History

In July 2012, the party's first National Convention elected Mihail Neamțu as party president. Neamțu is a public intellectual with a PhD degree in theology from King's College London. Soon after its foundation, the party joined the Right Romania Alliance (ARD), together with the former governing party, Democratic Liberal Party (PDL); Civic Force, the party of former Prime Minister Mihai Răzvan Ungureanu; and the Christian Democratic National Peasants' Party (PNTCD). The party filled 9 candidates on the ARD list at 2012 legislative election, but because of administrative problems, New Republic's candidates ran as independents or under PNTCD's logo instead. The party's First Vice-President, Valeriu Todirascu, was elected to the Senate.

Ideology

The New Republic was born as a civic movement protesting against a corrupt and untrustworthy establishment. It called for seizing the opportunities of growth and development, which former Communist and populist politicians have squandered. The New Republic movement supported the middle-class citizens, while critiquing local Sultanism and Statism.

The New Republic party called for a radical departure from old-style politics, as shaped by former nomenklatura. The New Republic called for the revival of civil society, in an attempt to surpass the cynicism and mistrust of older generations. Among its principles, one counts the support for natural rights, private property, free market, entrepreneurship, limited government, and for the Judeo-Christian values.
