Romanian President's daughter Elena Basescu becomes intern at the European Parliament
In this position, Elena Basescu may attend EP commission works, debates and the writing of reports. She would receive a monthly salary paid from the budget of the Democratic-Liberal MEP.
Monica Iacob Ridzi is head of the youth wing of Romania's pro-presidential Democratic-Liberal Party (PD-L)., where Elena Basescu serves as secretary general. Last year, Elena Basescu's name was circulated as a possible candidate on PD-L lists for the European Parliament elections which took place in late 2007, but his father said at the time he would not encourage her to run for the seat as she needed more experience.
