The Government modified the Supreme Defense Council Law on Tuesday, in order to allow the Senate president, Mircea Geoana, to participate in the Council's (CSAT) sessions. Mircea Geoana is head of the Social Democrat Party (PSD), a formation that joined the Democrat Liberals (PDL) to form a majority Government. Geoana's participation in the sessions was one of the conditions to form the alliance.

On Monday, Geoana already seemed certain of his future seat in the CSAT, declaring during a press conference in Craiova that "next week, when I'll CSAT vice president, we will discuss the projects I vouch for. There are infrastructure projects for the Dolj county and the Oltenia region, helping the entire country. Our participation in the Government is a guarantee that the projects will take shape".
