Plesu criticises PSD

In an ample interview published by Hotnews, writer Andrei Plesu looks at the Romanian society and addresses several subjects, from politicians such as President Basescu or PSD leader Victor Ponta to current governmental actions and the WikiLeaks scandal. Plesu, who served as Culture Minister in 1990 and Foreign Minister in 1997-1999, criticises the Social-Democrats’ decision to appoint Victor Ponta party leader: “I am confident the PSD will not live long with Ponta as leader, this is a party with a lot of political experience and I cannot understand how these people, who have a lot of iconic representatives in public life could accept this compromise,” he claims. He says Ponta has no “use of proper words as a politician.” “Just look at how he uses the word ‘devil,’ which does not go well with his political position. He proves he has a senile mentality, although a young man.” The former presidential aide claims the Boc government was forced to take a lot of unpopular, tough decisions, “which had to be done during recession.” About President Basescu, Plesu says “has been negligently spontaneous, which brought about a certain political stress, meant to poison every episode of Romania’s political life.”
