The Liberal Reformist Party (Romanian: Partidul Liberal Reformator, PLR) was a centre-right liberal political party in Romania founded on 3 July 2014 by C?lin Popescu-T?riceanu. In February 2014 the National Liberal Party (PNL) split from the Social Liberal Union alliance with the Social Democratic Party and later in July 2014 joined the European People's Party (EPP) group in the European Parliament. C?lin Popescu-T?riceanu, along with almost 30 MPs, left the PNL to establish a new liberal party in Romania, intending to become the Romanian member of ALDE and the Liberal International. The party's first congress was held on 1-2 August 2014. On 19 June 2015 the PLR merged with the Conservative Party (PC) to form the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats (ALDE).
T?riceanu has been accused by President B?sescu of interfering with justice in Dinu Patriciu's benefit.
On 24 January 2006, Monica Macovei, then Minister of Justice, made public a meeting with T?riceanu which took place 7 months before (in June 2005), and to which T?riceanu invited Dinu Patriciu. Patriciu complained to Macovei about alleged procedural problems regarding his case. Macovei accused T?riceanu of interfering with justice. On 20 February 2006 T?riceanu declared on TVR1:" I recognise my fault. I didn't act correctly. But I didn't influence justice."(in Romanian) "Îmi recunosc vina. Nu am procedat corect. Dar nu am influen?at justi?ia"
Elena Udrea recalled that, while she was Presidential Counsellor, she saw a note written by T?riceanu. In a few days President B?sescu found the note and made it public, saying that "The Prime Minister suggested to me a partnership, but, unfortunately, with our oligarchies"(in Romanian) "Domnul prim-ministru imi propunea un parteneriat, dar, din pacate, cu oligarhiile noastre". The note was about a complaint from Petromidia about the 27 May procedure problems:
1. I send you annexed a document released by Petromidia, regarding the ongoing investigations.
2. If you have the opportunity to speak at the Prosecuting Magistracy about the subject?
