    [02] The Presidency of ROMANIA and PDSR - Social Democracy Party of Romania - continue their war of words

    The war of words between the Presidency of Romania and the main opposition party of this country continues. It was triggered by the affirmation of President Emil Constantinescu on Friday comprising accusations at the address of former Securitate and former members of communist nomenklatura. RADIO ROMANIA ACTUALITATI quotes that Sunday saw another sequence of the exchange of retorts between the afore mentioned parties. PDSR released a new communique following the speech of the Presidency spokesman Rasvan Popescu who, in his turn, had answered a first communique of the Social Democracy Party of Romania. The PDSR document reads that we witness the transformation of a useless psichoanalysis exercise into a furious attack against all those that do not share the same beliefs as those of the President of Romania. PDSR repeats the request to the President of Romania to apologize to those that were seriously insulted by the words uttered on Friday drawing attention at the same time on the dramatic consequences of the affirmations of the President of Romania. PDSR also specifies that the President is mistaken when wishing to solve the problems of the ruling coalition by rerouting attention to non existing targets. On Friday President Emil Constantinescu said that his efforts were made useless by the former class of party workers and old Securitate officers that gathered, after the fall of Ceausescu,in the Social Democracy Party of Romania -PDSR- and in the Greater Romania Party-PRM. The two parties have asked the president of Romania to apologize, a request which is quoted as being unjustified by the spokesman of the Presidency of Romania. RADOR
