Chairman of the Social Democratic Party (PSD) Marcel Ciolacu stated on Monday evening that he is glad that the Social Democrats have decided to form a governing coalition with the National Liberal Party (PNL).
The statement was made at a press conference held by the coalition leaders in the context of the presentation of the package of support measures for Romania, Agerpres.ro informs.
"Despite the difficulties we face, I am optimistic about our future. We have huge opportunities ahead of us. We can become Europe's food supplier. We can become the main port on the Black Sea. We can become a destination for foreign investment fleeing the war and we can become a regional leader in the reconstruction of Ukraine. The 'Support for Romania' package will meet this challenge. There is no other alternative at this time. Mr Prime Minister, I thank you. I also thank the ministers. And I want to tell you in all sincerity: I am glad that I decided, together with my colleagues, to create this coalition," Marcel Ciolacu told the press conference at the Palace of Parliament.
