Social Democratic leader says Romanian opposition would support incumbent Sorin Oprescu for Bucharest Mayor
Ponta said that USL would support Oprescu even if influential Social Democratic and Liberal district mayors in Bucharest would not be happy by such a move.
But Mayor Sorin Oprescu said he wanted to run as an independent for a second term in office in the next local elections. "If they (USL) want to support me, I will still stick to my position as an independent. I am honored by this support", he said.
