Prime Minister and Social Democratic Party (PSD, at rule) leader Victor Ponta said he had talked with Labour Minister Mariana Campeanu, after her consultation with National Liberal Party (PNL) Chairman Crin Antonescu, advising her not to resign as long as the allegations of President Traian Basescu are baseless, Mediafax reports. As for the fact that the National Integrity Agency (ANI) took notice in this case, Ponta gave a short answer: “Do you see? Is there higher efficiency?” Minister of Labour Mariana Campeanu said that except for President Traian Basescu, no one requested her resignation, but she must take a decision for her and her family’s sake, even if she does not feel guilty, but she risks not doing her job well because of stress. In 2005, the then-head of the Ilfov Pensions Office, Minister Campeanu would have granted her husband pension and attendance allowance given his inclusion in the first category of disability, with these benefits being given based on “unclear documents and questionable diagnoses,” the Media Investigation Center informs. The dignitary claims that the only objective of the media material about the retirement of her husband was to “denigrate” her and her family, through a move “lacking ethics and concrete proof,” adding that she considers the possibility of suing the authors.
