USL: Basescu looking for scandal and won’t accept cohabitation. We want to collaborate

Catalin Ivan, the leader of PSD Euro-deputies declared on Tuesday that cohabitation was possible in Romania and USL wants to collaborate with the head of state to show international partners that institutions are functioning normally. The president is the only one who is looking for scandal and does not accept cohabitation.


Ivan showed that premier Victor Ponta and USL leader give important messages at international level showing that cohabitation is possible in Romania.“We are trying to repair the damage done by PDL this summer when they lied to European chancelleries, to European and international partners that there was a coup d’état in Romania and democracy was not functioning,” Ivan said. He showed that Traian Basescu remained a “president who likes scandals” when following the summer referendum the Romanians told him he could not continue to be a president.


On Monday night, at the press conference organized at Cotroceni Palace, president Basescu was asked about the statements of the defense minister who said that once the Constitution was modified we should propose the amendment of the law on CSAT functioning, about the introduction of provisions referring to attributions in other fields of national security. In Basescu’s point of view minister Dobritoiu’s opinion is an attack: “No state institution should be out looked, they should be all attacked, and that is what the defense minister is doing. CSAT can take over any national security problem, either food, energy of economic safety. So I don’t see what changes could be done,” Basescu said.

Defense minister Corneliu Dobritoiu participated in a debate in the field of defense organized by the Academy. There he had an exchange of contradictory ideas with Iulian Fota, presidential councilor for defense because Dobritoiu criticized the National Defense Strategy proposed by the Presidency.
