Gaffe of mistakenly told truth? Asked about the information officers in Romania, Mircea Geoana, president of the Social-Democrat Party answered in a press conference on Wednesday: "We don't know how many of us information officers, to begin with!".

The question that troubled Geoana was: "Do you think there are too many information officers in Romania?"

Geoana's gaffe comes in the middle of a discussion he launched himself, claiming that the information services should be controlled by the Parliament.

In 2006, the PSD head was targeted by a media scandal, having his father accused of being employed by the former political police, Securitate.
