Ponta replies to Reding, saying she is campaigning for PDL

The European Commission (EC) remains “very concerned” about the attacks against democracy in Romania band expects  premier Victor Ponta to stick “thru deeds” to its pledges, Mediafax reproduced an  AFP report quoting European Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding as saying.The Romanian PM replied that Reding knows nothing about the political situation in Romania and added that she is on an electoral campaign on behalf of the Democratic Liberal Party (PDL). He added  that Romania and Bulgaria “are not allowed to enter Schengen” and that the countries in Eastern Europe, including Romania, “must be put in the corner”, given the European Union-level talks, amid the economic crisis, of a Europe divided in two, namely the performing states and less-performing states respectively.Furthermore, Dan Radu Rusanu, vice-president of the National Liberal Party criticizes Viviane Reding for her stand on the situation in Romania. The European Justice Commissioner “gets overinvolved, she exceeds her duties,” Rusanu told RFI. “Ms. Viviane Reding belongs to the same political family to which the Democratic Party, too, is part of. Basically, she spoke, without knowing the realities in Romania, about some things, what her fellow Democrat Party members told her about it. Had she gone to Mr. Graham Watson from the PNL instead, you would have seen that his reaction would have been quite different”.
