2.Interview with Traian Basescu: If we do not join Schengen, I am pessimistic that it will be possible before the justice mechanism is lifted / Plus: At Brussels, I cannot say: you know, Mrs. Ridzi is sick 
IF Romania's joining Schengen will be blocked because of the way justice functions in Romania, probably no one will be able to sustain Romania to join Schengen until the justice mechanism will be lifted, namely until we will have a working judicial system, President Basescu declared in an interview for HotNews.ro - RFI with Dan Tapalaga. The chief of state declared that Romania, technically speaking is ready to join Schengen but the decision is based on consensus. Read in the text some interesting declarations in the interview. I do not see Boc losing elections in the party if he will run. I hope he will run. PDL Parliamentarians should search for alternative solutions they have. But do they have them? Dan Voiculescu has finally found a political vehicle in Crin Antonescu (the Liberal leader) after years in which he could not get terrains or commercial spaces I have doubts that the IT search in the Ridzi case was serious but it was a request from the prosecutors after all. A vote cannot be recast unless prosecutors have something to add to what they already presentedI will have a talk with Mrs. Gatej to see what this is all about (referring to the news that recently appeared reading that Gatej collaborated with the secret securitate structures in Communism). This situation makes me wonder, indeed. I cannot go to Brussels and tell them that Mrs Ridzi is sick. There are things that I can comment with you or others but there is no justification for Brussels. The political decision needs to stand beyond sentimentalism.
