Tudose: Romanians want stability

Mihai Tudose, the campaign coordinator of the PSD for the European Parliament, stated in his turn that they received the results of a survey showing that Romanians want joint elections.

“We were waiting for a sociological research about what Romanians want and to act in this sense. That sociological research reached us last night, at 12 midnight. We give you for the first time the fact that more than 60% of Romanians want the merger and an even larger majority, they want the continuity of the government, stability and coherence in the government”, said Tudose.
