Geoana also claimed that Basescu would be behind the defy to break up the ruling coalition, arguing that the President ‘wants to change tactics because he has seen he has nothing to gain from winning over PSD for the government.’
‘This movement is part of a stratagem that started some months ago and does not originate with Emil Boc of the Democratic-Liberal Party (PD-L, PSD’s partner in the coalition), but with Traian Basescu.
Traian Basescu believed that by winning over PSD for the government he will quietly secure for himself a second term in office, but lo and behold things are going in another direction. And then, he wants to change tactics, but he does not know how. And he is trying to provoke us, to tear up and down,’ said Geoana.
The PSD official argues that the provocateur of political instability will be judged for many years, not just in this year’s election, ‘as the main culprit for a prolonged severe crisis and Romanians can judge what the incumbent President did and what he did not in the past five years.’ He added that he does not want to sound judgmental, but ‘the incumbent President being in office for five more years would be dangerous to Romania.’
