, be a member of USL as a distinct party that would defend its positions independently of PNL. The announcement was made by PC spokesman Bogdan Ciuca after the meeting of the Executive Bureau of the party.
‘The protocol with ACD doesn’t physically function. There haven’t been many local or national meetings. It doesn’t mean we have a problem with USL, USL continues to be PC’s dearest project and we believe it to be PC’s most important victory, next to PSD and PNL. Since there haven’t been many such meetings, we want to make known that all PC’s positions from now on will be PC’s and all PNL’s positions will be PNL’s. (…) We do not seek a break-up or a defection’, Mediafax quotes Ciuca as having said. He noted that PC was making the announcement in order not to be asked all the time if a PC project or initiative has been discussed in ACD. ‘We have discussed it, but we haven’t met and the protocol isn’t physically working because of the government or local problems. We have good relations, but it doesn’t work’, explained the Conservative.
