PSD ministers support President’s suspension
Vice Prime Minister Paul Stănescu states that President Klaus Iohannis must be suspended from his position if he fails to sight the revocation of the National Anticorruption Directorate’s head, Laura Codruţa Kovesi, but this decision must be taken by PSD.
„I am of the same opinion with madam VP Olguţa Vasilescu, but this will be a party’s decision, we will no make a decision separately. Everyone will state his/her opinion, but it will be the party’s decision. Yes, I also say that he must be suspended (President Iohannis – editor’s note) the moment he fails to sign the revocation. We will wait and see. He said that he must read a little bit more, not that much, that’s what the President say, and when he will say that he does not agree with CCR’s decision, we will decide within the party, of course, what we should do next. We will analyze all viewpoints and take a decision inside the party”, stated Paul Stănescu.
