Deputies and senators found that the true pleasure of being a dignitary is to travel the world, with or without an official mission. Less than 500 MPs spent a total of over 6,200 days abroad, some of them even managing to vote in their chambers, although documents show they were not in the country at the time.

204 deputies (out of 331) traveled around the world for 4,095 days, while 111 senators (out of 137) spent 2,125 days away from Romania. Destinations included Tanzania, Madagascar, the New Caledonia and the French Guyana. The expenses for the trips rise up to over 2 million euros, Cotidianul reads.

The newspaper also points at four deputies - Social Democrats Minodora Clivetti, Democrat Cezar Preda , Liberal Relu Fenechiu and Great Romania Valeriu Buzea - who were not in the country between June 21 and 30, still appear as voting in those sessions.

The Presidential Commission presented on Thursday an extremely critical report about the education system in Romania, causing major civil reactions all through the country and making it to the most front pages of newspapers.

According to the report, "Romania schools are inefficient, irrelevant, unequal and of a poor quality".
President Traian Basescu opened yesterday the public debate on this report, claiming that "maintaining the current education system, is a matter of national security" and that "problems must be solved now, or they'll have effects on the society", Evenimentul Zilei reads.

Less interested in the education than in electoral "charity", Opposition Social Democrats put pressure on the Government to approve more and more populist measures.
After approving the pensions' growth (a 2.5 billion euros effort) and several other similar measures, it's time for free medication for the elders, free cable TV and newspapers, free music shows and more SPA vacations to be approved, same Evenimentul Zilei informs.

A new victim appears in the anti-graft campaign: Iosif Mihai Puwak, the husband of the former European Integration Minister, Hildegard Puwak, was accused of detouring funds for professional training worth some 39,000 euros, Gandul reads.

The charges are a lot less that the ones brought on Thursday by the newly former "center-right pole" against the Democrat Party. Liberals, the Popular Alliance and the Christian Democrats (the last two don't have a parliamentarian representation) allied against Democrats, Social Democrats and populism.
The new pole accuses Democrats of using the Foreign Intelligence and the National Intelligence services for their own good, Cotidianul reads.
