“I submitted my option for candidacy to the PSD Sector 2 organization for the European Parliament elections. My colleagues unanimously approved this candidacy and I am glad, I thank them. Of course, it is a first step, the PSD Bucharest organization and the party leadership must finalize a list“, said Alexandru Rafila at Digi 24.
Rafila claimed that he has enough experience to be elected a member of the European legislature.
“I have enough experience and a bit of international interrelationship because I had the opportunity to work in various areas to be able to help Romania from the European Parliament“, said the minister.
The Minister of Health said that as far as the current position is concerned, it will be filled by someone else after anyway, since an electoral cycle is coming to an end anyway.
“I have been the Minister of Health for more than two years and it is always good to be able to hand over the baton to people coming from behind“, said Alexandru Rafila, according to News.ro.
