Senate Speaker Calin Popescu Tariceanu was hospitalized on Saturday and underwent a minor surgical intervention on his left leg, according to sources close to the leader of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats (ALDE). He will not attend the ruling coalition’s meeting on Monday.
“It concerns a very simple medical problem. However, it will most likely make him unable to attend the Coalition’s meeting on Monday,” the aforementioned sources stated for Mediafax. The Senate Speaker has been on vacation for well over a week.
The surgery was minor and has nothing to do with the motorcycle accident he suffered in 2006, the aforementioned sources pointed out.
