  • [01] PD Vicepresident Traian Basescu on monitoring the government

    The Vicepresident of the Democratic Party (PD) Traian Basescu explained his party's opinion on ways of monitoring the government through the council recently created. He said PD will not become a group only interested in how ministries were doing their job: "We are interested in the documents aimed at improving their activity, we are interested to see how they work as institutions". Mr Basescu admitted PD was actually dissatisfied with the current government as itShad too many members. In his party's opinion, a 17 member cabinet would be efficient enough. When asked if PD was to support this idea in case it was to join the governing coalition again, Mr Basescu replied: "Absolutely. This was one of the reasons why we have left it. When the government was first reshuffled we have publicly pointed out that we were not supposed to accept a parliament-style government, nor in number neither in its acting manner. We have pleaded for an efficient and flexible government reflecting both the current need and ability of making decisions". RADOR, February 16

    [02] CA First Vicepresident disagree with the PD monitoring of the government

    While in Targoviste where he participated in the meeting of the Civic Alliance (AC) branch of Dambovita county, AC First Vicepresident Valerian Stan said the PD way of monitoring the government through a fake one was only aimed at increasing mistrust among coalition partners. In his opinion, the PD move is artifical and inacSeptable as the party wishes to criticise the government publicly while it is still a member of the governing coalition. On the other hand, Mr Stan said the AC will support the idea of early elections only in case there are no guarantees the current government will resist. In that case, early elections should be organised as soon as possible, he added. RADOR, February 16

    [03] PNTCD Vicepresident Vasile Lupu is preparing a new legal initiative

    At a press conference on Sunday, Deputy Vasile Lupu, Vicepresident of the governing PNTCD party, expressed his support for hard penalties against those who commit serious crimes. He said he is against any protection of those who breake the law, irrespective of their political opinions. Mr Lupu has announced he was preparing a legal initiative to amend reglementations concerning the House of Deputies. He said that deputies should be subject of inquiry if they were allegedly guilty of breaking the law. On the other hand, the PNTCD MP said he was against early elections and he expressed his belief that the current government will succeed in fulfilling its mandate. Vasile Lupu said he shared the idea of raising the election threshhold to 5%. If there are to be fewer parties in parliament, then the ruling actions are to be positive and the stability will be safer, Mr Lupu added. RADOR, February 16

    [04] Statement of ApR leader Teodor Melescanu

    Teodor Melescanu, the leader of the Alliance for Romania party, the party's accession to the Socialist International and closer relations with the PD and the Romanian Social Democrat Party (PSDR) are among its main task. "We have mentioned that if we were to hit these tasks, we should not only contact such structures from abroad, but we should intensify our dialogue with similar parties at home such as PD and PSDR. How shall we do it? By discussing issues concerning our programmes and our structures and by approximating them to those of the Socialist International", Mr Melescanu said. RADOR, February 16

    [05] PUNR proposal to evaluate FPS activity in 1997

    PUNR MP groups have presented legal initiatives to the Permanent Bureaux in both Houses of the Romanian Parliament. They propose the setting up of a special commission to open an enquiry into the FPS (State Owneship Fund) activity last year. The Romanians' National Unity Party (PUNR) would like its proposal to be discussed during the join session of the parliament on February 19. Both PUNR proposals are signed Valeriu Tabara and Ioan Ardelean, leaders of the PUNR groups in the House of Deputies and the Senate. RADOR, February 16
