  • [01] "There is no crisis in the PNTCD", the party's vicepresidents say

    While in Craiova to attend the meeting of the National Council of the Christian Democrat National Peasant Students on Sunday, the vicepresidents of the Christian Democrat National Peasant Party (PNTCD), Victor Ciorbea and Ulm Spineanu, told a press conference there was no internal crisis in the party. Naturally, there are different opinions and other points of view, but such opinions are subNect to democratic debates, the two vicepresidents insisted. Victor Ciorbea said his alleged comeback to the trade union movement was out of of question. Ulm Spineanu has informed that he presented the prime minister with a scheme recommending the setting up of a development ministry and a national council for macrostructural balance. He said the Privatisation Ministry was useless and unnatural. Referring to the same issue, Victor Ciorbea said the dealine for achieving the governing programme expired on September 1, but the Democratic Party (PD) believed it was not a priority or, in his opinion, the PD attitude was a source of tension during the negotiations to pass well-known draft laws.

    [04] Hungarian press coverage of Romanian foreign minister's visit to Budapest

    Most Hungarian newspapers have welcomed the visit of Romanian Foreign Minister Andrei Plesu to Budapest on Friday. Major newspapers such as the "Nepszabadsag" daily are publishing pictures of warm shakehands along with comments on issues concerning the bilateral relations as the two foreign ministers have both expressed their commitment to further encourage such relations which many Western states applauded as an example to follow. Some newspapers point out that no progress was made concerning the Hungarian university issue, and Foreign Minister Andrei Plesu is quoted as saying that "there are two government orders but it would be too early to reach a conclusion before the Romanian Parliament would make its decision on the matter".
