The European Telecomm Market Commissioner, Viviane Reding, announced that she will closely collaborate with the Romanian authorities, in order to find a sustainable solution designed to ensure the independence of the Romanian telecomm authority. Still, until such a solution is found and implemented in a stable legislation, the infringement procedures against Romania will continue, Reding's spokesman, Martin Selmayr, told HotNews.ro on Friday.
Last week, Romanian authorities issued a new emergency ordinance, claiming that is meets with the demands of the European officials. According to the ordinance, the former authority, ANC, was reshuffled and put under parliamentarian control.
Former ANC presidents Liviu Nistoran and Dan Georgescu declared that the new ordinance deepens the problem, and that the fact that infringement procedures continue are a prove that the ordinance does not meet all demands.
