Let me address this, as long I was one of the critics.

I truly believe in transparency but you must know how to handle it in
different degrees. Waiting for a national assembly to discuss issues,
allowing for bickering, it is an error, used against PP-DE right now.

I never said "less transparency". I said that our parties must have be
transparency for our members (with party's facts also public for everyone)
and ask for governments being transparent to citizens. In other words:
transparency inside the group (party/government) to its members

By facts I mean information not attached to opinion, like financial
statements, etc.
