The board of the Conservative party decided to expel two parliamentarians, Romeo Hanganu and Gheorghe Constantin, an official press release of the party reads. The main reason is the letter signed by the members, along with other four Liberal and Social Democrat parliamentarians.

All six MPs sent an open letter expressing their support for president Basescu, saying that “it all begun as a game, but it went too far”.

The press release of the Conservative Party claims that “as long as out party’s policy is clear and decisions are made, the acts of the two parliamentarians are extremely serious, also because the two votes in favor of Basescu’s suspension in the party board meetings”.
