    [02] Statements of political personalities

    [03] Ioan Mircea Pascu - Social Democracy Party of Romania

    The vice - president of this party, Ioan Mircea Pascu said that for the time being no decision was adopted regarding alliances with other political parties which are represented in the future parliament of Romania. Mr. Pascu said there are arguments for and against in all cases while in the case of cooperation with the National Liberal Party there seem to be certain advantages in the foreign area while in the country the NLP has a poorer image. In as far as the Democratic Party is concerned Mr. Pascu said that party had an ansocial and anti democratic attitude which practically disqualifies this party. With regard to the Democratic Magyar Union of Romania, the leadership of PDSR estimates that this political party represents a partner of negociations and things could develop toward a future parliamentary bilateral support. The Social Democracy Party of Romania is ready to cooperate with other political parties and coalitions as well as with unions of parties and they are now working on it.

    [04] Valeriu Stoica - National Liberal Party

    The first vice-president of the National Liberal Party Valeriu Stoica told RADIO ROMANIA ACTUALITATI that at least for now his party would be in the opposition being, as it were, the representative of the center-right wing parties. Valeriu Stoica also said that his party might take into consideration the alternative of ruling alongside PDSR, the Democratic Party and UDMR - the Union of Democratic Magyars of Romania. This would be, Mr. Stoica said, part of a government of national union. However the final decision would be made by the Permanent Delegation of the Party which will take place towards the end of this week.

    [05] Vice - president of the Democratic Party, Radu Berceanu

    The vice-president of the Democratic Party, Radu Berceanu, told RADIO ROMANIA ACTUALITATI that according to him his party would be in the opposition. If PDSR comes forward with proposals that are interesting for the party and for Petre Roman, then the proposals are to be considered.However until now PDSR has not yet forwarded any proposal of collaboration.

    [06] Corneliu Ciontu, Greater Romania Party

    First vice-president of Greater Romania Party, Corneliu Ciontu, quoted by RADIO ROMANIA ACTUALITATI said that his party did not set itself the task to rule at any price and mentioned that for the time being PRM is not taking into account any political alliances for a future ruling activity. However a possible alliance with PDSR would be possible is PDSR asked for such an alliance. Greater Romania Party would never request an alliance.

    [07] Borbely Laszlo, Union of Democratic Magyars of Romania

    The Executive vice - president of UDMR said that his party was very much concerned of the march to power of the Greater Romania Party and voiced his hope that the Romanian political class would unite to face the danger of extremism. The UDMR leader said his party would make an alliance or alliances with that party or with those parties that offer compatible programmes in as far as reform programmes are concerned as well as issues and problems specific to the Magyar minority.

This 17 name list is to be published in MONITORUL OFICIAL. There is a second list which includes 19 persons that had certain links with former Securitate but whose activity cannot be certified and hence the names are not to be published by MONITORUL OFICIAL and public opinion is informed of this.

    [10] Report on the development of Romanian economy

    On 29 November this year the International Monetary Fund will debate the report on the evolution of the economy of Romania this year. The document was drawn by the team of experts that supervised the developments linked to the latest stand-by agreement of the Fund and of Romania. The report establishes the fact that in the last two years the economic policy of Romania has led to the mocro-stabilization from the economic point of view of the country. The risk of major mistakes is no longer present. The reforms of the banking systems are considered as positive as are the budget constructions adopted.

    [11] Statement of foreign minister Petre Roman before leaving for Vienna

    Minister of foreign affairs Petre Roman left for Vienna to attend the last ministerial council of OSCE before Romania takes over the chairmanship of the organization. He said that in the speech he was to deliver in Vienna he would stress the responsibilities which our country had by the taking over of chairmanship of OSCE. We quote: "It is my duty to ensure the support which Romania herself had until now. Romania needs very much to continue good links with the European Union as well as the strategic partnership with the United States if we wish to go forward on the path of democracy, liberty and economic reconstruction" end of quote.
