President Klaus Iohannis has stated on Friday upon submitting his candidacy in the presidential election that he collected over 2,200,000 signatures, adding that he wants a normal Romania for all citizens."I filed my candidacy for another mandate as President of Romania and (...), together with the PNL [the National Liberal Party] we submitted over 2,200,000 signatures of the Romanians who endorse this candidacy. It is a huge number and this thing pleases me very much. (...) I am very glad that this action of signatures collection was achieved, obviously with the support of the PNL and those who wanted to be with us. (...) What I want for my country is a normal Romania," President Iohannis stated at the Central Electoral Bureau (BEC).
Iohannis showed that "it is a complicated period for Romania and a lot of work is needed in order to repair everything that the PSD [the Social Democratic Party] has ruined in these almost three years." "Romania's modernisation is needed," the head of state added.
