PM to ignore political attacks on the Executiv

The PM also said yesterday that he would ignore political attacks on him and on the members of the Executive, but noted that not all members of his Cabinet have to be as wise as himself. Ponta said that, after the good news about the successful bond issue on external markets, on Tuesday it was easier for him to ignore any kind of political attack on the Government. ‘Sooner or later I will manage to convince Mr. Sova not to answer all attacks’, Ponta said.
He added that, if things go in the direction set by the current rule, people would also stand by the Government on December 9, the election date and many of the members of the current Cabinet would also rule the country from 2012 to 2016.
President Traian Basescu said during the meeting with the Romanian diplomats on Tuesday that, in the period between July 3 and 6, a parliamentary majority thought it ‘could blow rule of law to smithereens’, putting Romania ‘under the magnifying glass’ of its allies. The president said the situation in Romania had been ‘partially reset’ thanks to the rule of law institutions that ‘stood up in front of a fury’, nominating the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM), the National Anti-Corruption Directorate (DNA), the High Court Prosecution and the intelligence agencies.
Interior Ministry and Road Authority asked to check passenger transport
Regarding the road accidents reported in the last previous days, PM Ponta asked the Minister of Administration and Interior, Mircea Dusa, to check, together with the Romanian Road Authority (ARR), the licences and technical condition of minibuses and buses transporting passengers.
‘Mr. minister, I am going to ask you and the Romanian Road Authority to look into the situation of all those minibuses and buses that hold no licences or that hold licences obtained for all kinds of bribe but which make victims and kill people. You know, the interior minister as informed me, on Sunday we had the highest rate of road accidents this year. Fifteen fatalities, fifteen people who died in one day in road accidents’, Ponta said.
