Partidul Romania Unita
Partidul Romania Unita was on of the top 6 political parties in Romania. It was a result of the merger between Forta Democrata Romana and Romania Unita, both of them in top 10 Romanian parties, but not represented in Congress, in May 2013.
Creating a new party
The president of Romania Unita, zmeuNY, and the president of Forta Democrata Romana, Doru Gradinaru, former governor of Romanian National Bank, agreed to merge in a single party, named Uniunea Democrata Romana. Doru Gradinaru resigned as party president of FDR and join RU, together with others democrats that agreed the fusion. zmeuNY also stepped down as party president of RU, making Gradinaru the leader of party. Romania Unita formally changed it's name in Uniunea Democrata Romana, then Partidul Democrat.
The first leadership of PD was: Doru Gradinaru - president, zmeuNY - vice president, Silv1u20 - secretary general (he was also the Minister of Education of Romania after Mlendea Horatiu resigned), - councilor and - spokesman.
Remaining FDR members also resigned and joined PD. Party reached from 8th place to the 5th place of top Romanian political parties, with 253 members. In the Congress elections of 25 May 2013, the party obtained 5 congressman (Doru Gradinaru, Silv1u20, , gelu glad menumorut and ). The same result, 5 Congress seats, party repeated in June 2013 (zmeuNY, , , and ) and July 2013 (N/A).
Sometime in Autumn 2013, the party changed its name one more time - into Partidul Romania Unita, the name that will be holding for almost two years, however they had to wait to get a share of the Congress until May 2014 when they get a record number of seats - 8. Unfortunately that was the last time they were in top 5 parties in Romania.
