The prime minister arrived at the meeting in Craiova coming from the Gorj county, affected by floods. Victor Ponta inspected Tuesday afternoon, the Bengeşti village of Gorj county and a dam built in the area as well as the town of Novaci, where a flood of more than three meters high hit the town, hundreds of people being evacuated. He then turned towards the town of Polovraci.The most important statements of PM Ponta: We were all ready to launch my candidacy for the highest position in the state. I've already started my candidacy a littke earlier, in Novaci, at Bengeşti, together with people who actually represent the real Romania, not the Romania presented in the books.
I launched my candidacy without having planned it in this way, along the heroes who rescued the people from the floods I launched my candidacy together with brave people and along desperate people. I belive I launched my candidacy together with the Romanians, along those who have needed and still need to know they are not alone in their need
I am convinced we will succeed in everything that we intend to do
The true Romania is the one you know, you know what each Romanian is facing, you know that the dams must be repaired by us.
Our duty is to be there for people when they need it, to give people the confidence that they live in a strong country.
Today I am convinced that we will win in November and that my term as president will look like this, like today, with problems, with people, fixing things
I am ready for five years, for 10 years, to do in Romania something that has not been done before
I want us to end the 25 years of transition, of sacrificed generations. I wish to be the president of Romanians, not of Romania
I can’t imagine a life somewhere else other than in Romania
I want you to join me in my belief that Romania has got a chance to change
I am that candidate who wants to change fundamentally everything that has been bad over the last 10 years.
My main foreign policy objective is to speed up the integration of the Republic of Moldova into the European Union. We must support the Church and the religious cults I strongly believe that nobody is above the law, justice has to punish the guilty, and it must be equal for the poor and for the rich I want to be a useful president I want to be a different president of Romania
