The party claims to adhere to a "national-democratic" doctrine based on the ideas of Romanian historian and politician Nicolae Iorga and centered on principles of social justice, economic protectionism, Romanian nationalism and anticorruption.[7] According to a resolution adopted in September 2015, it opposes migrant quotas, same-sex marriage, adoption of the euro, Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), among others.[8] The party's adversaries consider that it wears a mimetic nationalist stance, former 'PSD-ists and clerks of Voicescu were not and will never be nationalists'. Prominent members (ex. vicepresident Ovidiu Hurduzeu) of the party support the "immediate Romanian withdrawal from the EU and NATO" publishing messages such as 'The Ceaușescu times were better!' on websites.[9] In the 2016 Romanian legislative election, the party received 207,608 votes in the Senate election, and 196,602 in the election to the Chamber of Deputies, not achieving the parliamentary status.



The United Romania Party characterizes itself as follows:

We are a young team that believes in Romania and its values and which proposes an alternative to the entire political class after 1990. Our ideals are of a Strong and United Romania, respecting rights for every Romanian citizen.

Party criticism


In July 2016, Daniel Ghiță, kickboxing world champion, left the party, disagreeing with the party president at the time, Bogdan Diaconu, stating that he does not follow the principles he promotes.[10]
