Dacian Ciolos said ( about Liberal Parti ) : "We are aiming for a majority government, enjoying majority support in Parliament, a coalition government, because otherwise USR does not intend to support a minority government that already has the support of PSD. We came up the other day with a government agenda. (...) It doesn't even matter how USR will vote as long as PNL [National Liberal Party] has announced that it already has support in Parliament, and I understand that PSD has also announced that it can support such a minority government. (...) There seems to already exist an agreement between PNL and PSD with which they probably feel comfortable with each other, so there is no question of support from USR," External link

Dacian Ciolos wrote : "I thought that with Dragnea out, PSD will get rid of thievery, but of villainy too. Mr. Ciolacu convinces me that at least villainy remains a value in the 'new' PSD as well. Because I cannot interpret otherwise his tossing around the idea that Romania's National Recovery and Resilience Plan has been rejected by the European Commission. The last time I spoke with the European Commission President about the national recovery and resilience plans and the assessment evaluation and approval procedures was this week, on Monday. And it's clear to me that the European Commission's approach will not be that of an evaluator ticking checkboxes as they verify documents, but that of a partner to each member state, in order to make sure together that the money borrowed from the EU is invested wisely," External link

First of all, the result of this evening and which we will know more concretely tomorrow proves that the USR PLUS Alliance is one of the main forces of the country. Thanks to you, those of you who have mobilized to vote, we are able to promise that we will be there to modernize Romania. We are only halfway into these presidential elections. Everything is still playing, because what you saw here does not take into account the result of the diaspora vote and does not take into account what is still being voted, but anyway, we are only halfway and we are convinced - with what we have obtained in the European Parliament elections and now in the presidential ones - that the USR PLUS Alliance can win in the local and parliamentary elections," External link

I believe, since 2017 (...) and many people have told this to me too, that we can build a normal Romania, a Romania of common sense. But it isn’t enough to live in mornality, we must evolde and we must build things better ourselves, through the involvement of each one of us. We have two years with elections, which will be determining for what will happen in Romania until 2028-2030 and people show up at the polling stations here and abroad and this doesn’t surprise me. This is a mobilization and it makes me very glad," External link

And I mean not of the kind that only represents his/hers party interests or the interests of a group from one party or another, but a strong personality who will be able to work, while being a Romanian, to the best interest of the European Union.

Therefore, today we submit the signatures and we will continue of the same manner as we’ve done since the beginning of this year, we will go and meet people on the streets, talk to them and find solutions together.

We have managed together with the colleagues in the USR PLUS Alliance and in the Renew Europe group to act coordinately to overcome the political blockage that existed up to now, in part due to the opposition of the PSD [Social Democratic Party] Government.

(...) That has been proven in the parliamentary election when people also expressed their views on why this is happening in the country, so we are in a situation where the legitimacy of this majority had dropped to at most a third of the electorate’s support and yet in Parliament they have a majority that allowed them to remain in power.

Dacian Ciolos said ( about Liberal Parti ) : "We are aiming for a majority government, enjoying majority support in Parliament, a coalition government, because otherwise USR does not intend to support a minority government that already has the support of PSD. We came up the other day with a government agenda. (...) It doesn't even matter how USR will vote as long as PNL [National Liberal Party] has announced that it already has support in Parliament, and I understand that PSD has also announced that it can support such a minority government. (...) There seems to already exist an agreement between PNL and PSD with which they probably feel comfortable with each other, so there is no question of support from USR," External link

Dacian Ciolos wrote : "I thought that with Dragnea out, PSD will get rid of thievery, but of villainy too. Mr. Ciolacu convinces me that at least villainy remains a value in the 'new' PSD as well. Because I cannot interpret otherwise his tossing around the idea that Romania's National Recovery and Resilience Plan has been rejected by the European Commission. The last time I spoke with the European Commission President about the national recovery and resilience plans and the assessment evaluation and approval procedures was this week, on Monday. And it's clear to me that the European Commission's approach will not be that of an evaluator ticking checkboxes as they verify documents, but that of a partner to each member state, in order to make sure together that the money borrowed from the EU is invested wisely," External link

Dacian Ciolos wrote ( about Liberal Parti ) : "Our efforts in the European Parliament are working. I congratulate her, it’s her merit she got this far and convinced through proven integrity and competence in leading the DNA and the Public Ministry. We have managed together with the colleagues in the USR PLUS Alliance and in the Renew Europe group to act coordinately to overcome the political blockage that existed up to now, in part due to the opposition of the PSD [Social Democratic Party] Government. Fortunately, France and governments of member states we have had discussions with in the past months changed their position and voted for the Romanian candidate, as should have happened from the beginning if the PSD had not acted against the interest of Romania," External link

Dacian Ciolos told : "The USR colleagues have publicly declared that they will support the no-confidence vote and we have been saying for almost a year that the incumbent government has to go home. (...) That has been proven in the parliamentary election when people also expressed their views on why this is happening in the country, so we are in a situation where the legitimacy of this majority had dropped to at most a third of the electorate’s support and yet in Parliament they have a majority that allowed them to remain in power. Now, it seems the miracle is breaking down, Mr Tariceanu no longer supports the government, because he no longer finds his place and interests there," External link
