President Iohannis: I wish motion of censure to be successful; transition gov't to be built around PNL

President Klaus Iohannis on Wednesday stated he very much wished the motion of censure to be adopted by Parliament today, and showed that, in the event this document will indeed pass, a transition government will be built around PNL (National Liberal Party) to ensure "a serious, disciplined transition until the parliamentary elections."

"I want to say this very clearly, so that everyone will understand and fault finders won't find anything to comment upon this time, for they are all over the place these days, at the left and at the right, here and there, don't hope in vain that they aren't: I very much wish the motion of censure to pass tomorrow in Parliament, to be successful, so that this failure of a Government will finally leave, and you are those around which a new government will be built that will ensure a serious, disciplined transition until the parliamentary elections," said Iohannis at the regional meeting of the PNL organisaitons in the Bucharest-Ilfov area.

He told Liberals together they will win. "But for this, my dear Liberals, we need to get involved and we need to fight, and you have started to do that very well, here, in Bucharest, You have collected so many signatures in Bucharest and Ilfov, as many as others managed to collect in the entire country," said Iohannis.

The head of the state also said it was "sensational" that PNL won the elections to the European Parliament and the fact that the referendum on justice passes was also "noteworthy."

"This was only the beginning. We are now preparing for the presidential elections and, if I get your enthusiasm well, our chances are really high. But then we need to also win the local and the parliamentary elections and then we can start together to put Romania back on track. Then, my dear Liberals, we can start to rebuild Romania. There are many who want to know when we will start. We are starting tomorrow, as soon as the Dancila Government is dismissed," said Iohannis.

He went on to say that Romania is now facing a very unpleasant and unexpected situation with PSD at rule.

"PSD, in reality, is the main obstacle in Romania's development! PSD (Social Democratic Party) won those elections, because people stayed home. And if we want to be very sincere maybe we should have also done more, we should have been more active, more convincing in asking Romanians to show up at the polling stations in December 2016. Maybe this time we manage to do a little more, because we are all fed up with this PSD," said Iohannis.

He also criticized PSD (Social Democratic Party) for the modifications brought to the justice laws and brought to mind that the matter of the Special section for magistrates is still to be solved, and it will be solved.

"PSD promised you the moon and the starts, but when they came to power they did what they knew best, they placed incompetent people (many times) in high public positions, people who were, in exchange, loyal to the PSD leadership, they started to dismantle and subordinate the large public systems in Romania, and what did they achieve? They managed to take some backsteps, when there were so many chances for Romania to develop. We could have, if PSD didn't block us so many times, reached the level of the big European states. For Europe respects us, wants us. (...) PSD started to drive on the wrong way from the very first day it got at rule and stayed there. I did everything that a president of Romania could have done. I don't like to brag, I am not a man of big words, but since we already watched those videos and we managed to dismiss the two elephants, who failed to bring any amnesty or pardon, and failed to ruin the Criminal Codes as they imagined to ruin them, I want to tell you that you shouldn't think we managed to do that because their mind got better, but because I fought them. And the justice laws, you remember how many times I sent those back to Parliament and the CCR (Constitutional Court of Romania), they didn't come out perfect, but they are still better than intended. We still have, however, that matter with the Specials section for magistrates to solve, and we will solve it," Iohannis said at the regional meeting of the PNL organisations in the Bucharest-Ilfov area.

He also said "PSD people even tried to take revenge on the Romanians physically, and not metaphorically," bringing thus to mind the August 10 2018 protests, when he said the gendarmes were equipped as for "an urban war."

"The PSD people said they were not the ones who did it, for they were not in the Capital City at the time. They tried to put Romanians to silence. They failed. Romanians paid them back! They no longer stayed at home on May 26, they got out and voted and the National Liberal Party won! Now, my dears, let's mobilize our forces once more for the presidential eelctions roo, and for the local and parliamentary ones," underscored Iohannis.
