Mircea Geoana reelected PSD president
font size    

Mircea Geoana was reelected Romania's Social Democratic Party (PSD) president on Sunday at a PSD extraordinary Congress.

More than 1,500 delegates of the main opposition PSD convened in an extraordinary congress on Sunday, an occasion on which they had voted on a new statute and new leader.

The Social Democrats had to opt for PSD presidency between present-day leader Mircea Geoana and Senators Sorin Oprescu, president of the Bucharest branch of the PSD.

According to PSD sources, by getting 981 votes, Geoana won against Senator Sorin Oprescu who obtained only 385 votes.

During the congress, Romania's ex-President Ion Iliescu was elected honorary president of the party.

Titus Corlatean was elected general secretary with 40 votes more than Miron Mitrea, the current general secretary.

PSD gained the largest share of the vote in the legislative elections of 2004, but because it did not have a majority, all the other major parties formed the Justice and Truth alliance, which managed to gain a parliamentary majority and is currently in government, putting the PSD into opposition.
