The Social Democratic Party-PSD will initiate their own version of national security laws promoting the idea that the existing Supreme National Defense Council-CSAT be replaced with a National Security Council, PSD president Mircea Geoana announced on Tuesday.

The leader of the main opposition party in Romania made the statement a year after ex-President and PSD leader Ion Iliescu called a similar initiative by the governing National Liberal Party as proof of “political infantilism”.

The law establishing CSAT was conceived by a former PSD government.

Geoana said the change was necessary because CSAT in its current form is paralyzed by the “fight” between the President and the prime minister.
