The latest surveys have worried Adrian Năstase, president of the National Council of the Social Democrat Party. The Mizil deputy is both concerned that his party is losing certain basic electoral sectors and confident that the president Traian Băsescu can be defeated at the presidential elections this year.

Năstase has referred to the CURS survey according to which the alliance SDP-CP would obtain 30% of the votes if the elections for the European Parliament were held next week, while the D-LP would have 66% of the votes, and he has added on his blog that this indicates a credibility loss without precedent for Traian Băsescu. "I have always believed that Traian Băsescu can be defeated. First of all, because he has done so much evil, it was impossible not come out. But also because, in hard times such as the current crisis, he does not have and he has never had any solutions”, considers the social-democrat, also mentioning that "for Romania, the replacement of Traian Băsescu could mean a step forward”. The Mizil deputy shows that in order for the chief of the state "to lose” his presidential chair, it is not sufficient for the SDP to wait for his "fall”, but an "exemplary” mobilization is needed on behalf of the party so that "when Traian Băsescu is corroded sufficiently, the support for our candidate will be definitive for the winning of the elections”. However, the social-democrat is concerned by the loss of the electorate from Moldavia and the rural environment, sectors on which the Social Democrat Party could count prior to this. "In Moldavia, for example, where the SDP had an important and constant electoral sector, the Democrat Liberal Party is ahead of the SDP by 6%, according to the BCS report. It is true that, as a nucleus, Moldavia is ours, but we are in the backwaters of the democrat-liberals, and the DLP has not even been a leader in the race so far. A similar statement can be made for the rural environment, where there is the majority of our traditional electorate. We are also losing ground here; this is shown by the latest surveys. Unfortunately, the rural areas are no longer our electoral locomotive”, writes Năstase in his blog.
