Dragnea: PSD has 35pc in the polls. „There is a plan to remove the Gov’t”. “They want me behind bars”

PSD chairman Liviu Dragnea has claimed there is a plan to remove the Government and that the actions against him lately are no coincidence, but they come amid president Iohannis’ and Opposition leaders’ latest public stances.


„There has been a sort of coordination, a succession between events and actions on Friday. Iohannis came out public and said <get rid of Dragnea>. #Rezist said <get rid of Dragnea>. The entire Opposition, led by Iohannis said there are no abuses and problems here. No letter was needed to say that we endorse the lobby law which has been on the ministry’s website for two weeks. It follows Austria’s pattern,”  Dragnea told Antena 3.
