Romania will have a new political map, as the uninominal law comes into force. Parties reactivate old local barons, in order to gain the county governor seats. The rest is the same: president Basescu makes it to the US State Department for discrimination, Romania loses all chances to import cheaper natural gas from the Caspian Sea and some businesses seem to develop rapidly, with Mitsubishi and Mercedes as new names on the list of potential investors.

The European Union takes action against the global warming: EU leaders gathered in Brussels and signed an agreement on drastic limitation of CO2 emissions. A 20% decrease of emissions is scheduled to take place before 2020, compared to the level in 1990, Evenimentul Zilei reads.

Also in Evenimentul Zilei, a new institution is described - the county governor. 41 counties will have their president elected in the first round, in the new uninominal system.
