During an emergency meeting today, Theodor Stolojan and Valeriu Stoica, both former presidents of the Liberal Party, were expelled from their own “yard”. The decision of the party’s board comes after a long period of intense criticism headed towards the activity of the Romanian PM, Liberal Calin Popescu Tariceanu.

“It’s like having an ambassador that tells on his fellows to the ministers in the country where he works, instead of protecting the interests of the country they represent”, said Ludovic Orban, head of the Bucharest branch of the National Liberal Party (PNL).

Yesterday, Theodor Stolojan said during a TV interview that being thrown out of the party would not surprise, but disappoint him.
