  • [01] PNTCD Summer School in Campulung Muscel

    A dialogue has been taking place on Wednesday between academic Constantin Balaceanu-Stolnici, PNTCD senator Matei Boila and student members of the ruling Christian Democrat National Peasant Party (PNTCD). While attending the seminars hosted by the PNTCD Summer School in Campulung Muscel, the two guests have recalled the basic principles of the Christian Democracy: Jqual rights for all, human solidarity, property and family rights. Explaining the solidarity principle, Mr Balaceanu-Stolnici said he believed that a Christian principle should be also applied to the foreign policy. He warned that, unfortunately, the Romanians proved they were not tolerant. We should promote understanding, human solidarity and eliminate religious conflicts, Mr Balaceanu-Stolnici added. In his opinion, justice should be based on Christian values as well, because the Christian morals were based on two main elements: the legal system of punishment and the punishent according to law. In this respect, senator Matei Boila said both the morals and manners were not included in a party's political programme, but God could judge the way each man obeyed them. RADOR

PNL first vicepresident Valeriu Stoica, also Romania's justice minister, said after the meeting that, according to the PNL leadership, any kind of fiscal hardship this year was unjustified. On the other hand, the PNL will ask the Finance Ministry to examine the discriminating way the SMEs fiscal policy was applied as compared with the big loss-making state-owned economic agents. Referring to the alleged dismissal of Finance Minister Daniel Daianu, the PNL leader said his party was not supposed to discuss simple statements. As far as the Bell Helicopter affair was concerned, Mr Valeriu Stoica announced that the issue would be subject to debates during the next session of the Permanent Bureau, only after the Finance and the National Defence Ministries (MApN) would provide every information available.
