Basescu might appoint presidential aide at SIE

The Parliament will vote tomorrow the new chief of the Foreign Intelligence Service (SIE). According to Romania TV, the most likely nominee is presidential aide Adrian Daniel Moldoveanu, currently acting as state counsellor for national security within the Presidential Administration. Moldoveanu is also the National Tax Agency chief Sorin Blejnar’s wedding godfather. His name is also mentioned on the pesurse.ro website, which quotes sources from the Presidential Administration. Moldoveanu was a candidate for the Democratic Party (PD) during the 2004 elections, but failed to win a deputy’s seat. After the elections, he became a counsellor on the SIE monitoring parliamentary committee and, in 2005, Traian Basescu appointed him presidential aide. Other names mentioned so far as Ungureanu’s potential successor include Democratic-Liberal Party (PDL) senior deputy president Teodor Baconschi, ex-Defence Minister Mihai Stanisoara and the deputy Cezar Preda, incumbent chairman of the SIE monitoring parliamentary committee.
