Crin Antonescu won't stay forever at the helm of the National Liberal Party (a member of the USL ruling alliance alongside PSD and PC - Editor's note), and the unification of the Right is possible only around the Democratic Liberal Party (PDL, opposition), just as the political alliance "Justice and Truth" was forged.
"I never opposed such a Right-wing unification project. On the contrary, I have always supported it. We want the political Right to unify around the Democratic Liberal Party, respecting everyone else, but the base is here, this is where the heart of the Right lies," Blaga said.
The PDL leader also spoke about his ex-party colleagues who did their best to splinter the Right, to break "chunks" off PDL and who now "so lovingly" talk about the unification of the Right. Blaga underscored that although PDL members outnumber the others several times, they definitely need them too, yet under certain conditions.
The PDL chairman also expressed his belief that everyone will prove enough responsibility for them to go united into the 2014 presidential elections, but emphasized that PDL will run on its own in the EU parliamentary elections, relying on the work of each and every party member.
"We will prove that we are the second most important party of the country, and the first Right-wing party, that we will defeat the Liberals. That's when we will speak of the unification of the Right. That's how I see it, I think that in five to six years the Romania's political Right will need a large party. We must admit that currently the two major Right-wing parties are PDL and PNL. We will have the tact and wits to make whatever stands in our power to unify the Right, but the Romanian Right can only be rebuilt around PDL," Blaga underscored.AGERPRES
