Seventeen of the 21 members of the Suceava-based PSD branch’s bureau unanimously voted in favour of the exclusion of the ex-PSD Senator.
The reason for Cozmanca’s self-suspension is an excuse only, because according to the PSD Statute, in case of self-suspension, it is but the incompatibility of a position with the Party’s membership or the legal investigation that can be invoked, which is not valid in Cozmanca’s case, Suceava PSD branch’s spokesman Virgil Iordache said.
Suceava County’s PSD members think that Cozmanca era faded away and PSD evolved into a new stage, which needs no ‘good father’ any longer.
Iordache described the former PSD Senator’s gesture as a ‘nostalgic and inopportune response,’ and its self-suspension from the Party as a new stage in the Party’s reforming ‘PSD’s return to Octav Cozmanca’s era is out of question.
Former PSD members like Contac, Mischie or Cozmanca failed understanding that PSD switched to a new stage. Even Cozmancas’s leaving is a stage the PSD’s reform,’ Iordache stressed.
