The People’s Movement Party (PMP) President Elena Udrea says that the party she leads will back the variant of a single candidate of the Right in the presidential elections, if the Democratic Liberal Party (PDL) and the National Liberal Party (PNL) back the PMP candidate Cristian Diaconescu.
“We do not rule this out, we would really back a single candidate of the Right, but that means for PDL and PNL to back our candidate,” Elena Udrea told a Thursday’s press conference.
She said that, in the current version, PMP would back the Right’s candidate only in the runoff of the presidential elections.
“If our candidate is not in the runoff, then obviously we will back the Right’s candidate. But if our candidate enters the runoff, then it is normal for the other rightist parties to back the PMP candidate,” Udrea mentioned.
In this context, the PMP president criticized PDL over being the biggest opponent of President Traian Basescu.
“This merger, the alliance between PNL and PDL, was made on an anti-President project. The paradox is that the most vocal opponents of Traian Basescu’s are those in PDL. And that was done with excluding or marginalizing the PMP electorate and the electors of President Traian Basescu. Therefore, PMP is going on its way, which also means to have its own candidate at least in the first round,” Elena Udrea concluded.
