The Romanian Ecologist Party (Romanian: Partidul Ecologist Român), abbreviated as PER, is an ecologist political party in Romania. Without parliamentary representation, it is one of the micro-parties still active in the country with some representatives elected in the local administration (i.e. a few mayors, local councillors, and county councillors).

History[edit]

The party was founded by Adrian Manolache, an engineer, in January 1990 as a political organisation opposed to the National Salvation Front (FSN). Adrian Manolache launched the program and the platform of the PER on 5 January, 1990 in the newspaper Libertatea, being one of the newly founded parties in Romania and the second post-1989 registered one after the Christian Democratic National Peasants' Party (PNȚCD).[citation needed]

This party opposed the politics of the FSN from a very early stage and entered in an alliance with Radu Câmpeanu's National Liberal Party in April, 1990, also supporting the Timișoara Proclamation (Romanian: Proclamația de la Timisoara) which demanded that the former structures and members of the Romanian Communist Party should not get involved again in post-revolutionary politics.[citation needed]

The PER participated in the Romanian legislative election held in May, 1990, winning one senator seat as well as eight deputy seats. The first president of the party was Adrian Manolache, but the first party congress in April, 1990 elected Otto Weber as president (until 2001), when followed by Cornel Protopopescu (until 2007), the latter being subsequently replaced by Dănuț Pop.[citation needed]
