Geoana admitted it was a very difficult moment for him, but he also specified he will remain leader of the PSD, position from which he will continue to fight for the value promoted by his project ‘A Single Romania’.
‘I accept the CCR decision. It is unfortunate that, the consistent evidence we have provided of the massive fraud in the presidential elections and our request to have such evidence checked were not accepted by the Court. The suspicion the elections were fraudulent will hunt Romania and our democracy several years from now.
As a citizen in democratic Romania, I will accept the decision ruled by the Court and I will wish good luck to Traian Basescu in his new tenure. I have already talked to him on the phone before I make this public announcement and I’ve told him I hope he will be more even-temperate in his new tenure, with less excessive gesture and more interest in the citizens’, the PSD head said.
According to him, the fight for the top job in Romania is now finished, but with the struggle to find out the truth related to the elections to continue.
‘That’s why, I propose the setting up of a parliamentary committee of inquiry to present, in the shortest time possible, the truth and deficiencies about the electoral system much too vulnerable to money, to electoral bribery, to those who tried to denigrate me in a constant manner through insults and dirty attacks’, Geoana said, while voicing hope the next presidential elections in Romania will express in a correct and ‘untainted’ manner the electorate’s will.
