The New Republic (Romanian: Noua Republică) is a political party in Romania. It was established in October 2011 as a grassroots movement inspired by a manifesto on blogs and center-right platforms. The movement grew and spawned more than 40 branches around the country. The first President was Mihail Neamțu, an intellectual who entered politics.[clarification needed] The Vice President is George Mioc. On 16 March 2015, Neamțu announced he was stepping down to focus more on his family.[1]

George Mioc also left the party in 2015. On 19 September 2015 the party had the fourth Congress in Bucharest and voted a new statute and a new president.

History[edit]

In July 2012, the party's first National Convention elected Mihail Neamțu as party president. Neamțu has a PhD degree in theology from King's College London. Soon after its founding, the party joined 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 Vice-President at that time, Valeriu Todiraşcu, was elected to the Senate.

In November 2013 the party became member of AECR(Alliance of European Conservatives and Reformists).
