Partidul Totul Pentru Țară

ECP appeared as a feedback to the continuity and consolidation of the system structures before 1989, the development of the corrupt and immoral politicians, and the founders believing that the last have threatened the existence of the Romanian nation and the Romanian unitary national state, threatening the Romania with the isolation from the civilized world. Under these circumstances, the old fighters considered that the National Resistance should continue, but under the conditions and frameworks provided by the Rule of Law. PTT worships the legionnaires Corneliu Zelea Codreanu, Horia Sima or Radu Gyr, as it appears from the publication "Buciumul".

DoctrineEdit

ECP relies on the national-Christian doctrine values, standing at the right of the Romanian political scene. The basic principles and values of the ECP are discipline, moral order, national and Christian values, and Rule of Law. From the ideological point of view, PPPs is against racism, chauvinism, totalitarianism and extremism of any kind.

The founders of ECP have repeatedly stated that this party is the only political force that legitimately pursues the spirit of the National Anticommunist Resistance.

Unlike the cuzist's ideology and same of the Legionary one, ECP has not formally adopted anti-Semitism as a social goal or practice.[4]
