Democratic Liberals rejected any integrity criteria as they adopted a new statute which according to PDL member and one of the reformers, Cristian Preda will send a negative message abroad. One of the biggest Romanian exporters, Dacia Renault might consider moving the production of some car models to Morocco. The government is also facing a social threat as 10,000 people threaten to protest at Cluj, central Romania dissatisfied with the new Labour Code. Last but not least, a Romanian stole money from 132 German cards and the main suspects are former employees of the secret services in Romania.
Democratic Liberals rejected the new integrity criteria proposed by party reformers, thus sending a negative message abroad, one of the party reformers Cristian Preda declared for Evenimentul Zilei.
The decision to reject integrity criteria sends a negative message abroad, that in Romania justice is politicized and unreliable. In an interview for the newspaper, Cristian Preda talks about the vote and the future steps for the party.
Currently, the party's branches are stronger than the National Permanent Office which lead to the rejection of the criteria because, according to Preda, last week there were many voices in the party who agreed with the new integrity criteria.
One of the main problems presented by Preda is that the Democratic Liberal party did not consider the consequences of their actions when they decided not to lift the immunity of a colleague because they cannot rely on the justice system.
How is the European Commission supposed to believe our progresses in justice, Preda wonders.

10,000 people threaten to protest in Cluj, central Romania against the new Labour Code and the government's plans to take responsibility for it in the Parliament, Romania libera reads. So far, in the last years, each time union leaders announced so many protesters, only half were actually present.
Nonetheless, union leaders are determined to go on with their protests, irrespective of the number that will show up. Union leaders want the new labour code to protect the employee and not the employer.
The rally is scheduled for today, at 2 PM downtown Cluj and will continue across town. If the law will pass, unions threaten with a strike protest and other actions.
