Moldavians are electing their parliament again today. The Romanian press reads about Tourism minister Elene Udrea being investigated by a parliamentary commission for the way she handled public money in promoting the department she heads. Elsewhere in the news, Romanians will be vaccinated against swine flu only with a locally-produced jab. Last but not least, Two other Israeli doctors from Sabyc clinic in Bucharest have been retained temporarily in the case of illegal human eggs traffic.

Moldavians are electing their parliament again today, after April's failed elections, when the communist party was accused of forging the results, Adevarul reads. PCRM was then accused of including dead people on the voters' lists, among other. Over 2.6 million Moldavians are expected to turn out for the ballot at the 1,955 section in Moldova and 33 in the Diaspora.

The previous law, requesting 50% of the electorate + 1 to vote, has been modified: the elections are now valid if one third of the electorate expresses its option. This is the first time in the history of the Republic of Moldova when the suffrage day is in the middle of the week and not on a weekend. Over 620,000 Moldavians living overseas.

The European Union said that the elections held today represent "a crucial test" that the Republic of Moldova needs to pass in order for it to benefit from the Eastern Partnership that Brussels "offered".

The Romanian press reads about Tourism minister Elene Udrea being investigated by a parliamentary commission for the way she handled public money in promoting the department she heads. According to Gandul, liberal Udrea is aiming for a domino effect, by pointing out the way other state departments, presided by social-democrats, have used advertising money.

Udrea nominated the ministries of Agriculture, Work, Environment and Administration. Her ministry allocated 10 million euros for promoting Romania as a tourist attraction and can also use up to 28 million euros in European funds to do so. Udrea accused the Environment minister and the Agricultural Minister for using only European money in promoting their programmes. Agriculture Ministry reps said they have to spend the money, otherwise they would lose it. The minister for Small and Medium Enterprises said they have no real money in their advertising budget, so he is not impressed with Udrea’s accusations.

Romanians will be vaccinated against swine flu only with a locally-produced jab, Evenimentul Zilei informs. The internal vaccine production is estimated to count 5 million doses by the end of the year, leaving a great deal of the population to wait for the next vaccine production. While rich countries design jab strategies, Romanian Health minister, Ion Bazac, is out on holiday. The jab doses are estimated to reach seven to eight million doses by March.

Infectious disease physician at "Matei Bals" Institute Adrian Streinu Cercel said Romania will not buy the vaccine from anywhere else but from "Cantacuzino" Institute in Bucharest. The population will be vaccinated in three cycles, as the jabs will be produced. The antiviral drugs supplies, currently counting 450.000 doses, will be increased with 1.300,000 doses.

Two other Israeli doctors from Sabyc clinic in Bucharest have been retained for 24 hours in the case of illegal human eggs traffick, Cotidianul reads. Doctor Levit Natan and Doctor Ziskind Genia have been accused of constituting an offence group, human egg traffic and working without a licence. They are to appear today in court, being proposed for preventive arrest. They are currently forbidden to leave Romania.

Sabyc owner Harry Mironescu, his son Yair Miron - resident doctor - and Cecilia Borzea, responsible for the clinic's relationship with the clients, are already under preventive arrest. Israeli ambassador Pinhas Avivi said that the Israeli authorities were working with the Romanian authorities to help solve the case, but that the embassy will offer humanitarian and consular support to the arrested Israeli, whether they are guilty or not.
