PRO Romania Social Liberal (Romanian: PRO România Social Liberal, PRO) is a social-liberal political party in Romania.
The founding of PRO Romania was initiated in 2017 by former Prime Minister Victor Ponta, former acting Prime Minister and Minister of Education Sorin Cîmpeanu and former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Environment and Climate Change Daniel Constantin. The party was formally established on 20 February 2018 in Bucharest.
Corina Crețu, European Commissioner for Regional Policy, announced on 17 January 2019 that she will candidate in the European Parliament election on behalf of PRO Romania. She will be at the second position in the list after Victor Ponta.
Only 4 days later, senator and former Minister of National Defence Adrian Țuțuianu announced that he joined the party, becoming the first senator to join PRO Romania.
PRO Romania is currently represented in the Romanian Parliament by 20 deputies and 1 senator and in the European Parliament by 2 MEPs.
The party joined the European political party European Democratic Party in February 2019. However, its MEPs sit in the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats and not in the Renew Europe group.
In 2020 Alliance of Liberals and Democrats merged into PRO Romania, and the expanded party has renamed itself into PRO Romania Social Liberal.
Since its establishment, many high-profile former members of PSD or ALDE have joined PRO Romania, including:
1 Mircea Diaconu was the candidate of the "One Man" Alliance; alliance members: Pro Romania and ALDE.
