Romanian PM's Control Body verifies the way ministers have spent advertising money. Elsewhere in the news, the Moldavian People's Christian-Democratic Party (PPCD) requested the Constitutional Court for a recount of the votes cast during the July 29 general elections. Last but not least, a 62-year old Romanian artist, Ion Barladeanu, discovered two years ago in a building's basement by a gallery manager, is currently exhibiting its collages at Fred Gallery in London, next to Warhol and Duchamp.

Adevarul reads Romanian PM's Control Body verifies the way ministers have spent advertising money, Agriculture minister Ilie Sarbu declared in an interview for Romanian TV channel Realitatea TV. The measure has been taken after the constitution of three Parliamentary commissions meant to investigate the way public money are spent, particularly the money for promoting each ministry.

The investigation commission for the ex-Youth and Sport minister Monica Iacob Ridzi checked the way money was used for organising "Youth Day" and the Chamber of Deputies discussed the final report on July 27. Another Commission analyzes the manner in which Environment minister Nicolae Nemirschi awarded a 500,000 euros contract to Ars Advertising company. The third investigated minister is Elena Udrea, heading Tourism, for the way she employed public money in promoting her ministry.

The Moldavian Christian-Democratic Popular Party (PPCD) requested the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Moldova for a recount of the votes cast during the July 29 general elections, Evenimentul Zilei informs, quoting Romanian news agency Mediafax. PPCD did not manage to make it to the Parliament with its 1.9% and its members accuse breaching of numerous electoral laws.

PPCD representatives say that several electoral sections experienced power cuts while votes were being counted and claimed that electoral observers were prevented from entering some electoral sections. They said that in certain regions of the country, bulletins had been photographed before being introduced in the voting box.

The Constitutional Court can only reach a decision after the Central Electoral Commission issues a report on the last month's pooling. After the April 5 elections, the Communist Party (PCRM) requested for the votes to be counted again, which cost the Republic of Moldova 185,000 euros from public funds.

According to Cotidianul, a 62-year old Romanian artist, Ion Barladeanu, discovered two years ago in a building's basement by H'art Gallery manager Dan Popescu, is currently exhibiting its collages at Fred Gallery, next to Warhol and Duchamp. Barladeanu shows four collages of the ex-communist dictator couple, Ceausescu, at Fred Gallery in London, where important American and European contemporary artists.

"Collage" exhibition is meant to bring together works of artists who made an artistic statement in the 20th century, like Gilbrt&George, Joseph Cornell, Robert Motherwell, Ben Nicholson, Jacques Villeglé, Andy Warhol and Marcel Duchamp. The collages of the Romanian artist mock the Ceausescu couple and its relationship with Soviet Moscow. The private view is set for August 6 and the exhibition will stay open to public until September.
