Romania turns into a bazaar, a Turkish flea market, importing old time Eastern practices into the heart of Europe”, says professor Tom Gallagher in a letter for Financial Times, presenting the political crisis in Romania.
The same subject is approached by French daily “Le temps”, where historian Gerard Delaloye writes that president Basescu’s suspension is a second putsch coordinated by former president Ion Iliescu, the one believed to have forced Ceausescu’s fall.

“Most of the parties involved are fronts for cartels led by speculative capitalists whose grip on power and wealth was threatened by President Traian Basescu's reforms, especially in the justice sector”, Tom Gallagher’ letter reads.
“President Basescu is a populist but he confronted this oligarchy at no small risk to himself”, Gallagher continues, accusing the political parties of accepting to play the role of “fronts for cartels led by speculative capitalists whose grip on power and wealth was threatened by President Traian Basescu's reforms, especially in the justice sector.”

In “Le temps”, Gerard Delaloye comments that Romania is affected by a political crisis begun after the elections in 2004, intensified due to “the president’s suspension by a Parliament with huge power, inherited directly from the Communist regime”.

“In fact, the Social Democrats won the elections in 2004 in the Parliament, but Basescu had to sign an alliance with two smaller parties in order to lead”, the journalist adds.

The paradox seen by Delaloyle is that Romania’s accession to the European Union caused the tensions’ growth between the president and the Opposition. According to the author, who quotes Romanian newspapers, the Revolution in 1989 was nothing more than a putsch put up by Ion Iliescu.
