Incumbent President Basescu invited his countercandidate Mircea Geoana to a public debate. The debate will be organized at the Public Policy institute on Thursday, at 7PM moderated by Robert Turcescu. The decision was taken today, after the staff of the two candidates met.

IPP announced that the debate will last two to three hours and will be similar to the November 20 debate when Basescu met with Geoana and Antonescu.
