Geoana: PSD wants exceptional parliamentary commission to investigate presidential elections

The Social Democratic Party (PSD) asks the Parliament’s joint Standing Bureaus to set up an exceptional parliamentary commission to investigate the presidential elections, that being the unanimous decision of the PSD National Standing Bureau, party president Mircea Geoana announced on Monday.

In his opinion, the evidence the PSD submitted to Romania’s Constitutional Court (CCR) is extremely solid and reconfirms that the elections were rigged. Geoana announced that the PSD had asked the CCR to recount the ballots on the special lists cast in the Dec. 6 presidential runoff and it is waiting for an answer in this respect.
‘We are ever more convinced that the elections cannot flow in a direction which is to make the future president so severely doubtful about the legitimacy of a presidential mandate,’ he said, also expressing hope that all the parliamentary parties would agree on such a move.

In Geoana’s opinion, shedding light on it is both in his interest, and to incumbent President Traian Basescu’s. ‘Entering a presidential term with such a suspicion represents a burden and a sort of curse which we must not allow,’ he added.

The PSD president also announced he would this week ask for a meeting of the Parliament’s joint Standing Bureaus and a joint plenary sitting to be called, in order to take note of the validation of the referendum for the Parliament’s alteration, but where it will be also proposed the start of the parliamentary procedures to change the Constitution. ‘We are willing to contribute to a thorough debate on the type of republic we aim at in the 21st century,’ Geoana argued.
