Will Drula reach revitalizing USR? “Delineation of GOLD and battle with REPER”, among the many challenges

“I requested for a transparent mandate and the social gathering gave it to me. To make actual opposition to the present bankrupt energy, for group and seriousness, to provide the prime minister of Romania in 2024. USR went via pure levels of growth. A civic, citizen motion. Entry into parliament and native councils. Battle with Dragnea. Affirmation in elections. Governance. It’s time for a brand new period within the evolution of this social gathering. The one among maturity and stability”, mentioned Cătălin Drula.

Within the USR presidential elections, Cătălin Drula had 5 opponents. Within the first spherical of the elections, Cătălin Teniță obtained 2,706 votes (14.8%), Octavian Berceanu 2,041 votes (11.2%), George Ungureanu 163 votes (0.9%), Alexandru Kiss 97 votes (0, 53%) and Miroslav Tașcu Stavre 138 votes (0.76%).

The results of the vote for the USR presidency will likely be validated throughout an internet congress that may happen on July 16. Cătălin Drula’s mandate on the social gathering’s management will likely be 4 years, states USR.

“For the brand new chief of the USR, it is going to be important to separate himself from the extremist AUR social gathering as a message,” says political scientist Cristian Pîrvulescu to RFI. One other drawback that looms within the perspective of the 2024 parliamentary elections is the battle for the citizens with the REPER social gathering based by Dacian Cioloș, Părvulescu additionally says.

“USR stays on an anti-system place not accepted by Dacian Cioloș. From this viewpoint, USR fails to distinguish itself very clearly from AUR. Once we take a look at the language, we discover that the nuances are related, particularly if we take a look at the message of Mr. Drula who mentioned after these elections that “bandits could be defeated”. so, the chance of being confused with far-right populism stays fairly important. The large drawback will likely be defining the ideological orientation of the social gathering, which within the earlier period had a centrist and a liberal model. Within the case of Mr. Drula, liberalism stays fairly obscure, and centrism is totally absent, concludes Pîrvulescu.
