President Basescu declared on Tuesday that the money for electoral campaigns, for general and local elections should be paid, in fixed amounts from the state budget or the local budget. Basescu said that this would be the only way to cease electoral bribe. We need to clean up elections, Basescu said.

If party financing will be at the will of the party, the reform of the political class will not be able to be implemented, Basescu said. This move would be extremely healthy for the political class he said.
