Traian Basescu, Romania’s Most Western President

During  the  848 days while he stayed in power, President Traian Basescu  launched ambitious programs, supported by the population  and an intellectual elite.

However, many of the project are left unfinished because the chief of state lost his  partners : the Government and the Parliament.

Basescu  was Romania’s first President who tried to:

> put  Romania away from Moscow and get it more close to Washington;
> fight against Romania’s big corrupt characters;
> condemn Communism;
> establish a reform of the political class.

He managed to reorient Romania’s foreign  and security policy towards the West.

He also encouraged  the judiciary to investigate certain political leaders  even if they were members of the Government . However, the early elections project turned the political class against him.
