Prime Minister Florin Citu said on Monday that USR PLUS prefers to stand by PSD and AUR through statements that a coalition can be rebuilt without him as prime minister, underscoring that the PNL sees its future beyond government.
The PNL leader was asked whether negotiations for the restoration of the coalition would be resumed as soon as possible, given the statements made by USR PLUS co-chairs Dacian Ciolos and Dan Barna, namely that there would be no way of negotiating if he stayed in office.
"I tell you how I read these statements: USR prefers to sit next to PSD and AUR. It is clear. If this is the discussion and they do not want to talk to PNL, it means that they prefer to sit next to PSD and AUR. It is the choice of USR," Florin Citu said at the PNL headquarters.
Regarding a possible discussion with USR PLUS after the congress of this party or after the Constitutional Court's decision decision on the motion of censure, he stated: "We always talk to them, if they have the availability to talk to PNL."
"I am confident that in the end USR will win the reason and they will understand that next to PSD and next to AUR they have nothing to gain," added Citu, Agerpres informs.
