It is peace again in the Social Democrat Party (PSD), where everyone enjoys the promising results after the local elections. In fact, they enjoy it so much, they already prepare to share the presidency and the future Government among themselves. Meanwhile, not as a surprise, the Bucharest City Hall is running out of managers, after the former PSD member Sorin Oprescu won the Mayor office.

Former PM Adrian Nastase may run for President, while the head of the party, Mircea Geoana, will gain the Prime Minister seat in case Social Democrats win the elections. The announcement - which also means that the two politicians have finally come to terms - may be made today, after the party's National Council session, Evenimentul Zilei reads, mentioning that PSD will also ally with the Conservatives for the general elections.

The news of the day remains that the European Parliament demanded Italy to cease recording fingerprints of the Roma immigrants. The position was adopted with 336 votes in favor and 220 against, Evenimentul Zilei informs. Italy reacted promptly: Interior Minister Roberto Maroni, the one who came with the plan to gather all Roma fingerprints, including those of children, said that the campaign will continue "until the end", since the census is "a battle for civilization", Cotidianul reads, quoting the Italian news agency ANSA.

Just to throw a shadow of a doubt on the European Parliament's decision: 40 excavators were stolen by Romanian citizens in Italy from various construction sites. Not cars, not wheels, but huge machinery, all the equipment being then sent to Romania. Other thins Romanians steal: copper cables from the Barcelona - Madrid railroad, yacht engines in Holland and miles of railway in Germany, Gandul notes.

Back in Bucharest, another park - one of the last ones - is about to be torn down, to make place for luxury villas, Jurnalul National informs. The entire area near the Straulesti lake will become a residential complex, despite the fact that it is common knowledge how much Bucharest lacks green areas.

Not a surprise: at the same time, tons of files are shredded in the Bucharest City Hall before the last "inherited" managers are laid off, Gandul found out. The head-architect doesn't feel good either, same Gandul notes, counting the number of controversial projects approved by Adrian Bold, including two office towers build wall-to-wall to an Armenian church and a Catholic Cathedral, respectively.
