Referring to speculations in various Romanian and EU media outlets, the ALDE Party would like to clarify that the Romanian Party Partidul Național Liberal (PNL) is a full member of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe Party.
Following the resignation of Party leader Crin Antonescu, a Congress will be held on Saturday 28 June 2014 where members of the PNL will discuss among other things their European affiliation. Any change of affiliation of the Party would require a change in their statutes by this Congress.
As of today no other European political party has received an application form as this would contravene current PNL party statues.
The ALDE Party is confident that PNL will stay with the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats instead of joining forces with the political family of Romanian President Traian Băsescu.
