The leaders of the political parties showed delight after their first meeting with the interim president, Senate speaker Nicolae Vacaroiu on Wednesday. The statements made after the meeting referred to the blossoming economy and finances - a fresh new topic for the Opposition representatives.

At the same time, after desperately trying for months to block the law on the National Integrity Agency (ANI), Conservatives, Social Democrats and Liberals suddenly became supporters of the law, even in its first version, put up by the sacked Justice Minister, Monica Macovei.

Romania's commitments to the European Union and NATO were defined as priorities by the interim president, Vacaroiu.
