Former Culture minister Adrian Iorgulescu declared on Monday that in his view Calin Popescu Tariceanu, party president and former Prime Minister, should run for president, as he was considered as the Liberal's best choice in this regard.

"I believe that Liberals should nominate a candidate for presidency as soon as possible. Next week, during the Permanent Delegation session, we shall discuss the moment when we choose our candidate, in a congress or in an extraordinary congress. Regarding the nominees, I believe that this (Tariceanu, our note) is an option, we also have some other candidates that may face such a competition. I believe that his candidacy would be welcome and it would also be the best solution for our party", said Iorgulescu.
