Predoiu told the hearings that the last six to eight months of political strife were implicitly affecting the agenda of the reforms on justice.
‘This agenda doesn’t exclusively belong to the Ministry of Justice. Since the reform in 2004, it is the Superior Council of Magistracy, a really parallel ministry that holds the main tasks and powers in justice.
The main failure in justice in 2009 was not the adoption of only two of the four proposed Codes, but the lack of assuming a minimal agenda on justice by the whole political spectrum,’ said Predoiu. He also stressed that for that reason the main mission of the future Justice Minister is to seek consensus among all the political parties for a minimal agenda to be backed up in the Parliament.
