Romania’s former Prime Minister Victor Ponta has told Euronews he wants to stop the country from turning into a new Hungary.

He launched his political comeback bid this week after resigning three years ago following anti-corruption protests sparked by a deadly nightclub fire.

The 45-year-old, recently thrown out of the ruling social democratic party (PSD), has launched a new pro-European political movement.

It comes weeks after he was cleared of corruption charges, including 17 separate counts of forgery, complicity in tax evasion and money laundering, dating from 2007-2011 while Ponta was working as a lawyer.
