Traian Basescu – in dialogue with PDL, UDMR and UNPR

The programe agreed upon with the IMF will gain support, the head of state says.

The president Traian Basescu stated, yesterday, after his meeting with the prime-minister Emil Boc and parties in the governing coalition (the Democratic-Liberal Party, the Democratic Union of Hungarians in Romania and the National Union for Romanian Progress – former independents), that, in his view, transparency in the loan agreements with the IMF, EU and World Bank is essential and that, for this reason, he had left the MPs these documents for study. “I was under the obligation to explain, together with the prime-minister and the minister of Finance, the agreement with the IMF, the EU and the WB to the parliamentary groups which support the Government. At the same time, I insisted on making some remarks on the way in which appointments in local government and de-concentrated organizations work and on the way in which the alliance enforces the existing legislation,” the president said.

“In my view, there will be support for this program of measures agreed upon with the IMF, because it is in the national interest,” Basescu said. The president also underlined, before the MPs, that 36 per cent of the budget goes into social programs, and 27 per cent into the wages of state employees; he iterated that EUR 10 bln-worth of debt and interests, collected between 2007 and 2008, have to be paid this year.

The meeting was attended, among others, by the deputy prime-minister Marko Bela, the ministers Sebastian Vladescu, Vasile Blaga, Adriean Videanu, Elena Udrea, Mihai Seitan, Daniel Funeriu, Gabriel Oprea, Cseke Attila, Laszlo Borbely, Catalin Predoiu.

The acting president of the National Union for Romanian Progress (UNPR), Gabriel Oprea, opened on Monday, on behalf of UNPR, the “Solidarity” Fund at the Romanian Bank for Development. The acting president Gabriel Oprea and the president Marian Sarbu donated, yesterday, RON 8,000 each, from their personal funds, to the “Solidarity” Fund, and will continue to make monthly donations to the Fund.
