  • [01] PRM - PUNR-Funar Wing Cooperation Protocol

    A cooperation protocol between Greater Romania Party (PRM) and the Funar wing of Romanians' National Unity Party (PUNR) was signed by its leaders, Corneliu Vadim Tudor and Gheorghe Funar, at the PRM headquarters in Bucharest. The document stipulates, among other things, that the two parties should make joint efforts to dismiss the current Government and form a new one, a Government of national unity. Under the same protocol, both parties express their commitment to outlaw the Democratic Union of Ethnic Hungarians in Romania (UDMR) and put an end to the distruction of Romanian heritage and economy. PRM leader Corneliu Vadim Tudor said the document is a first step to a future Great Alliance for the Revival of Fatherland. RADOR, February 12

    [02] Valeriu Tabara Says There Is Only One PUNR Party

    The leader of the Romanians' National Unity Party (PUNR) has reminded Corneliu Vadim Tudor, the leader of Greater Romania Party (PRM), that there is only one party legally registered under the name of PUNR in Romanian political life. In a communique, Mr Tabara wishes to stress that Gheorghe Funar has lost his PUNR membership last November. "We mention that there is no party or group under the name of PUNR-Funar in Romanian political life", Mr Tabara says in his communique expressing at the same time his willingness to start a friendly political dialogue with PRM representatives.

    [03] ApR Angry about Statements of Adrian Nastase

    The Vicepresident of the Alliance for Romania party (ApR), Marian Enache, said that any possibility of achieving a Social-Democrat alliance is hampered by the arogance and the insulting manner of the statements made by Adrian Nastase, Vicepresident of the Party of Social Democracy in Romania (PDSR). Mr Enache added that such statements are aimed at intimidating the ApR party, but he expressed his hope that PDSR leader Ion Iliescu would temper Adrian Nastase. Mr Enache has indicated that his party was ready to start a civilised and open dialogue with PDSR if this party would promote a more flexible policy. RADOR, February 12

    [04] PNTCD - BNS Meeting

    The governing Christian-Democrat National Peasant Party (PNTCD) and the National Trade Union Block (BNS) have agreed on Wednesday to establish a contact group aimed at improving their relations. After meeting the PNTCD President Ion Diaconescu, BNS leader Dumitru Costin has announced that the parties have agreed to intensify their dialogue in future. Participants will include reform and privatisation experts as well as BNS leaders. Mr Costin has stressed that the next meetings will try to find different solutions aimed at covering both the reform and the restructuring of public services and commercial companies.

    [05] Negotiations between Government and Sanitas Federation Representatives Have Failed

    Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ciorbea met Sanitas trade unionists on Wednesday. The meeting was aimed at discussing trade unions' demands, and participants included Finance Minister Daniel Daianu, Labour Minister Alexandru Athanasiu, Health Minister Ioan Bruckner and Sanitas leader Marius Petcu. Mr Petcu said after the meeting that the Government can ensure only a 25% raise in the salaries but it could try to find new financial resources in the next two month, before the Law of the budget will be approved. The Sanitas leader has warned that, in such conditions, the conflict will reach its climax on Thursday, 10 AM, when a general strike is to start. Mr Petcu added that he expects the strike to affect every medical service throughout the country in the next few days. Trade unionists would have wished to obtain an increase of their salaries between 25% and 100%. RADOR, February 12

    [06] Light Industry Trade Unionists Ready for Strike

    Trade unionists in the Romanian light industry have asked the Government to cancel custom duties on cotton imports. During a press conference organised at the CNSRL Fratia (Brotherhood) headquarters on Wednesday, trade union leaders have indicated that such duties will lead the light industry to bankruptcy and they warned they were ready for general strike if the Government did not intend to change its decision. According to ROMPRES news agency, the leader of Textila Bucegi trade union in Pucioasa said the measure of imposing 58% custom duties/1 tonne of cotton was aimed at increasing budget resources.

    [07] New Pay System for State Financed Cultural Institutions

    The Commission for culture, arts and media in the House of Deputies and Labour Ministry representatives have discussed solutions for a new pay system in state financed cultural institutions. Government representatives presented a report on the basic principles of the system. They indicated that the new regulations will insure a growing efficiency and real management responsabilities. The commissioners fear the system could be "overused" by those who grant credits. RADOR, February 12

    [08] MAE Spokesman on Romania's Position Concerning the Iraqi Crisis

    The US have already asked Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic to express their support for a virtual military intervention in Iraq. In case Romania was to answer a similar demand, Romanian Foreign Ministry spokesman Mihnea Motoc wanted to stress that the US and Romania are engaged in consultations concerning the strategic partnership which involves a closer cooperation in many fields of common interest. Referring to the demand the US could make, Mr Motoc said he could neither confirm nor deny such suppositions. In a statement delivered to the press last week, the Romanian Foreign Ministry (MAE) expressed its concern for recent developments in relations between the UN and Irak. The ministry reiterated its position and said that the only way to lift the UN sanctions on Iraq is to observe unconditionally the UN Security Council resolutions. RADOR, February 12

    [09] "The Personality: A Cultural Institution" - A Round Table Hosted by the Romanian Cultural Centre in New York

    In an interview with radio VOICE OF AMERICA, Coriolan Babeti, Director of the Romanian Cultural Centre in New York, provided information concerning a round table on "The Personality: A Cultural Institution" that his institution has hosted recently. "It is important to say that, sometimes, when crisis or dictatorship do happen, the personality is the one who replaces institutions and leads the world further on", Mr Babeti said in this context. Presidential adviser Zoe Petre, writer Dumitru Radu Popa, director Andrei Serban and professor Dinu Gheto as well as American officials participated in the event. RADOR, February 12
