Lately, spending more time at the Academy Library, I have intensively debated this issue with Ion Cristoiu, an old subscriber of the reading room. The discussion moved around the fountain in the small park, but also regarding the movement of the Romanian embassy to Jerusalem. Ion Cristoiu thinks that Liviu Dragnea is playing the American hand, and I am convinced that it is a deal made directly with Israeli politicians, who incidentally fall on Donald Trump's interest. Discussions on coffee, what do expect...
It's just that Liviu Dragnea's interview with journalist Alison Mutler for the Associated Press is surprising, not so much as anyone was interested in the fate of the PSD president, Alison Mutler being a journalist dealing with Romania since 1992, but that the material has been extensively taken over by the overseas media, the PSD president being quoted as the most powerful politician in Romania.
This is an approach that you will not find in the Romanian press. For us, the most powerful politician is Laura Codruta Kovesi, with her "We are DNA", the one whom together with Gen. Florian Coldea, the former first deputy of the SRI, has created a system by which he has subordinated the whole justice.
The two, the Calvin-Klein couple, as George Maior called them, got involved in over their heads in politics, changing governments, arresting CCR judges, parliamentarians, shaping the political life in Romania in their image and likeness. But let's return to Liviu Dragnea and his recent movements that seem to disregard the ICCJ process and DNA surveys.
The initiative to move the Romanian Embassy to Jerusalem put Klaus Iohannis in a defensive position; he had to fight in a complicated field, making some blunders. The president returned quickly and focused on Viorica Dăncilă, whose resignation as prime minister he asked, at each public appearance.
Only that his real opponent seems to remain Liviu Dragnea, whose political ambitions seem to go beyond the current framework.
From the position adopted by the president of the PSD, there seems to be a game trying to isolate Klaus Iohannis, this time in the strength zone of any President, the foreign policy. Dragnea, that he left Iohannis the European Union area, with the glamorous games of Germany, France, and the tough positions of Brussels, and wants to conquer American support through the powerful influence of the Jewish lobby.
More and more I incline to believe the idea that Liviu Dragnea will run for the presidency of Romania. Otherwise I do not see the purpose of political movements lately made. Liviu Dragnea does not seem to be a politician who works for others, such as the mayor Gabriela Firea-Pandele, or I don't know whom. The focus of his actions on diplomatic relations also indicates the direction in which he is thinking about acting.Citește mai departe ...
