The Democrat Liberal Party (PDL) will hold an extraordinary national convention on 30 June, the leadership decided today (Tues).
Some 1,450 representatives of the party will be selected from among the local branches that got the best results in 10 June mayoral and municipal elections, in order to elect a new leadership.
The acting president, former Prime Minister (PM) Emil Boc said today that he won’t run for re-election nor for any other leadership position. Boc won the mayor mandate in Cluj, his hometown.
PDL suffered a crushing defeat in the local elections, scoring less than 15 percent of mayor and County council president mandates nationwide.
Voters sanctioned the Dem Libs for the dramatic austerity measures, the widespread corruption and the anti-democratic tendencies. Boc and his cabinet stepped down last December following massive street protests. He was replaced by former chief spy Mihai razvan Ungureanu, whose cabinet was toppled by a no confindence vote, only 37 days after it was validated by Parliament. The new majority formed by the Social Liberal Union formed the new cabinet, headed by Social Democrat leader Victor Ponta.
