On this matter, Antonescu stated that the results of the vote within the party made everybody happy: "The result of the vote is already known by now. Everybody is happy - Mr. Iohannis, because he was nominated; the party, because it nominated him; myself, because I got what I asked for: the designation through a clear, fair, civilized, elegant vote; we′ll see about the rest," Antonescu declared. According to the political representative, the vote has been secret and in accordance with PNL′s statute. He added that the Iohannis presidential project was not questioned, because there was no such project.

Around 4th or 5th of August, the newly formed alliance will announce their candidate for the presidential run to be held in November.
