Basescu: Political parties need to give up practice of making appointments mostly based on political criteria
‘All the political parties need to give up this practice of making appointments mostly based on political criteria […] No party should be tempted to take itself for the state. I will defend the neutrality of the public jobs’, Traian Basescu said, after taking oath for his second tenure as Romanian President.
He also underlined Romania will be a more democratic country if the parliamentary reform represents the first step towards the reform of the state, it will be a consolidated state if the justice reform continues and it will have economic growth if the state resources are spent in a more efficient manner.
‘We need a new arangement between the state and the citizen. The role of the state is to serve the citizens […] A new arrangement between the state and the citizens implies also a new set of priorities, to be exclusively in the public interest’, the head of the state added.
