Romanian EC candidate still on hold

Vineri, 27 octombrie 2006, 0:00

Varujan Vosganian, the Romanian nominee for the European Commissioner seat, was not yet accepted by Jose Manuel Barroso. After the European Commissioners' meeting yesterday, the installment procedures begun only for the Bulgarian candidate, Meglena Kuneva, the former European Integration Minister.
From the fact that Vosganian is not a known individual in Brussels, to an alleged collaboration with the Foreign Intelligence services, more and more data seem to make Vosganian incompatible with the European Commissioner position.

In today’s newspapers, most of the articles tell about the fact that Vosganian’s party, the United Right Wing Forces, had the controversial businessman Sorin Ovidiu Vantu as official sponsor.

In a public interview, a former foreign intelligence officer claimed yesterday evening that Vosganian was also an employee of the Romanian Foreign Information Service.

European socialists are unhappy with the fact that Vosganian would bring an advantage to the Liberals in the European Commission, while the Green say that the examination of the Romanian candidate would be the same, regardless the political background.

Vosganian’s situation has a precedent: in 2004, Barroso demanded Latvia to find another candidate, after some information shown that the first nominee, Ingrida Udre, could be accused for illegally financing a party.
