SOURCES: Conflict between the President and the Prime Minister / PM Boc refuses to quit until the PDL congress and the President withdrew his support for PDL presidency
Hotnews.ro sources claim that the President reiterated his request to have PM Boc leave the executive before internal elections in the Democratic Liberal party take place. The president pleaded for a renewal of the government’s image that would help the party. According to the same sources, Boc assured Basescu that he will resign after the Congress.
After the talk, sources claim, relationships between the two cooled and Basescu told Boc he will withdraw his support for him or that he will avoid to publicly sustain him for PDL president. Sources say that Boc fears that once he resigns as head of the executive, he will lose the support of local PDL organizations which means that he will lose the internal elections.
